Sweet & Smoky Roasted Pork Tenderloin

4 to 5 lb. pork tenderloin (whole or half) ($7.80)
1 C. brown sugar ($.20)
2 T. honey (.15)
2 T. soy sauce ($.10)
2 T. worchestshire sauce ($.10)
1 C. water, divided (free)
1 tsp. cumin ($.05)
1/2 tsp. black pepper ($.05)
2-3 cloves garlic, minced ($.10)
1 medium yellow onion, julienned ($.10)
1 medium red pepper (bell or ancient), seeded and minced ($.10)

Heat oven to 350. Rinse and pat dry the pork tenderloin. Grease a 13x9" baking pan.
In a medium sized bowl, combine brown sugar, honey, soy, worchestershire sauce, 1/4 C. water, cumin, black pepper, garlic, and minced pepper. Spread mixture evenly onto pork.

Add onions to bottom of pan and pour remaining water into pan.
Roast at 350 for 1 hour 45 minutes to 2 hours - checking meat every 30 minutes, and basting meat thoroughly.

Meat is done when it has reached an internal temperature of 165 and the outside of the meat has developed a nice crust.

Let meat rest 15 minutes before slicing.

**This makes a great deli meat - just cool to room temperature before slicing very thin.

Yields = 6-8 servings
Cost: $8.75
Cost per serving: $1.46

** As deli-sliced meat, this should yield 12-16 sammies.**
