Sauce preparation

Combine all of the ingredients except the pork loin in a skillet over medium heat and stir until the 21 Missions caramel agave sauce thickens.

Cooking the pork loin

Add the pork loin to the same skillet with the thickened caramel agave sauce. Turn the pork loin frequently and baste continuously with the caramel agave sauce.

Cook for about 30 minutes until the pork loin is tender and cooked through. When the pork loin is well glazed remove the pork loin from the skillet and rest the pork loin for a few minutes before slicing.


Place the sliced pork loin onto a serving platter and drizzle with the thick and delicious caramel agave sauce. Serve with a crisp salad or lightly cooked snow peas or sugar snap peas.
