DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 325°F.
  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat and brown the pork on all sides.
  • Put the meat on a rack in a roasting pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Cook 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, add the pecans to the oil in the frying pan, cook over medium heat 1 minute and remove.
  • Combine the bourbon, sugar and 1/4 tsp salt.
  • Add to the frying pan and boil until the sugar dissolves and bourbon reduces slightly, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • After the meat has cooked 30 minutes, begin basting with the bourbon sauce.
  • Cook until a meat thermometer stuck in the center reaches 160°F, about 30 more minutes.
  • Five minutes before the meat is done, sprinkle with pecans.
