Yes, 30 minutes is enough for tenderloin. I only gave it 4 stars because I thought the apricot taste would be more prominent. It was good, but I have other tenderloin recipes I like better.

Question - The pork will be done with only 30 minutes in the oven?

I have prepared many recipes for pork tenderloin and this one was the best! I prepared it according to the recipe and didn't change a thing. The rosemary rub gave it a lot of flavor and the preserves provided the sweetness. Great flavors combined! Browning it sears in the juices and the flavor of the rosemary & garlic.
