This tender, juicy whiskey glazed pork tenderloin is rubbed with a blend of spices, roasted until perfect, then finished with a delicious whisky glaze.
It elevates a run of the mill pork tenderloin to fabulous.
No crazy ingredients (unless you count Whisky as crazy).
With a little planning, this could be done on a weeknight fairly easily.
Mix the rub ingredients in a bowl, then spread on the pork on all sides, and rub it into the meat. Let sit in the fridge for a few hours.
Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add the garlic and cook for a minute, then add the whisky, and the rest of the glaze ingredients
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a fast simmer – whisking. Reduce to a thick syrup. Remove from the heat and season to taste.
Preheat the oven to 350F. Add the pork in a large roasting dish, and cook 40-45mins. A digital thermometer should read 145 degrees F.
During the last 5 minutes, baste the pork with some of the glaze. Remove to a cutting board, and rest 5 minutes.
Slice, and serve with the glaze.
