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.
