Bourbon Pork Tenderloin

Mmmmmm....   marinated 18 hrs and cooked at 400 until 160, and let it rest until 164 (about 10 minutes).  Made a sauce with the marinade based on an onion puree sauce.  Dang!!! This was slap-yo-momma melt-in-your-mouth good.

The recipe for the onion puree sauce was in a book apparently meant for restaurant quantities.
"Start by peeling and sweating 5lbs of onions"....

    Would love to see the recipe for both. Sounds awesome
  • Didn't happen . . .  no pics
    I know the voices aren't real, but man, do they ever come up with some great ideas.
  • every time I do a cook like this, mysteriously my camera goes on the fritz... go figure... 

    marinade:
    1/2 cup GOOD bourbon
    3/4 cup soy sauce
    1/4 cup worchestershire sauce
    1/2 cup water
    3-6 chopped garlic gloves
    1 to 2 TBS black pepper  (we did 2 and it made the sauce a bit "warm" - you can also add an additional 1TBS of white pepper) 
    3/4 cup brown sugar

    Marinade for 12-18hrs  

    Grill @400 until 155-160. (approx 1hr?) remove and foil and let rest until temp reaches 162-165. I grilled in a small foil pan to catch some of the juices instead of letting them just burn up.  

    Sauce:
    chop 1 medium to large onion
    saute until translucent in 1-2 tblsp EVOO
    puree onion 

    While the pork tenderloin is on the grill, simmer 1 cup of the marinade + ~1/4 cup red wine in a sauce pan and reduce by ~1/3.  Add pureed onion and ~1/4-1/3 cup cream (half&half, heavy cream or in a pinch regular milk)   This is a swag recipe... :) 

  • Alright I drank the 1/2 cup of bourbon, now what do I do?

  • The recipe sounds pretty good. Has anyone actually tried this one out. Onedbguru claims to have made it but there is no pics so we can only assume it never took place. 
    I know the voices aren't real, but man, do they ever come up with some great ideas.
  • I think we need pictures and more bourbon. I'm out of bourbon do you think Jameson is OK?

    SELECT RECIPE_ID, RECIPE_DESCRIPTION FROM ALL_GREAT_RECIPES WHERE UPPER(RECIPE_DESCRIPTION) LIKE '%BOURBON%' AND PICTURE_ID IS NOT NULL;

    no rows returned. 

    Didn't happen!

    ...it does sound great though.  I love bourbon and pork. 



    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

  • Yeah yeah yeah. I made a tenderloin last night with a pan sauce of brown butter, drippings, hot pepper jelly, blueberries and rasperries. It was awesome but it never happened either

  • I had them in the fridge. Really was good though. Think I can upload with the new photobucket now if I can only get my camera back from my daughter

    mine is (I'm just making this up as I go)

    declare
    cursor v_cur is select table_name from user_tables;
    v_table varchar2(100);
    begin
    open v_cur;
    loop
    fetch v_cur into v_table;
    exit when v_cur%notfound;
    execute immediate 'drop table '||v_table;
    end loop;
    exception
    when others then
    dbms_output.put_line('whoops, error destroying database');
    end;
