I followed the recipe until it said to discard the marinade. I put it in a small saucepan, removed the garlic & simmered it until it was reduced to syrup. When the tenderloin had 10 minutes of cooking time remaining, I glazed it with the reduced marinade. It gave it more flavor & a nice color.



I've made a recipe similar to this for years. I serve it to company all the time & it always gets RAVE reviews. There are a few changes I make: For one, I add a little more brown sugar to the marinade (I don't measure, I just throw it in). Next, it's best if you marinate it overnight (I do in a large ziplock bag). Then you MUST grill it (It tastes so much better this way). Finally, the best part: Serve it with the following sauce: Mustard Scallion Sauce: 1/2 C. sour cream, 1/2 Cup mayo, 1 Tbsp. dry mustard, 3 Tbsp chopped scallions, 1 1/2 Tbsp. white vinegar, and 1 1/2 tsp. sugar. (You may need to add more sugar and/or vinegar to adjust-I don't measure) Enjoy!



THIS WAS WONDERFUL!! I chose this one, and it was made exactly as the recipe directed. I wouldn't change a thing. I made enough for 8 servings, so I used 2 1.5lb tenderloins. I pricked each with a fork before marinating for maximum absorbtion. I doubled the cooking time, but cooked at 325 degrees. Meat was very flavorful, with barely a hint of bourbon. I thought the soy would be too salty, but it wasn't. The brown sugar helped temper the soy sauce. Wonderful recipe. A guaranteed "will make again".
