The lightly spiced mustard and Bourbon sauce livens up this pork tenderloin. The pork is marinated for 4 hours or overnight, so plan to start the recipe early.


  • 1/4 cup Kentucky Bourbon
  • 1/4 cup light soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, or 1 teaspoon finely minced fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • dash hot sauce
  • 2 pork tenderloins, about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds


In blender or food processor, combine bourbon, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, mustard, ginger, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and oil; pulse until smooth.

Place tenderloin and marinade in a food storage bag; refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight.

Cook 4 inches from a hot charcoal fire for 15 to 25 minutes or until the pork has reached 165° internally and is no longer pink in the center.

Baste occasionally while cooking. Slice in 1/2-inch thick slices to serve.

Serves 6.

Great Recipe... Pork Tenderloin with Bourbon, Member MacBob311

I love this recipe and over the past several years have used it many times. It is the best to marinate it for a solid 24 hours before barbecuing it.
