Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl stir together the salt, black pepper, cumin, chili powder and cinnamon.
  2. Using clean hands rub the spice mixture over the pork to coat well.
  3. Heat a large heavy oven-proof skillet with oil over medium-high heat until very hot.
  4. Add in tenderloins (if you have a large enough skillet to brown both at the same time).
  5. Brown the pork on all sides then leave in the skillet.
  6. Set oven to 350 degrees F.
  7. To make the glaze: Stir together brown sugar, garlic and Tabasco; pat onto the top of each tenderloin.
  8. Roast in the middle of the oven for about 20-22 minutes, or until a thermometer registers 140°F.
  9. Let sit in the skillet for 10 minutes at room temperature (the temperature of the pork will rise to about 155F while standing for the 10 minutes).
  10. Remove to a board and slice.
  11. Delicious!

Very good! I was looking for something a little different, and this definitely fit the bill! My husband RAVED about it, my brother-in-law asks for it almost everytime he comes to dinner, and I have since made it 4 other times, each with rave reviews and NO leftovers! Quite a compliment! I didn't know if my skillet could survive in the oven, so I preheated a 9x13 pan in the oven while I was browning the tenderloins and then transfered the pork and sauce to that dish for baking. Turned out great!

This is really good. It was a little too sweet for me but overall wonderful. Kittencal I must say...I always love your recipes and love to go searching through yours. Thanks so much!

This is fantastic. The glaze makes a great sauce and it seems like the pork absorbed a lot of it while it was in the oven and kept it moist. I used one gigantic roast and it took around 45 minutes to cook thoroughly. Nice spice!
