Grilled Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Pork tenderloins are coated in a smoky and sweet rub, then grilled to perfection for an easy dinner any day of the week. 

Sunday Supper is a simple concept..."eat a great meal around the table with your family".  

This is a concept that is near and dear to my heart.  A concept I have always believed in and practiced in my own family and even now that two of my kids are gone away to college, I still practice daily with my youngest son.  But it is more than just about the is about families spending quality time together.  It is about making a commitment to one another. It is about positive communication.

During the month of September, I will be joining Allrecipes in celebrating #Sunday Supper.

Allrecipes has put together a recipe collection that is perfect for sharing Sunday Supper with your family.  Healthy, tasty meals that everyone will enjoy.

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin is one of those recipes in the collection.  It's wonderful.  I only made a few changes to the original recipe.  I cut the chili powder called for in half and I didn't put the tenderloins in the refrigerator once they were coated in the rub so that they could come closer to room temperature before grilling to make for a more even cooking. If you scroll through the pictures for this recipe on AR, you might even spot the one above, which was my contribution to the gallery!

Chipotle Chile Pepper gives this grilled pork tenderloin a kick and it's so easy to make.

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. In small bowl, combine the onion powder, garlic powder, chipotle chile powder, salt, and brown sugar. Rub into pork tenderloins, coating meat evenly. Let sit at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Brush tenderloins with oil and place on hot grill. Cook for 20 minutes, turning meat every 5 minutes until the internal temperature is 145 degrees F. Remove from grill, cover lightly with aluminum foil and let stand for at least 3 to 5 minutes before slicing.
