Grilled Bourbon-Marinated Pork Chops or Pork Tenderloins

READY IN: 12hrs
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

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
