- 1 pork tenderloin (1 1/2 pound)
- 1/2 cup dry sherry
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
- 1/2 cup ground almonds
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 cup onion (chopped)
- 1 carrot (peeled and diced)
- In small bowl stir together sherry, soy sauce, pepper and garlic; pour over pork in a self-sealing bag. Seal bag; marinate in refrigerator 1 hour.
