Whiskey Marinaded Pork Tenderloin

This recipe is good for making about 2-3 pork tenderloins, trimmed up and poked with fork. Mixed together the marinade ingredients and let meat soak it all up overnight in a covered container in the fridge.

For the marinade:

1/4 cup whisky
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/8 cup honey
1/8 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons grainy dijon mustard
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt

For glazing:

1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1-2 tbsp olive oil
S and P to taste

We have a Jenn Air cooktop so we are blessed to be able to grill year round indoors, but I think you could easily do this recipe in the oven. Grill to your liking rotating and brushing with glaze as they cook. Let rest before slicing and serve. We made this yummy Quinoa with Green Onion and Pine Nuts to go along side paired with some ginger glazed carrots.
