Sunday Dinner Pork Tenderloin
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp finely chopped garlic
1 tsp Tabasco sauce
2 pork tenderloins
2 tsp salt
1/4-1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cinnamon
2-3 Tbsp olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl combine brown sugar, garlic, and Tabasco. Set aside. In another bowl stir together the salt, black pepper, cumin, chili powder, and cinnamon. This is going to be your rub. Use your fingers to rub this mixture all over the tenderloins.
Heat a large heavy oven-proof skillet with oil over medium-high heat until very hot. Add in tenderloins (we cut each in half to fit our skillet) and brown them on all sides.
Leaving pork in skillet, pat the brown sugar mixture onto the top of the pork. Place in the middle of the oven and roast for about 20-22 minutes, until a thermometer registers 140 degrees. Remove from oven and let sit in skillet for 10 minutes (the temperature of the pork will rise to about 155 degrees while sitting in the hot skillet).
Remove from skillet, slice and serve!
