My sister's neighbor, Heather, makes this amazing pork tenderloin recipe and my sister just raves about it. It seems like a really simple recipe, but it packs a lot of taste. It would be perfect for a summer night barbecue with friends. Serve it with some potatoes, grilled veggies, and a healthy salad. Yum! So heat up your grill and impress your guests tonight with this delicious, quick meal.


1/4 cup Kentucky Bourbon
1/4 cup light soy sauce
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 large cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 cup Dijon mustard (I do half dijon and half spicy mustard)
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, or 1 teaspoon finely minced fresh ginger
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
dash hot sauce
2 pork tenderloins, about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds


In blender or food processor, combine bourbon, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, mustard, ginger, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and oil; pulse until smooth. Place tenderloin and marinade in a food storage bag; refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight (I always marinate it overnight because otherwise it's not as juicy or tasty). Cook 4 inches from a hot charcoal fire for 15 to 25 minutes or until the pork has reached 165° internally and is no longer pink in the center. Baste occasionally while cooking. Slice in 1/2-inch thick slices to serve.

This is a wonderful combination of flavors. This would be perfect to grill for this weekend!

Jennyborg, you can use whisky and add in a tiny bit of sugar.
