"If I had to narrow my choice of meats down to one for the rest of my life, I am quite certain that meat would be pork." -James Beard
This is a quick and easy pork that has the flavor of a smoky barbecue sauce without the hours and hours of slow cooking. Using molasses is a great base for marinades because it is sticky but also it brings sweet, savory and slightly bitter tones to your dish.

|1 Tbsp||molasses or black treacle|
|1 Tbsp||no salt added tomato paste|
|2 tsp||white wine vinegar|
|1 tsp||smoked paprika|
|1 lb||pork tenderloin|

Place the molasses, tomato paste, salt, vinegar and paprika in a medium-sized bowl (one large enough to hold the pork tenderloin) and whisk until smooth.
Add the pork tenderloin and toss to coat well. Let marinate for at least an hour - overnight is best.
When ready to cook place a large skillet in the oven and preheat to 400°F.
When the pan is hot add the olive oil and then the pork.
Roast for about 20 minutes. Turn every five minutes or so.
Let rest for about two minutes before carving.
