DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl, combine rub ingredients.
  • Using your hands or a spoon, rub mixture evenly over pork, set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees or preheat grill on medium-high.
  • For mop sauce, heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, swirling to coat.
  • Saute onion for 2 to 3 minutes, or until translucent, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in remaining sauce ingredients.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • (You may wish to reserve 1/2 cup sauce to use as a dipping sauce for cooked pork.) Lightly spray a broiling pan and rack with vegetable oil spray.
  • Put tenderloins on rack in pan.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Using a pastry brush or basting mop (a small dishwashing mop can be used, new and clean, of course), baste on all sides.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then baste again.
  • Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until pork is no longer pink in the center or registers 165 degrees on meat thermometer.
  • Or grill tenderloins for 10 minutes per side (40 minutes total), then baste with mop sauce and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until pork is cooked through.
