Easy Spiced Pork Tenderloin with Apricot Glaze
Recipe type: Direct heat
Serves: 4 to 6
  • For the rub:
  • 1 teaspoon yellow curry powder - I use S&B Oriental Curry Powder
  • ¾- to 1¼ teaspoons kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder - I use Gebhardt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  •  :
  • 1½ to 2 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • Olive oil for grilling
  •  :
  • For apricot glaze:
  • ½ cup apricot preserves
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  •  :
  • Grilled apricots, for serving (optional)
  1. Stir together the rub ingredients. Trim away the sliver skin from the tenderloin and place on a plate or small tray. Sprinkle over the rub making sure to cover the entire tenderloin(s); use all of the rub. You can grill the tenderloin at this point, but better if you let cure in covered in the refrigerator for a couple hours or as long as 1 to 2 days.
  2. Remove pork from the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature while prepping the grill. Give it a drizzle of olive oil to prevent any sticking on the grill.
  3. Set up and preheat grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat. Brush and oil grate when ready to start cooking. Place pork on the hot oiled grill. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side (four sides) for a total of 14 to 18 minutes or until internal temperature registers a minimum of 145˚F (medium rare) and up to 160˚F (medium).
  4. Brush liberally with the glaze on all sides allowing a few seconds on each side to caramelize the sugars on the grill.
  5. Remove tenderloin(s) from grill and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Meanwhile grill the apricots if you have them. Slice the tenderloin, across the grain at a slant transfer to a serving platter and pour over any remaining glaze. Add the grilled apricots or other stone fruits to the platter and serve.
