Bourbon Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Sauce
Marinating meat is so easy to do and it really gives a big flavor boost! I use Kentucky Bourbon in this marinade for a real taste of the South!
Recipe type: Entree
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup Bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 (1 pound each ) pork tenderloins
  • ⅔ cup sour cream
  • ⅔ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons dry mustard
  • 4 green onions, finely chopped
  1. Combine the bourbon, soy sauce and dark brown sugar in a glass mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Pour into a large zip lock bag. Add tenderloins and seal. Refrigerate at least 2 hours, turning the meat occasionally.
  3. Remove from the marinade and discard the leftover marinade. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 55 to 65 minutes. ( I like to cook pork until it reaches 160 to 165 degrees on an instant read thermometer)
  4. While the tenderloins bake, prepare the Mustard Sauce. ( Or prepare it a day ahead so the flavors can develop) Note: The flavor is pretty intense, so if you want to tone it down a bit, just use less dry mustard. I love the flavor of this sauce, so I make the recipe exactly as I have given it here.
  5. Combine ⅔ cup sour cream, ⅔ cup mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons dry mustard and 4 chopped green onion. Cover and chill.
  6. When ready to serve, slice the tenderloins and serve with the mustard sauce.
