I love it when I have the chance to go ‘off piste’ with a recipe. I just stick my head in the cupboard, and make do, with whatever. This was one of the success stories during our February break, when I refused to do the original recipe route and head out to the supermarket!
1 (2-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
3 teaspoons finely minced fresh rosemary
¼ teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Marsala wine drizzled over!
red onions and leeks (any veg will do here) – to roast with the pork
1) Preheat oven to 350°F. Place pork on a roasting pan; set aside.
2) In a small bowl, combine garlic, rosemary, sugar, and pepper; rub over all sides of pork. Brush with the honey and vinegar mixture.
3) Roast 30 minutes; remove from oven and brush the surface of the pork once more with the honey and vinegar mixture. Return to oven; roast until internal temperature reaches 160°F, an additional 30 to 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest 10 minutes; slice and serve.
