This lean pork tenderloin gains lots of flavor from its spice rub and its side of Avocado-Pineapple Salsa.


  • 2 tablespoons light-brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 pork tenderloins (about 12 ounces each)

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • Avocado-Pineapple Salsa


  1. To create Spice Rub: In a small bowl, combine light-brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, cumin, allspice, and ground pepper.

  2. Heat broiler, with rack 4 inches from heat source. Line a broilerproof rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place pork on pan; rub all over with oil, and coat evenly with spice rub.

  3. Broil, turning occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into pork registers 150 degrees, 15 to 20 minutes.

  4. Wrap loosely with foil in pan; let rest 5 to 10 minutes before slicing thinly. Serve with the salsa.
