It is important that the tenderloin is allowed to slowly cook approx 2-2.5 hours

Check frequently and baste with juices in pan, it may be necessary to add a little bit of water

During the last 45 minutes add the remainder of the general Tao sauce and baste frequently with pan juices

After cooking, the pork will easily come apart with a fork

You can serve this yummy pork on a tortilla, a bun or simply on its own which is what my family loves. I usually make scalloped potatoes and a tossed salad to go with it.

Enjoy!
