With its subtle aroma, this "Sweet and Savory" sauce is a delicious way to turn a regular dinner of pork tenderloins into something special. The recipe is fast and easy, and uses ingredients which can usually be found in almost any house hold.
- 1 (1 lb) pork tenderloin
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup brandy
- 1⁄3 cup brown sugar
- 1 small yellow onion, chopped
- 3 large garlic cloves, crushed
- 3 large fresh basil leaves
- In medium size bowl, mix Brandy, Brown Sugar, Onion and Garlic. Set aside.
- Melt the Butter in a large frying pan until bubbly, then slowly add the Brandy mixture.
- Stir the sauce until it comes to a boil, then crush the Basil and drop it into the pan.
- Let the sauce boil for about five minutes, then bring the stove to a simmer.
- Place the Pork Loin into the frying pan, and cover.
- Let the Pork simmer until it reaches an internal temperature of 160-165 degrees.
- Let stand for about five minutes, then serve and enjoy!
Very, very tasty! We made this to use up the rest of our brandy. I was afraid that an entire cup of brandy would be overwhelming, but it was actually quite subtle; same with the garlic. We didn't use the basil because I wasn't willing to spend $3 on a bunch of basil when the recipe only calls for 3 leaves. It was still great.
