      I prepared the entire amount of "rub" for just one tenderloin (using 1/2 tsp cayenne 'cuz we like spicy), and this gave it a very nicely seasoned crust. It is a flavorful roast, but in my opinion despite the fact that I only cooked it to 150°, I found it somewhat dry. My husband, however, gave highest marks and requested that I prepare it again soon. He liked the way the spicy flavor built up in your mouth the more we ate it.

      I really loved this. The flavour was great and the meat was tender. It's not what i think of when i think of "escabeche" (which I've eaten in Mexico a few times, different meats but always cooked/served in plenty of thin flavourful sauce)... but it's equally delicious. I used a meat thermometer to ensure the meat reached 155 (probably closer to 160). The meat was still a little pinkish and very juicy, which was a bit alarming (I've grown up on overcooked pork and am not used to seeing it served medium-rare). But wow, what goodness! I might cook it a little longer next time, to make sure the pink colour is gone, just because that's what i'm used to. The seasoning rub i made exactly per the recipe, and will say again, it is really delicious.
