Thanks to our latest blogger’s choice recipe swap, I have a new pork tenderloin recipe for our rotation! We really loved it…many thanks to Ashley from Cheese Curd in Paradise.
It was pouring out and I didn’t feel like busting out my Griddler, so I chose to cook it on the stove. It was great! You could also sear it first then throw it in the oven if you wanted to.
The flavors in this rub were fantastic. And rubbing the pork with oil and HOT SAUCE? Genius!
Thanks for a great dish, Ashley!
Island Spice Pork Tenderloin
slightly adapted from Cheese Curd in Paradise
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 (approximately one pound) pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons hot sauce
Combine first 7 ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside. Mix oil and hot sauce in a small dish. Brush pork with oil mixture, then rub with spices.
Heat skillet over medium high heat. Add pork and cook on each side (figuring it has 4 sides) for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat if pan becomes too smokey. After removing from stove, let rest for 5 minutes before cutting.
