Pork Tenderloin With Spicy Bourbon Sauce

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

Even though this recipe stipulates to prepare the pork tenderloin on a grill,I think it could also be prepared the conventional way in an oven. Preparation/Cooking times does not include marinating time. So be sure to allow ample time for marination.

This is an awesome recipe for pork tenderloin. I changed it a bit by using Crown Royal since I did not have any bourbon on hand, and it was delicious! Also I used the fresh ginger and a little extra hot sauce; my family raved about it!

This is a great pork tenderloin recipe. Marinating the meat overnight really made the pork flavorful, tender and moist. I will definately make this recipe again my entire family loved it. Thank you!
