Description

Channel your inner masseuse for this recipe. Massage this rub onto your pork tenderloin prior to grilling and you won’t be sorry. A great combination of seasonings with just a hint of heat makes for a tasty, moist and very satisfying result.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Seasoning Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Poultry Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Chili Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 whole 1 Lb. Pork Tenderloins

Preparation

Combine all the seasonings well.

Rub the mixture evenly onto the 2 tenderloins.

Place the tenderloins in a glass baking dish, cover with saran wrap and place in the refrigerator for 30 min. to an hour.

Let the tenderloins come to room temperature then place on preheated grill over med. heat.

These take approx. 25 min. Please don’t overcook – I suggest using a meat thermometer. Let stand 5 min. before slicing.

I love this spice mix! we call it Cajun seasoning and use it on everything! At our house we love Cajun turkey deli meat. The problem with it is it cost $9 a pound. we have found that if you buy a turkey breast and put this mix on it and let it set for about 24 hours then bake it the turkey taste so much better than the $9 a pound stuff and it is half the price!!!!!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! The Malone Family

I’ve used this rub no less than 6 times in the month since I’ve found this recipe. My husband just got a smoker and we’ve used this rub for smoked pork butt roasts with amazing results. This rub is my go to when I have any kind of pork to serve. Thank you!

Made this earlier this week, and I’ve been using it on everything! Everyone in the family loves it! I make it as posted for general use, but have a second container that I season more heavily with ground chipotle pepper and cayenne to use for “my boys”….they love it!!!
