We loved this. I didn't have any cherry preserves so I just used frozen mixed berries and boiled them down til they were thick, added sweetener and used that instead of preserves.

This recipe was wonderful. I used a little over 5 lbs of tenderloin, and there was plenty of marinade to coat. I did think the consistency of the marinade was quite thick, so I added about 1/3...

Rather than using Smucker's Cherry Preserves, I use a jar of sour cherries, a tablespoon of sugar, and corn starch to thicken. It makes the compote have a zestier flavour.
