Bourbon Pork Tenderloin

(3 Votes)
30 Min

Our Bourbon Pork Tenderloin is just the thing to shake up your dinnertime repertoire. Of course, the pork tenderloin is melt-in-your-mouth tender and the lightly sweetened glaze offsets the tang of the bourbon in this exciting dish.

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon (see Notes)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 to 2 pounds pork tenderloin (2 tenderloins)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 7- x 11-inch baking dish with aluminum foil then coat with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, bourbon, water, and vanilla; mix well and set aside.
  3. Place pork tenderloin in baking dish; season with salt and pepper. Spoon half of sugar mixture over pork and baker 25 minutes.
  4. Remove tenderloin from oven and spoon remaining sugar mixture over it. Bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes for medium, or until desired doneness.
  5. Cut into 3/4-inch slices and serve with sauce from pan.


  • If you prefer, you can substitute apple cider for the bourbon.
  • Lining the pan with aluminum foil makes cleanup really easy.

WHy cant I print the receipt

I have Mr. Food's Meat Around the Table and have been making this recipe for many years. I don't have bourbon so I use rum. My husband loves this dish and eats more than his share. It is a totally different flavor and we love it. Give it a try.

I did not like this at all. The only thing I could taste was the vanilla extract. sorry to say I won't make this again.
