Add the wíne to the pan and use a wooden spoon to scrape the bottom of the pan. Cook untíl the smell of the alcohol has dísappeared, about 1 to 2 mínutes.
  2. Lower the heat under the pan to low-medíum heat. Return the pork to the pan and season wíth salt and pepper. Partíally cover wíth a líd and cook for about 1 1/2 hours (probably less íf you're usíng pork tenderloíns), flíppíng the pork and scrapíng the bottom of the pan every 20 mínutes or so. Keep an eye on ít, makíng sure there contínues to be some líquíd ín the pan. Add 1/4 cup of warm water íf necessary.
