Bourbon Marinated Pork Tenderloin

I don’t know about you, but pork loin isn’t usually something that gets my family too excited.  The kids rarely run through the house and say “Yes!  Pork tenderloin night!”.  Well, this changes everything!  This pork loin is so easy to put together.  Simply prepare the marinade in the morning and then at dinner time, with the help of your grill, your main course can be ready in 20 minutes.  It doesn’t get much better than that!

2½ pounds pork tenderloins

1 cup soy sauce

1½ cups bourbon

½ cup water

½ cup grapeseed oil

8 cloves garlic, fresh, minced

½ cup brown sugar

3 tablespoons cracked black pepper

2½ teaspoons ground ginger

1½ teaspoons kosher salt


Combine all ingredients, except pork, in a gallon-size resealable bag. Whisk until combined.

Remove 1 cup of marinade and reserve in the refrigerator for later use. Add pork loin to the bag, remove the extra air, seal, and place in the bag in the refrigerator for 8-12 hours.

Preheat your grill to 400 degrees. Remove pork from the marinade and place on the grill.  Cook for 5 minutes. Flip over and cook for an additional 5 minutes.

When the internal temperature of the pork tenderloin reaches 145, remove the pork from the grill, cover it with foil and let it rest on a platter for 10 minutes before serving.

While pork is grilling, place reserved sauce in a small saute pan on the stove. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring often to keep from boiling over. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 10 minutes.

After the meat rests for 10 minutes, slice and arrange it on a serving platter, topping it with the extra sauce.
