    Preheat oven to 350°F. If you have an oven safe skillet, then place the oil in it and set it on the stove over med-high heat. If you do not have an oven safe skillet, then just place the oil in a normal large skillet and prepare a baking pan by lining with foil and spraying with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

    Once the tenderloin is browned on all sides, if your not using an oven safe skillet, then transfer it to the prepared baking pan. Place in oven and bake for about 20 minutes. Then, remove from the oven, drizzle the glaze over the tenderloin and continue to bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until it's reached an internal temperature of at least 145°F.
