Whiskey Caramel Pork Tenderloin

Don’t just limit your caramel to ice cream of coffee. Below is an incredible Pork Tenderloin with a caramel glaze This recipe works excellent for a pork tenderloin or (because our farmer friends run out quickly) pork chops.

We don’t have a ton of prep time when we’re in the middle of our busy farm season, so I let the caramel do the work. This recipe is quick, easy, and friggin’ delicious. Crispy on the outside, juicy and tender on the inside, it’s guaranteed to please!

PREP TIME 10 MINUTES

COOK TIME 30 MINUTES

TOTAL TIME 40 MINUTES

SERVINGS 4

Ingredients

  • 1 or 2 1/2 pound pork tenderloins or pork chops

  • 1 tablespoon oil

  • 1-2 cloves minced or pressed garlic

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1-2 tbsp Goat Milk Caramel

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and lightly grease a large baking pan or casserole dish. Pierce tenderloins all over with a fork. Rub oil onto all sides of the meat.

  2. Rub salt & pepper over the tenderloin, patting it onto the surface of the meat on all sides. Then either pierce the tenderloin and insert minced cloves throughout or rub pressed garlic over the tenderloin (I use this press). Place in prepared baking dish and drizzle caramel sauce over the top.

  3. Bake for 25-35 minutes until outside is browned and crispy and centers are cooked through to desired doneness (you can take them out on the early side if you like the centers a little pink).

  4. Spoon juices from the dish over the meat. Allow to rest on a cutting board or in the baking dish for 5-10 minutes. Slice into 1 inch pieces. Spoon any remaining juices from the pan over the slices, garnish with fresh chopped cilantro if desired, and serve.

Recipe Notes

This recipe is pretty flexible and you can use 1-2 very small pork tenderloins, or one medium-large pork tenderloin OR you can double or even triple the ingredients for the seasonings and serve a LOT of people with very large tenderloins.

Well, it’s finally Friday…which doesn’t mean all it used to before having a kid and morning chores that don’t change, regardless of the day. However, Fridays must still mean something, and they do, so we’re mixing it up with a few cocktails that are uhmazing! The nature of caramel pairs well with anything milky or apple cider-ish. Here are some fun options, let us know what you think!

I’m not sure it gets easier than this or more friggin delicious. I might have to go to the dentist after this week challenge of caramel recipes, but it’s worth it. I’d also like to note that I am a mom of a 2 1/2 year old and manage our farm with milking goats, 13 goats total, over 50 birds and 11.5 acre property..not to mention all of our trees are shedding their leaves and someone’s gotta take care of that. I say this to help convince you that, yes, these recipes are seriously easy and there is so much you can do to jazz up your life with a little bit of our caramel.
