Le porc et les Cerises demi-cadratin Croute

Submitted by: LADYPHOENIX61

Introduction

The english translation of this French recipe is: Encrusted Pork and Cherries. Surprisingly simple, this makes an elegant show-off piece for dinner guests who'll think you spent hours preparing it! It's also easily adjusted to serve 4 instead of 8 by preparing only 1 tenderloin. A favorite at Easter, only you and I will know the crusts comes from refrigerated dough. Shhhh.....
NOTE: The longer the tenderloins marinate the better the flavor and tenderness.
