Peppered Pork Tenderloin

These spices add a nice flavor to this roast. If you shy away from spicy hot foods you may want to cut the cayenne pepper in half. This comes out of the oven very moist and tender if not over cooked. I always take it out when the meat thermometer reads 155 degrees.

I liked the tenderloin, but it was way too hot for my husband. Definitely lower the amount of pepper if you at all in question as to whether it will be too hot or not.
