A Sunshine Original

Tonight I decided to not follow the recipe I had picked out at all and to just wing it. I am so glad I did too! I was going to make honey pecan pork chops. I misread the original recipe and bout a pork tenderloin instead of pork tenderloin chops. That was when I decided to go with it and make a recipe of my own.

As the hubby and I sat down to dinner (at the table even!), I was apprehensive. I already had a back-up plan in mind just in case neither of us liked it. Hubby cut into the pork, raised his fork to his mouth, and chewed. I waited ont he edge of my seat. "This is really good." Success!!! I tucked in and was also pleased with what I tasted. Unfortunately (or fortunately however you look at it), we ate dinner so fast that I didn't even get a single picture to upload onto his computer to share with you. Oh well, enjoy anyway.

Honey Pork Roast with Garlic
Recipe by me

1 2-lb pork tenderloin, rinsed and patted dry
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 Tbl warm water
3 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. In a medium-sized bowl, mix brown sugar, honey, water, and garlic together. Place the pork rost in the boil and cover with the marinade completely. Allow to sit for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Place roast in a small pan (I used my brownie pan) and pour the rest of the marinade over the top. Cover with aluminium foil and cook for at least an hour. Remove foil and continue to cook for another 15 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Cut and serve. We had baked sweet potatoes. Next time I'll cube the sweet potatoes and roast them with the pork.

Isn't it good when mistakes turn out well?

Hope you're keeping warm with all the snow you're being bombarded with and that pesky door of yours is well and truly shut tight.

Take care!

My verification word is so apt "INGLIS" - well, I thought it amusing!
