    We had this tonight. It was delicious. The flavor is really infused the pork beautifully. We served it with a mixture of brown/white rice cooked in chicken broth and mixed with black beans. It was a great combination. A cuban style feast.
    If you are serving to people with mild taste buds, try using just 1-2 serrano peppers. With 3 it is quite spicy. Cook a portion of the tenderloin with no serranos for the kids.

    This is a variation

      This is so delicious! Nancy is right, it is a little spicy for kids (my kids are not as adventurous as hers are so I always have to make two versions of every dinner) but my husband and I really loved the intense flavors - the cloves and the ginger and the nutmeg and the chiles it was so unique but a great combination of flavors. I will definitely be making this again.

        Additional tips:

        For sweeter flavor add some orange juice and substitute brown sugar.
        For some savory twists try substituting a milder, more flavorful pepper and add chili paste to compensate.
        In either case you can go gung-ho and grind it up in the mortar and pestle!
