Bourbon and cola team up to make a tasty glaze for this pork tenderloin. This spiced glazed pork tenderloin makes a great meal with potatoes or rice.


  • 1 cup cola
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 2 pork tenderloins, about 1 1/2 pounds
  • spicy grill seasoning for pork or chicken or seasoned salt and pepper
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil


In a small saucepan, combine the cola, brown sugar, lime juice, ginger, cinnamon, pinch of salt, mustard, and bourbon. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 5 minutes.

Heat oven to 350°.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Trim fat from the tenderloins and remove silver skin. Rub pork all over the the salt, chili powder, cumin, and black pepper. Sear in the olive oil, turning to brown all sides, about 8 minutes total. Transfer the pork to a lightly oiled baking pan or leave in the skillet if the skillet is oven-safe. Roast for about 12 minutes, then brush generously with the bourbon mixture. Continue roasting for about 10 minutes longer, or until the pork registers 165° on an instant read thermometer stuck into the thickest part of a tenderloin. Let rest for about 5 minutes before slicing.

Bring the glaze mixture back to a boil and serve with the sliced pork.

tasty but too sweet, Member Rollingesto

I made this last night; next time i'd cut the sugar in half. I also found the sauce far too runny so I thickened it with some corn starch.
