Because of a request... [May. 13th, 2003|11:48 am]
The recipe I referenced in my journal previously...

2 whole pork tenderloins (about 12 oz each)
1/4 cup soy sauce (approx 60ml)
2 tablespoons dry (i.e.: not 'sweet')red wine (approx 30ml)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon (1.25ml) red food coloring
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) ground cinnamon
2 cloves garlic, crushed.

Remove and discard fat from the meat
combine all of the ingredients except the tenderloins in a large bowl; add the tenderloins and turn them over a few times to coat them compleely. Cover at let stand at room temperature one hour, or refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally. (Note: I refrigerated them for 30 hours, turning every few hours as I remembered to)

Drain pork, reserving the marinade, and place the pork on a wire rack above a baking pan (Note: there will be scorched sugars on both the rack and the pan, so don't do this with your favorite items, unless you're willing to risk this.)

Bake in a preheated 375 degree farenheit oven, about 45-50 minutes; turn and baste with marinade frequently.

The recipe suggests eating it cool, but I found it was (still is, in fact) wonderful either hot or cold.

FWIW, the food coloring is entirely optional (I've never bothered), and Chinese five-spice is a nice alternative to the cinnamon.

I can't begin to express how much it tickles me when John and I share cooking adventures, even (or maybe especially) long-distance. It was great fun finishing up the last of his hummus this weekend with the thought that he was enjoying "my" roast pork. (-:

someotherguy and I have cooked for each other a lot, but last night we cooked together (between bouts of "cooking" together, if you get my drift) and it was *wonderful*. I love cooking with people who know what to do in the kitchen. My risotto flopped, but it was still fun.

*waggles eyebrows* Why, yes, I believe I do. (-:
