Preheat the oven to 400F. Season the pork with the salt and pepper. Heat the Olive oil in an ovenproof skillet over high heat and sear the pork on all sides. Place the skillet into the oven and roast the pork for 8 to 10 minutes. Let the meat rest for 5 minutes before cutting. Slicing on a diagonal, cut each tenderloin into 4 or 5 pieces. Serve with Bourbon Glaze and Braised Red Cabbage.

In a medium pot heat the oil over medium heat and add the shallots and garlic, cook until soft, but not browned. Add the brown sugar, balsamic, red wine, apple cider, green peppercorns, bay leaf, tomatoes, red peppers, parsley and Soy sauce. Simmer until reduced by 1/2. Strain the sauce and add the Bourbon. Serve warm over sliced pork tenderloin or chops. Yield: 2 cups
