You Need:

Pork Tenderloin 3 pounds (3 pieces 1 pound each)
Water 1 cup
Soy Sauce 1 cup
Black Pepper 1 tsp.
Dry Mustard 1 tbsp.
Garlic Powder 2 tbsp.
Bourbon 1/4 cup
Honey 6 tbsp.

For the Mustard Sauce:

Sour Cream 2/3 cup
Mayonnaise 2/3 cup
Dry Mustard 2 tbsp.
White Wine Vinegar 2 tbsp.
Horseradish Sauce 2 tbsp.
Dijon Mustard with White Wine 2 tbsp.
Chopped Green Onions 2 tbsp.


The Marinade:

Combine all the ingredients -the bourbon, soy sauce, honey, dry mustard and black pepper in a glass mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Pour into a large zip lock bag. Add the tenderloins and seal. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours while turning the meat occasionally. You can also place it in a large glass container but never in metal.

While the meat is marinating prepare the Mustad sauce. Combine all ingredients and blend well. Put in the fridge until ready to use.

Preheat the oven to 425 F. Place meat in roasted oven bag , seal and pear several times with a fork so that steam can escape during the cooking process. Don’t throw away the marinate. We will simmer that down to make the bourbon sauce that will glaze the pork. Bake for 40 -45 minutes. Check if the meat is done by using a thermometer until it reaches 150-155 F. Don’t forget that the meat is still cooking after a few minutes after you remove it from the oven.

While the meat is cooking lets make the bourbon glaze sauce. In a medium size sauce pan or pot pour the leftover marinated and add 1 1/2 cup beef or chicken stock. Reduce down for 8-10 minutes on low temperature. After the sauce is reduced whisk a 2 tsp. corn starch and 2 tsp. water to make a slurry. Add the slurry to the sauce to thicken and to give it a nice and glossy finish.

Let the Meat rest for a few minutes. Carve meat into thin slices. Serve with the mustard sauce, which may be cold or at room temperature. Drizzle some of the bourbon glaze over the meat and serve with your favorite side dish. I like to serve it with Spinach Au Gratin and Sweet Potatoes.

You can pair this dish with Australian Shiraz.
