Chili-rubbed Girlled Pork Tenderloin


This is an easy one that we did tonight.  It was quick and yummy, as you know- two of my favorite things in a recipe!  The recipe is from the May 13-15,2011 USA Weekend Magazine.

Chili-rubbed Grilled Pork Tenderloin

In a small bowl, combine:

  • 2 tsp ancho chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • two pinches of cayenne pepper

Rub the spice mixture all over

  • 2 pork tenderloins (each about 1 pound, so around 2 pounds of meat)

Allow the pork tenderloins to come to room temperature

Place the pork on a preheated grill.

Turn the meat once or twice while cooking until a meat thermometer inserted in to the thickest part reads 155 degrees (probably around 15-20 minutes)

Remove from the heat and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
