Looking for a recipe to make for Valentine's Day or just a special meal? 

4 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbs. chopped fresh rosemary
1 Tbs. grated lemon peel
2 tsp. each coarse salt and pepper
2 Pork tenderloins (1 ½ to 2 lbs. Each)
2 Tbs. STAR Extra Virgin Olive Oil
½ cup beef broth
½ cup STAR Balsamic Vinegar
2 Tbs. butter
2 Tbs. STAR capers

Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Combine garlic, rosemary, lemon peel, salt and pepper.  Press mixture into tenderloins.  In large skillet with oven-proof handle, heat oil over medium heat.  Add tenderloins and cook, turning frequently, until browned 8 – 10 minutes.  Transfer to oven.  Roast 10 minutes.  Remove pork from pan and keep warm.  Set pan over high heat and stir in broth and vinegar, scraping up browned bits.  Bring to boil and cook until reduced by 1/3 to ½.  Whisk in butter, 1 Tbs. at a time.  Stir in capers.  Cut tenderloins into thick slices and serve with sauce. Goes well with rice or mashed potatoes.

Serves 4 - 6
