Spice Rubbed Pork Tenderloin


A whole lot of flavor with a little kick of spice. This one is a winner.  I served it with brussels sprouts roasted in duck fat and an apple potato hash.

Spice Rubbed Pork Tenderloin (serves 2-3)

  •  1, 1-1.5 lb pork tenderloin 
  • 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
  1. Combine all ingredients (excluding pork) in a bowl, this is the spice rub!
  2. Coat pork in spice rub and let sit at room temp for about 1 hr.
  3. Sear pork on all sides in a hot pan.
  4. Transfer pork to a roasting pan.
  5. Roast at 400 F for 15-20 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and let sit for 10-15 minutes before serving.
