Apple-Glazed Pork Tenderloin

What a wonderful way to prepare pork for company! This simple but elegant Apple-Glazed Pork Tenderloin has a wonderful flavor. It can be left to marinate overnight, then slipped in the oven when the guests walk in the door. They’ll love it!

Yield: 6 to 8 servings


  • 2 whole pork tenderloins (each about 3/4 pound)
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 1/2 cup unfiltered apple cider
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon


Place the pork tenderloins in a glass baking dish. Mix the remaining ingredients and pour over the tenderloins. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 8 hours or more, turning the meat several times. (If you need more marinade, add 1/4 cup more cider.)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Place the baking dish with the meat and marinade in the oven and bake for 1-1/4 hours or until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 160 degrees F (medium well) to 170 degrees F (well-done). While the meat bakes, baste with the marinade every 10 or 15 minutes. Let stand for 10 to 15 minutes before carving.

    This recipe is easy and the taste is very different. I have made one of my favorites to serve almost anyone who enjoys good food. I have done it for a year-round item. I just made 20 lbs of it for a graduation and it was cooked on the grill for about 20-25 min. I have also baked it like it suggested in the recipe. You can’t make a mistake. My suggestion for marinating is to do it for 24 hrs to retain flavor more. If you do grill it, rub it with a little olive oil before putting on the grill. Good Luck! I love New England cooking! Even in Wisconsin!
