I made more marinade than this recipe called for so that i could make a gravy/sauce with it, as suggested by other reviewers. I made a couple changed to the marinade right from the get go.. just based on my taste. I used about 1/3c. gentleman jack whiskey (because that is what we had in the house) about 1/2c. soy sauce and threw in like 3 or 4 heaping tablespoons of brown sugar. Also, I put in 4 smashed garlic cloves. I marinaded for about 2 hours, put the marinade in a pot on top of the stove for the sauce then put the tenderloin in the oven for about 40 min. at 400 degrees..
For the sauce, I skimmed out the chunks of garlic cloves, then added about a tablespoon and a half of butter, and used a whisk to stir in flour until it was the consistancy I was looking for. I also added a bunch of water to dillute the taste.
Overall, the meat itself was great. Very tender and juicy. However, the whiskey taste was overpowering, especially after putting the sauce on top. I will probably try this again, but I will only put in a couple tablespoons of whiskey so it isn't so strong. Otherwise it was great!
