Pork Tenderloin with Brown Sugar Glaze2 Comments

Happy Friday!! Talk about the longest week back to work ever. I am so thankful that the weekend is almost here. It didn’t help that both hubby and I were sick pretty much all week. My motivation was almost at zero this week and I cooked many easy meals, nothing exciting to share! I decided to pick up this pork tenderloin, but wanted to do something new. Usually I just roast, but I wanted to try a sweet and spicy combination. This recipe hit the spot, it gave the pork a little kick with a little hint of sweetness. Definitely worth a try if you like pork tenderloin!

What you’ll need:
For the rub:
1 pork tenderloin
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4-1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 -3 tablespoons olive oil

For the glaze:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (or adjust to suit heat level)

What you’ll do:
In a small bowl stir together the salt, black pepper, cumin, chili powder and cinnamon. Using clean hands rub the spice mixture over the pork to coat well. Heat a large heavy oven-proof skillet with oil over medium-high heat until very hot. Add in tenderloin, brown pork on all sides. Transfer to a baking dish or leave in oven safe skillet. Set oven to 350 degrees. To make the glaze: Stir together brown sugar, garlic and Tabasco; pat onto the top of tenderloin. Roast in the middle of the oven for about 20-22 minutes, or until a thermometer registers 140°F. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
