Island Pork Tenderloin

Island Pork Tenderloin
from Michelle Tucker

2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 pork tenderloins (2-2.5 lbs. They usually come 2 to a bag)
2 TBSP olive oil
1 cup packed dark brown sugar (this is different than regular brown sugar)
2 TBSP finely chopped garlic
1 TBSP Tabasco sauce

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Make spice rub with first 5 ingredients and rub allover pork.
3. Heat oil in pan and brown pork.
4. Put sugar, garlic, and Tobasco in bowl and pat into pork. Put pan straight into oven (I transferred it to a glass pyrex dish) and roast for 30 minutes.
5. Let stand for 10 minutes and cut and serve. (You can pour the extra juice over the cut meat.)

*I cut this in half, only using one pork tenderloin. I served it with Michelle's coconut rice.
