Weight Watchers Pork Tenderloin in Bourbon-Brown Sugar Recipe

WW: Pork Tenderloin in Bourbon-Brown Sugar


cup bourbon
cup dark brown sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce
bunch fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
cup lemon juice
1.5 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 cup water
teaspoon dried thyme
2 1 pound pork tenderloin or 4-6 pork chops


1. In a shallow glass casserole dish, combine the bourbon, brown sugar, soy sauce, cilantro, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, water, and thyme, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Add the pork, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator, turning occasionally, for 8 to 12 hours.
2. Preheat the oven to 450F.
3. Coat a baking sheet or the bottom of your roasting pan with tin foil, making sure the entire sheet is covered. This is very important, as the marinade tends to burn on and its a pain to wash.
4. For tenderloin: Place the tenderloins, side by side without touching, on a wire rack in a shallow roasting pan. For chops: Place pork chops on a baking sheet. Roast (bake) for 30 minutes, or until a meat thermometer registers 160F (pork chops usually take less time), basting occasionally with the marinade. Discard any unused marinade.

Serves 4-6;
