Spiced Pork with Bourbon Reduction sauce

Makes 4 serving (serving: 3 pork slices --2 tablespoons sauce)

1/2          cup bourbon 
1/4          cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4          cup low-sodium soy sauce
3             tablespoons cider vinegar
1-1/2       teaspoons bottled minced garlic
1/2          teaspoon black pepper
1/2         teaspoon chili powder
1/4         teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8         teaspoon ground allspice
1/8         teaspoon salt
1            (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed
                    **Cooking spray**

1 .      To prepare sauce, combine the first 6 ingredients in a medium saucepan; bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook until reduced to 1/2 cup (about 11 minutes), stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
2 .      To prepare pork, combine chili powder, cinnamon, allspice, and salt, stirring well; rub evenly over pork. Cut pork crosswise into 12 slices.
3 .      Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with sauce.

Pair pork tenderloin with sweet 'n' tangy bourbon sauce for a delicious 20-minute dinner.
Substitute chicken broth for bourbon (if you prefer), and serve with couscous or rice.
