Caramelized Pork Slices Recipe

"This easy treatment for pork caught my eye when I was paging through a cookbook and saw the word "caramelized," Elisa Lochridge recalls from her home in Beaverton, Oregon. "The slightly sweet glaze is yummy. I like to serve this over noodles or rice...or with mashed potatoes."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound)
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. Cut tenderloin into eight slices; pound each with a meat mallet to 1/2-in. thickness. In a nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium-high heat; brown pork on both sides. Remove from pan.
  • 2. In same skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; saute garlic 1 minute. Stir in remaining ingredients. Add pork, turning to coat; cook, uncovered, until a thermometer reads 145°, 3-4 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 4 servings.

"Fantastic! The glaze is so simple but I will make more of it next time I make this (it's so good you'll want extra)! I used pork chops but will likely try it on chicken as well."
