Lori Comstock of Chesterfield, Virginia combines fresh garlic, herbs and sugar-free maple syrup to turn pork tenderloin into a distinctive entree. "The touch of sweetness makes the meat dish a big hit with my family," Lori says.


  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound), cut into 1-inch slices
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar-free maple syrup


  1. Flatten meat to 1/2-in. thickness. In a resealable plastic bag, combine the garlic, marjoram, thyme, salt and onion powder. Add pork, a few slices at a time; shake to coat.
  2. In a nonstick skillet, cook pork in butter over medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink. Drain and discard pan juices. Add syrup to meat in skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, turning several times, for about 3 minutes or until syrup is absorbed.
