    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Plan ahead the pork needs to marinade for a minimum of 12 hours. Use this marinade for 2 pork tenderloins or 6-8 pork chops. You can reduce the bourbon to 1/3 cup but 1/2 cup is better!

      Excellent marinade! I did the tenderloin option, and placed them in a grill basket attachment on my rotisserie. They cooked in about 20 minutes. Used Jack Daniel's for the bourbon. Nice combination of flavors. I think this would be good on chicken thighs also, or boneless country spareribs. Made for Grilling tag game at

      I tried this recipe this week-end with pork tenderloins. I didn't change anything except to add more brown sugar & garlic. What can I say, the meat was incredibly tender and flavorful. We like it so much we heated up the marinade to make sure it was safe and to use with the meat. This deserves more than 5 stars for sure. Thank you, thank you! UPDATE - Made this again (still love it). I use the low sodium soy sauce and don't add any other salt. That way people can add salt to their dish as they like. I have to keep on the low sodium side of recipes. Thanks! UPDATE: Made this for my sister & her husband. He has health issues and any meat he eats has to be really tender. Cooked it in the crockpot this time is absolutely melted in our mouths. Another convert!! Thank you again and again!!!!

      This was so good, at 9:00 at night I had to yell at the boys to not eat anymore (they each had 4 chops for dinner) so Dad could have for lunch. Went out and bought more pork chops, marinated them then froze so we can have anytime without waiting a day!
