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.

    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
