Great marinade. I added 1/3 cup applebutter, fresh onion slices and fresh minced garlic. Marinated overnight. I pan seared the tenderlion and finished it off in the oven. This is a keeper recipe.

Tip the plate scrumptious. The marinade came together in a snap and a half batch was plenty for my one pound pork tenderloin. I marinaded overnight for about 20 hours. Used my favorite cooking technique to prepare the meat, searing it first in a cast iron skillet before popping the full skillet into a 450 degree oven for 15 minutes. In this case, I included cubes of sweet potatoes, butternut squash and chunks of vidalia onions, and put about 1/4 of the marinade in the skillet. At the same time I simmered the remaining marinade. The vegetables roasted perfectly and absorbed much of the flavor imparted (not to mention some beautiful caramelization due to the sugar content of the apple jack). Once cooked, I added the marinade to the pan while the meat rested. The combination with the roasted vegetables was fabulous, but the onions were truly over the top and something I would consider a requisite (so much so I would even make them separately in said manner). Served with steamed asparagus and my tastebuds were in rapture. Thanks mikekey for an easy but divine meal.

Wonderful marinade! I used it on 2 boneless chicken breasts so I cut it down in half. Marinated overnight and baked it in the oven. Flavorful and very tender. I'm eating leftovers today for lunch. YUM! Made for I Recommend Tag Game 2013.

What a great marinade and tenderizer!!! I used this on a small pork tenderloin and let it marinade for 8 hours and then we grilled it, and we did brush on the marinade to help get a nice char on the outside. It was so tender on the inside, about melted in my mouth. I think this is a 2nd or 3rd time I have used Jack Daniels in a marinade and just love the results. I served it with fried rice and green beans for one tasty dinner. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for you win in the football pool.

Great marinade for pork! I used these on a couple of thick pork chops, marinating for about 6 hours, then pan-searing and finishing in the oven. Apples and pork are a great combination and this marinade brought those flavors together beautifully. Looking forward to using this on a pork roast cooked on the grill - thanks for sharing the recipe!

I made a quarter recipe of the marinade for about a pound of pork, and it was plenty. It was good - and definitely tastes like Jack Daniels!

What a great marinade I used it on pork chops, the only change I made was I used 3 tablespoons fresh minced garlic in place of the powder and increased the olive oil to 1/4 cup, thanks for sharing Mikekey, will make again!
