Favorite Ingredients Friday (Carmalized Pork)

Good Friday to you all! Happy Memorial Day a bit early! It's time for another Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange!

Upcoming Themed Schedule

June 1- Freezer cooking meals (bulk meals that freeze easily)

June 15- Refreshing drinks

June 29- 4th of July edition

My recipe this week was pulled off of Eat Better America, a great site for healthy recipes. The one I'm sharing is delicious and easy to fix!

Carmalized Pork Slices


  1. 1 lb pork tenderloin, cut into 1/2-inch slices

  2. 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  3. 2 Tbsp packed brown sugar

  4. 1 Tbsp orange juice

  5. 1 Tbsp molasses

  6. 1/2 tsp salt

  7. 1/4 tsp pepper


  1. Spray 10-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Cook pork and garlic in skillet 6-8 minutes, turning occasionally until pork is no longer pink in the center. Drain if necessary.

  2. Stir in remaining ingredients; cook until mixture thickens and coats pork.
