Bring sides of meat together and secure at 2-inch intervals with string.
Place tenderloins on a rack in a roasting pan coated with cooking spray.
Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 45 to 50 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 160°, basting frequently with marinade.
Let stand 10 minutes; slice into 18 slices, and arrange on a large serving platter.
