I just made this for the first time and it is a definite keeper. Wrap pork tenderloins with bacon. Using a sharp knife, poke slashes all over them. Lay them in a baking dish. In a bowl, mix 3/4 cup soy sauce with 3/4 cup of brown sugar, a diced large onion, garlic powder and some pepper. Let them marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours and then bake them in a 300 degree oven for two hours. This is a correct time and temperature. Believe me, I wouldn't lie to you!
While the pork is cooking, make the potatoes. Melt a stick of butter in a pan. Saute' one large minced onion in the butter. Add 8 tablespoons of flour and whisk and cook for a couple minutes. Gradually pour in about 4 cups of whole milk whisking until thickened.
Add freshly cracked black pepper.
Add an assortment of diced herbs. I added parsley, rosemary, chives and thyme.
Butter a baking dish.
Shred some cheese. I used Gruyere.
Thinly slice 8 large potatoes.
Place the potatoes in the baking dish.
Sprinkle cheese between the layers.
Pour the herb sauce over the potatoes.
Shred some additional cheese.
Sprinkle it over the top. Place the potatoes in a 350 degree oven for about 1 1/2 hours until golden and bubbling around the edges.
This is what the pork looks like when it is done cooking.
And here are the potatoes.
The pork is so tender you can cut it with a fork. The potatoes are creamy and delicious. Yum!
