Grilled Brown Sugar Chili Pork Tenderloin

In my opinion, there can never be too many options for preparing pork tenderloin. It's one of my favorite cuts of meat, because it's tender, flavorful, and does well on the grill, in the oven, or in the crockpot.

This version employs a simple rub, with ingredients already in your spice cabinet, to liven up the meat before placing it on the grill. The result is a delicious, melt in your mouth entree! Any leftovers would be divine on a sandwich the next day, too! (We didn't have leftovers, unfortunately.) Pair this with some potatoes and a salad (or cauli and brussels!), and you have a wonderful meal that's quick and easy.

Grilled Brown Sugar Chili Pork Tenderloin

1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1 pork tenderloin

In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, brown sugar, smoked paprika, and ground cinnamon. Mix well.

Rinse and dry off the pork tenderloin. Rub half of seasoning mixture onto the top, then flip the pork tenderloin over and rub the rest onto the bottom of the pork. Place tenderloin on a grill heated to medium heat. Cook for 20 minutes, turning once after 10 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. (The internal temperature of pork should reach 155 degrees.) Slice and serve immediately. Serves 3.
