Grilled Bourbon Pork Medallions



If you follow us on Facebook, you'd know that the two magical moms are getting together this week for Spring Break! I (Sherrie) am taking my girls on the train from Cincinnati to Northern Virginia to stay with the Lewis's for the week. We've already been to Mount Vernon and then Tracy and I came up with a few new recipe ideas we wanted to try and hit the grocery store! Although it is Spring Break, it is still pretty cold here. But today looked like the nicest day weather-wise, and as we were driving home from Mount Vernon it was quite sunny. So we figured today would be a great day to try something new on the grill.

We've already featured an amazing steak recipe, so we figured we'd do pork medallions. And we got our inspiration for the marinade from the drinks Tracy and I have been drinking since last night!

Ingredients:
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup worchestershire
  • 2 tablespoon bourbon
  • 1/2 teaspoon rosemary
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2-2 1/2 lbs of pork tenderloin
In a bowl whisk together all ingredients except pork.
Cut the pork into inch and a half thick medallions.   Place pork in zip lock bag and pour marinade over. Marinate for at least 30 minutes. Cook on the grill about 5 minutes each side or until meat is thoroughly cooked.

We served this with Rosemary Chive Grilled Potatoes and Green Waldorf Salad with Honey Yogurt Dressing.
