The Twist: It's a fresh, weeknight-easy spin on Sunday pork roast with gravy. A quick reduction transforms the flavorful marinade into an indulgent sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Remove silver skin from tenderloins, leaving a thin layer of fat. Combine brown sugar and next 5 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic freezer bag; add pork. Seal bag, and chill 8 to 18 hours, turning bag occasionally. Remove pork from marinade, reserving marinade.

Step 2

Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Grill pork, covered with grill lid, 8 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 155°. Remove from grill, and let stand 10 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, combine reserved marinade and cornstarch in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Cut pork diagonally into thin slices, and arrange on a serving platter; drizzle with warm sauce.

Step 4

*1 1/2 lb. flank steak may be substituted. Reduce grill time to 6 to 8 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness.

I also have to watch my sodium.   I don't know if you have tried it yet.  But Trader Joe's brand soy sauce is 100mg lower in sodium than Kikkoman's low sodium.  and is much cheaper!

Pretty darn tasty. I would cook this again. Served with Parmesan mushroom grits and simple sauteed asparagus.

I made this with 1 pork tenerloin for 2 of us and it would have served 3. It ended up marinating for 2 days and that was fine. I made the full recipe of marinade ingredients and glad i did because that is what makes the delicious sauce! i let the sauce simmer about 30 minutes while prepping other things. Very easy and quick prep, and grilling.

Pretty simple and easy. I made this in the oven using my broiler since I don't have a grill. Very prevalent bourbon flavor.

This was excellent. I didn't change a thing. I served with grilled broccolini and orzo. Will definitely make again.
