Why We Like It
The combination of spices such as cacao, smoked paprika and allspice create a phenomenal flavor-loaded rub for this roasted pork tenderloin. Delicious, juicy and a hit with the whole family!
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
Combine the Seasoning Rub:
Add to a small bowl and stir to combine.
Season the Pork:
Place the pork on a large plate or in a 9 inch x 13 inch baking dish. Rub the seasoning mixture all over the pork.
(If you have a cast iron skillet, or a skillet that can go from the stove to the oven, you can sear the pork in the same skillet that you roast it in. Or, you will transfer it from the skillet to the baking dish and then roast it.)
Sear the Pork:
Add oil to a large skillet over medium high heat. When the skillet is hot, add the pork and sear each side for about 3-4 minutes until browned.
Transfer the pork into the 9 inch x 13 inch greased baking dish, and then roast in the oven for 25-35 minutes or until cooked through and pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
Serve and Enjoy!
Let the pork rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.
