Pork Recipes, Pork Tenderloin

This was a recipe that came to me when the apples began ripening on my trees in the back yard. We have three amazing and tolerant trees for our Northern temperature, each with its own very unique flavor. My earliest one was so flavorful, so plentiful and makes amazing apple sauce and baking each year. Spicebox Whiskey is such a smooth and tasty whiskey with its unique use of vanilla and spice, it is just a natural with this to help bring out the flavors in this recipe.

You will need:

  • 2 – 4 nice (dependant on size) Pork Tenderloins with outer tendons removed (be gentle)
  • One to two Grilling Stones (depending on the size of the loins)
  • Gentle tongs for turning Sauce
  • 1/2 c. apples (flesh only please, cooked up in the microwave like an applesauce & cooled)
  • 6 ounces Spicebox Whisky
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar (my favorite is always Demerara as it is rich and flavorful)
  • 2 tsp. tarragon
  • 4 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. black pepper  


Mix up the ingredients for the sauce until the sugar is totally dissolved. Place the tenderloins in a zip lock bag for 2-3 hours or for intense flavour overnight.

Heat up your Brazilian Fire and Ice Grilling Stones to 450 F on the stones, turning as they brown on each side, approximately 3-4 min each. Once they are browned, begin basting generously with the bagged sauce until the meat thermometer reaches 71°C (160°F). Enjoy!

I'm a lover of grilling, wife to an awesome man, mom, to five amazing children, three human, two non human (puppies), Nan of two extremely sweet grandkids and some cool fish. I had my first business at the age of nine. My first "Official business" at the age of 21 in a Saskatchewan market. The youngest President of the Chamber of Commerce in our community, my love of business grew. I've worked for small business and large conglomerates since moving to Edmonton, yet my favorite is certainly this: introducing people to using soapstone for grilling and chilling. It has such incredible properties including being bacterial resistant, heating and chilling quickly, searing food to enhance their amazing flavors, easy to clean food safe and used by our ancestors, it's almost like reversing time. Our family handcrafts wonderful soapstone grilling and chilling products for everyone to enjoy healthy grilling and chilling.
