Heat the olive oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
Once the oil just begins to smoke, transfer the pork to the skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the bottom has browned. Rotate and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes opposite side until browned.
In a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar, minced garlic, and hot sauce. Spread the mixture over the top of browned pork.
Transfer the pork in an oven-safe skillet to the center of the oven, then roast for about 20 to 30 minutes until the center of pork reaches 140 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer.
Allow pork to rest in the skillet for 10 minutes at room temperature, loosely covered with aluminum foil. The temperature should rise to 155 degrees F while standing.
Carve and serve warm. Enjoy!
