Honey Bourbon Grilled Pork Tenderloin

READY IN: 11mins
Recipe by ~Nimz~

We had this tonight and it was quit good. A little different. The sauce is really rich and creamy and I loved it, but it doesn't go well on mashed potatoes. Modified from a recipe from cooking light.

Too much Bourbon I think, without the extra sauce it was good though.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Trim fat from pork.
  2. Combine onion and next 7 ingredients (through the garlic cloves) and place in a large zip-lock plastic bag.
  3. Add pork and seal.
  4. Marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour.
  5. Remove pork from bag, reserving marinade.
  6. Salt and pepper pork. (We used a generous portion of fresh ground pepper).
  7. Prepare grill to medium heat.
  8. Place pork on a greased grill and reduce heat to low.
  9. Cover and cook for about 20 minutes for a nice pink color inside. (NOTE: I have a Weber grill and it gets pretty hot on low so use your own judgment. 20 minutes was perfect for us).
  10. Turn every 5 minutes and baste with 1/2 cup marinade.
  11. Remove to a 200 degree preheated oven to keep warm. (Let it sit for about 10 minutes while you make the sauce).
  12. Sauce:.
  13. The onions will be a little crip, so it that does not suit you, remove them with a slotted spoon before preparing the sauce.
  14. Place flour in a small saucepan.
  15. Gradually add remaining marinade and water, stirring with a whisk until blended.
  16. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook for 3-5 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly.
  17. Spoon gravy over pork and serve.
