Pork Tenderloin Southern Style
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, jalapeno and garlic; saute until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add molasses, vinegar, mustard and soy sauce; reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until quite thick, about 7 minutes.Advertisement
Rub tenderloins generously with black pepper. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a medium ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tenderloins and cook, turning, until well browned on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes.
Brush the pork generously with some of the barbecue sauce. Place the skillet in the oven and roast for 7 minutes. Turn over the tenderloins and brush them with remaining sauce and roast for 7 to 8 minutes more, or until the internal temperature is 160 degrees F. Let the pork rest for 5 minutes. Carve into 3/4-inch-thick slices and serve.
