Recipe by Miss Alice
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.

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.
- 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

- 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.
