I have finally decided to cook. Not only is Joe happy about this decision-but I am finding great satisfaction from this decision as well. I've tried a few things- but last night I tried the following recipe and it was awesome!

Pork Tenderloin in Bourbon

1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup bourbon
2 tablespoons brown sugar ( I added another two and did a dry rub first! )
2 cloves garlic, halved ( I used about 4 )
3 pounds pork tenderloin ( Mine was 2.7 )

Mix together soy sauce, bourbon, brown sugar, and garlic. Pour over pork, cover, and refrigerate at least 2 hours, turning occasionally.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Remove pork from marinade, and place on rack of shallow roasting pan.
Bake for 45 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 160 degrees F/71 degrees C.

The only thing I added is when I removed the marinade I put it in a small "simmering" pot on the stove. I removed the garlic from the marinade. When there was ten minutes left for my tenderloin, I added about 4 tablespoons of brown sugar and reduced the marinade to a glaze ( Joe helped me a little on this one...)

We served with asparagus and it was YUMMY.
