A very easy but tasty and pungent sauce goes well on pork tenderloin and chops.
It isn't the type of sauce you would stir your meat into but rather one that is best spooned on as a condiment.
Since this recipe doesn't use cornstarch as a thickener, it take about thirty minutes to reduce to desired consistency. Begin when you put your meat into the oven.
