6 tablespoons honey
2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons dry sherry or chicken broth
3 garlic cloves, pressed
3/4 pound pork tenderloin
- Stir together first 5 ingredients in a shallow dish or heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; remove 1/2 cup mixture, and set aside. Prick pork several times with a fork, and place in remaining mixture. Cover or seal, and chill 1 hour. Remove pork, discarding marinade.
