Recipe by Sage
I found this recipe in a site promoting the other white meat. Balsamic vinegar combines with a touch of brown sugar to make a delectable glaze for this pork.. A quick browning gives the pork color and seals in the juices for a more tender dish. This recipe is simple and very tasty both hot or cold.I made 2 so I can have leftovers. Add baby potatoes to your pan and you will get these great roasted potatoes.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs pork tenderloin
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1⁄3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon crushed garlic
- 2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
