Pork Loin with Bourbon Marinade

A very moist and tender loin, and oh so tasty!

                

Marinade–

¼ C soy sauce

¼ C bourbon

2 T brown sugar

2-3# pork tenderloin

Optional Mustard Sauce

1/3 C sour cream

1/3 C mayonnaise

1 T dry mustard

2-3 chopped green onions

 Mix first 3 ingredients and marinade your pork for several hours or overnight turning occasionally. I like to inject some of the marinade in each end and the middle when I first mix it up. I use a gallon plastic bag to marinade in that way I can work the meat with my hands.

A couple hours before you are ready to cook the loin set it out on the counter to come to room temperature. As with any meat it is better to bring it to room temperature before cooking, it keeps the meat from shrinking as much.

If cooking in your oven bake at 325 degrees until the meat temperature reaches 150 degrees. Baste occasionally. Remove from the oven, wrap tightly in aluminum foil and let it rest 30 minutes before slicing thin. Serve with the mustard sauce.

I cooked mine in our smoker for about 1 ½ hour until the internal temperature reached 150 degrees over hickory chips I had soaked 15 minutes and had water in the water pan. Removed and let it rest as I would if cooking in the oven.
