Bourbon Pork Tenderloin

Recipe Table of Contents Return to Pork Entree List
I found a version of this recipe on It requires marinating for 12 hours, so prep this one the night before. It is a very savory pork dish. I cut the salt, because it seemed too much with the amount of soy sauce in the original.

  • 4 to 5 pound pork tenderloin
  • 1 1/4 cups soy sauce
  • 1 cup bourbon (I use Jack Daniels, always)
  • 1/2 cup Worchestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup light type of cooking oil such as canola
  • 6 to 8 minced garlic toes
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Combine all ingredients except port and salt, in a sealable container Wisk to combine.
