Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients



    • 2 whole pork tenderloins (about - 1 1/2 lbs. total) or 6 pork chops

    • 4 teaspoons chili powder

    • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano

    • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin

    • 1/8 teaspoon dried garlic powder


Directions

1. Mix together chili powder, oregano, cumin, and garlic powder. Rub over the surface of pork. Cover and refrigerate 2-24 hours.



2. Grill over medium hot coals, or broil. Turn occasionally. Tenderloins will take 25-20 minutes, pork chops will be ready in 10-15 minutes. Meat thermometer should read 155-160 F. Pork is done when there is still a hint of pink in the center.



Makes 6 servings (approx 4 oz.)

    I used 4 cloves of fresh garlic instead of the garlic powder and added black pepper to the mix. It was excellent. I baked in the oven for 30 minutes on 400 and then broiled it to crisp the outside. 4 oz. is a lot of meat for me and I feel totally satiated. - 4/26/07

    Easy and wonderful. I added kosher salt, and it was moist and tender. Don't forget to let it rest for about 10 to 15 min. before slicing to keep the juices intact. - 4/13/09

    This is AWESOME! I didn't have any oregano, so I substutited thyme and rosemary, then served it with yellow rice mixed with tomatoes and black beans! It was awesome that it stayed moist, even for leftovers! - 4/21/08

    This is a super simple recipe and it tastes sooooo good. I actually tried it on some steak it turned out fabulous. It is a little on the spicy side for me but it had a lot of flavor. Hmm hmmm good! - 11/22/08

    I've never BBQ a tenderloin before but this worked well. My husband loved it. Nice to have a marinate that isn't salty. Moist and flavourful. - 5/26/08

    This was good, but I think it needs a little something more...rub spices are great though. We grilled for 25 min., only needed 20. Will make again, especially with Southwestern Succotash from this site, great side dish! - 3/25/07

    Delicious. This is one recipe I saved and lots of people have asked me for it. The tenderloin is soo juicy and the rub is delicious. I didn't have chili powder once and used old bay instead. The dish is easy to make and certainly a crowd pleaser. Even my two boys like it. I make it all the time. - 8/10/09

    I didnt have pork chops, so I used Belly Spare Ribs. Also I do not like quite as much Chilly, so I took only 2 tsp of chilly and added a bit of black pepper.
    It was soooooo Yummmmy! - 6/14/09

    It was tender but lacked full flavour. I guess I'm used to bolder spices. - 10/6/08

    This was very good. I only had 1.5 tsp. of chili powder so used 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper and it worked out quite well. I used thin cut pork chops, approx. 2 oz ea. - 4/13/08
