Welcome Back!

Our dear friends Jayne & Jamie were in town this weekend for a wedding shower that was being throw in their honor and a bunch of our friends had a delicious dinner waiting for them when they got into town on Friday night. It was a total group effort and the meal was great. I made this Pork Tender after seeing it on Weelicious (Great food blog!) last week and it turned out to be super delicious.

The great thing about this recipe is that I actually did the marinade two days prior and then all that had to be done beforehand was to grill it. I'm planning to use the leftovers in a stir-fry tonight.

I served this with my Strawberry Salad with Strawberry/Lemon/Basil Dressing and Roasted Potatoes.


Southern Style Pork Tenderloin via Weelicious


  • 1/4 cup bourbon 
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 whole pork tenderloins, approximately 2 pounds total, trimmed


  1. Place the first six ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. Pour into a large zipper bag or glass container large enough to hold the pork tenderloins and marinate overnight or up to 2 days.
  2. Preheat a grill to high heat, and oil the grates.
  3. Remove tenderloins from the bag, reserving the marinade, and grill for 14-15 minutes, turning halfway through or until the internal temperature is 140°F. Remove from heat and set meat aside to rest for 5-10 minutes to allow the juices to rest and redistribute.
  4. While the meat is resting, place the marinade in a small pan. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
  5. Slice the tenderloin on a bias and serve with the sauce if desired.
