Honey Chipotle Pork Tenderloin


I actually found this recipe on about.com, not sure how I ended up there but I'm glad I did.  This was a simple pork tenderloin recipe and it came out great.  The best part was I already had all the ingredients in the house.  Quick an Easy - Enjoy!!

What you need (for 2 tenderloins ):
3 tablespoons of honey
2 chipotle chilies in adobo and a bit of the adobo sauce
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 garlic clove, minced
2 pork tenderloins
1 -2 tablespoons of olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper


What you do:
Heat oven to 350.   Combine the honey, chipotles, adobo, cilantro and garlic and set aside.  Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Trim fat from tenderloins and season with salt, pepper, cumin and chili powder. Sear in olive oil browning all the sides.  Transfer to a lightly oiled baking pan (or leave in skillet if it's oven proof.)   Roast for about 15 minutes and brush with the chipotle mixture. Continue roasting fro another 15 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
