Island Spiced Pork Tenderloin

A recipe from last week that I am only now getting around to posting. I found this one at See other recipes at Annie's eats

2 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon

2 pork tenderloins
2 tbsp olive oil

½ cup packed dark brown sugar
2 finely minced garlic
1½ tsp Tabasco sauce

Preheat the oven to 350, combine the salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder and cinnamon in a small bowl. Stir together with a fork to blend. Pat the mixture over the pork tenderloins.

Heat the olive oil in an ovenproof 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Place the tenderloins in the skillet and brown on all sides, turning occasionally, about 4 minutes total. Remove from the heat, leaving the pork in the skillet.

Stir together the brown sugar, garlic and Tabasco in a small bowl until blended. Spread the mixture evenly over the tops of the tenderloins.

Place the skillet in the preheated oven and roast about 20 minutes, loosely tent the skillet with foil and let stand 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
