  • 1 pork tenderloin
  • ½ cup diced onions
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ½ cup bourbon
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon gingerroot peeled and minced
  • 4 cloves of garlic minced
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • cups water
  • cooking spray


  1. Combine the diced onion, lemon juice, bourbon, honey, soy sauce, gingerroot, minced garlic and 2 Tablespoons of olive oil in a large zippered bag. Add pork tenderloin and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  3. Once the pork has marinated, heat remaining 2 Tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet.
  4. Remove the pork from the bag, reserving the marinade, and season the tenderloin with salt and pepper.
  5. Sear pork in the skillet for a minute or two on each side, until lightly browned,
  6. Transfer to a baking dish coated with cooking spray. Pour a ½ cup of marinade over the pork.
  7. Cover with foil and roast for 20 to 35 minutes, until a meat thermometer registers 145 degrees to 160 degrees. Baste occasionally with pan juices while roasting.
  8. Remove pork from oven and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Keep warm.
  9. Prepare the gravy by combining flour and reserved marinade in a sauce pan, whisking to combine. Gradually add the water and bring to a boil over medium heat for about 3 minutes, whisking constantly, until thickened.
