Honey Bourbon Grilled Pork Tenderloin

"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."

directions

  • Trim fat from pork.
  • Combine onion and next 7 ingredients (through the garlic cloves) and place in a large zip-lock plastic bag.
  • Add pork and seal.
  • Marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour.
  • Remove pork from bag, reserving marinade.
  • Salt and pepper pork. (We used a generous portion of fresh ground pepper).
  • Prepare grill to medium heat.
  • Place pork on a greased grill and reduce heat to low.
  • 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).
  • Turn every 5 minutes and baste with 1/2 cup marinade.
  • Remove to a 200 degree preheated oven to keep warm. (Let it sit for about 10 minutes while you make the sauce).
  • Sauce:

  • The onions will be a little crip, so it that does not suit you, remove them with a slotted spoon before preparing the sauce.
  • Place flour in a small saucepan.
  • Gradually add remaining marinade and water, stirring with a whisk until blended.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook for 3-5 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly.
  • Spoon gravy over pork and serve.

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

    This is delicious! a nice marinade which translated into a nice gravy. And since pork tenderloins were on sale today I bought two 2-lb packages and made another batch of marinade that I froze the other one in for a later meal! Thanks for the post.

    This is one of my favorite recipes. I make it a lot in the summer when we can grill. We always serve it with mashed potatoes and like the gravy sauce on the potatoes as well! My kids even love it and ask for it when we haven't had it for a while in the winter. I usually serve it with a nice green veggie and a salad. Yummy!

    Really great. I loved this and so did the fam. I cooked it a little too long, but that was my fault, it was still juicy and good! Next time, and there will be a next time, it will be much yummier.

    Very tasty! This was easy -- nearly foolproof. The instructions for the Weber grill were perfect. I used whole wheat flour and some butter for the sauce, and subbed lime juice for the lemon juice since that's all we had in the cupboard. Quite tasty and a delicious way to eat pork! Thanks!

I was one of the original members of Recipezaar that was truly a community of individuals that enjoyed each other in forums and chat rooms. I've been a member of this site since 2003. Made some tremendous friends that I still think of often. I'll continue coming here because my recipes are here and so many more that I tried over the years as a member. It's just a tad boring now and just another recipe site like all the rest. Sad.
