  2. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in the preserves and season with salt. Serve either a t room temperature or lightly chilled.
  3. Preheat the oven to 425°F Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Rub the mixture over the pork and shake off any excess. Turn under the small ends of the pork to make the thickness of the tenderloins fairly uniform.
