Ingredients:  
10 garlic cloves, peeled and grated to a fine paste on a rasp grater (about 2 tbsp)
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tsp light brown sugar
1/3 c chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 tbsp juice from 2 limes
1 tbsp chopped fresh chives
4 tbsp (1/2 stick) butter cut into four pieces
Salt and black pepper to taste

Directions:
Immediately after placing the pork in the oven, mix the garlic paste with the water in a small bowl. Add the oil to the still hot skillet and swirl to coat, off the heat, add the garlic paste and cook with the skillet's residual heat, scraping up the browned bits with a wooden spoon, until the sizzling subsides. About 2 minutes. Set the skillet over low heat and continue cooking, stirring frequently until the garlic is sticky, 8 - 10 minutes, set the skillet aside off the heat.
While the pork is resting, set the skillet over medium heat; add the red pepper flakes and brown sugar to the skillet and cook until sticky and the sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute. Add the cilantro, lime juice and chives, stirring to blend the flavors, 1 to 2 minutes. Add any accumulated pork juices and simmer for 1 minute longer. Off the heat, whisk in the butter, one piece at a time. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Slice the rested pork (tented with aluminum foil when removed from the oven) and pour the sauce over the sliced pork.
