Serve 8 tenderloin pieces on a warmed serving platter. Decorate around the meat with piped mashed Yukon Gold potato; or mashed sweet potato, piped alternately with at least 3 dozen cherry tomatoes. The bright red of the tomatoes adds colour to the plate of tenderloin. Warm juices from the baked tenderloin will compliment the sweetness of the tomato. Lay sprigs of fresh herbs across the Pork Tenderloin, alternately with halves of cherry tomato. Serve with your choice of(asparagus-rice) (Orzo) and vegetables of your choice. Additional sauce served in your favourite gravy boat would not go amiss.

Remove from heat. 4) In a medium/large mixing bowl, combine honey, teriyaki sauce, Dijon mustard.
