I think I originally got this recipe from Everyday Food years ago, although I can’t find it anywhere. I like pork loin because it’s small, and when you cook it you can slice it into little individual boneless medallions. Perfect for kids. The spices in this combo smell and taste wonderful. You can kick it up and add cayenne if you like it super spicy, but that’s not me.
1 pork tenderloin
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp allspice
Set your oven to broil. Line a baking sheet with nonstick foil. Put the tenderloin on the pan, and rub with olive oil.
In a small bowl combine all the spices to make a dry rub and rub onto the pork.
Place in the middle top of your oven. Cook for around 20-25 minutes, turning regularly. Broil is high, but don’t worry. Watch it now, the sugar in this will BURN like a mutha. It’s ok, it’ll still taste good, just warning you.
You can use a meat thermometer to check the center, it should be about 150 degrees. Take it out of the ovem cover with foil, and let the meat rest for 10 minutes. Slice and serve.
