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.
