FREDA's notes for this recipe:
Cracker barrels, or the Next thing to it. . . Grill . . without the Grill These are Tasty critters. Found several on the INternet Similar to these. But this is the One I use.
Hope you enjoy.

NOTE: "BE PATIENT" Don't get in any Hurry making these.
These will take You about 40 Min to cook on the stove top. The Marinate you cook the Tenders in will carmelize first, then you scrap the tenders thru the Carmelizing in the bottom of the pan, turning as your scraping the carmelize, keep scraping and turning, and they will eventually be Brown with the carmelized sauce, and soo tasty.
Make it Your Way...

I LOVE this recipe! Ive used it many times (without the lemon juice, so I will have to try that) I marinate them and grill them, but I would think this method is wonderful! Will try for sure! Thanks for sharing. :)

Thank You Deb. . . Its easy and tastes good too. The Brn sugar makes a little Sweeter marinade. The Homey is great too. I have made it Both ways. Depends on what I had on hand. NO HONEY, Use BRN SUGAR.
