I was looking for something new to do with a pork tenderloin this week and saw a few that I liked. One featured a bourbon marinade and another was resplendent with rosemary and garlic. Lacking ingredients to create either one at the moment...I did what I always do...I improvised and this recipe is what I came up with. My family loved it and so did I. Thanks to the great recipes posted here for my inspiration.

How to Make Honey Bourbon Glazed Tenderloin


  • 1**The tenderloin I used was four lbs and very wide. I sliced it down the center lengthwise. Cut slits in the tenderloin and insert garlic cloves into the meat.
  • 2Combine all marinade ingredients and place tenderloin in a large zip lock bag with marinade. Let set three hours or overnight.
  • 3Bake, uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 45 minutes until no longer pink in the middle.
  • 4Combine all ingredients for glaze and spoon over cooked tenderloin. Return to oven for 10 minutes.
  • 5I like this recipe served with garlic smashed potatoes and brussels sprouts or broccoli.
