  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 (3/4-pound) pork tenderloins
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water

Preparation

  1. Stir together first 6 ingredients; remove half of mixture, and chill.

  3. Remove tenderloins from marinade, discarding marinade.

  5. Sauté onion and garlic in 1 tablespoon hot oil in a saucepan until tender. Add wine and broth; cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture is reduced by three-fourths. Stir in remaining molasses mixture, and simmer 5 minutes. Pour through a wire-mesh strainer, discarding onion and garlic; return to pan.
  6. Stir together cornstarch and water. Stir into wine mixture.
  7. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring constantly, 1 minute.
