Marinades are meant to enhance the flavor of meats and vegetables, not cover them up. Even though you may be tempted, don't marinate the pork longer than 6 hours or you'll overpower the wonderful flavor of the pork.

  • 2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 6 Tbsp. lite soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. freshly cracked black pepper
  • Vegetable cooking spray

Step by Step:

  1. Remove silver skin from tenderloin, leaving a thin layer of fat covering the tenderloin.
  2. Whisk together soy sauce and remaining ingredients in a shallow dish or bowl. Add pork and turn to coat in marinade. Cover and refrigerate up to 6 hours.
  3. Remove pork from marinade, discarding marinade. Allow pork to rest at room temperature 30 minutes before cooking.
  4. Heat charcoal, gas or indoor grill to medium-high heat. Pat pork dry and lightly spray with vegetable cooking spray. Place on grill and cook, 8 to 10 minutes per side or until thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 155°F. Remove from grill and allow to rest, uncovered, for 10 minutes before slicing.
