Town Branch Bourbon-Q Sauce for Pork Tenderloin

Town Branch Bourbon-Q Sauce for Pork Tenderloin


1/3 cup Town Branch Bourbon
1/3 cup of water
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
1 ½ pounds pork tenderloin
¼ cup sorghum molasses
¼ cup ketchup
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil


Combine the Bourbon, water, vinegar, ginger, jalapeno, and garlic in a bowl. Add the pork tenderloin, and garlic in a bowl. Add pork tenderloin and turn it to coat. Marinate the pork at room temperature for 1 hour, turning it every 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove the pork from the marinade and pour the marinade into a small saucepan. Boil it over high heat until it is reduced by one-third. Add the sorghum and ketchup and cook until thickened or about 20 minutes. Season with the kosher salt and pepper.

Brush the pork with the olive oil and sprinkle it with salt and pepper. Grill it over medium heat until the outside of the meat is well marked. Transfer the pork to a pan and place it in the over at 350 degrees until it reaches an internal temperature of 155 degrees, about 30 minutes. Remove the pork from the oven and allow it to slice it against the grain and serve it with the sauce made from the marinade.
