Chipotle Crusted Pork Loin



I just have to share this recipe because it was soooooooooo gooooooood!  This recipe was heavenly!
I got it from AllRecipes, one of my favorite sites.  I took into account some of the comments and it turned out fantastic.
I must mention that the original recipe called for 3Tbsp of chipotle chile powder!!!!!  I cut it back to 1 tsp and it was good for those who like flavor but not hot.  I would add 2 tsp if you like it hot.  If you are just a fire lover than go ahead and try all 3 Tbsps!


Ingredients

Pineapple juice
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chipotle chile powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 5 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 (3/4 pound) pork tenderloins

Directions

  1. Place tenderloins in a glass dish and pour enough pineapple juice over the top to cover the meat.  Let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.  
  2. Combine onion powder, garlic powder, chipotle chile powder, salt, and brown sugar.  Coat meat evenly and let sit for 20 minutes. Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  4. Lightly oil grill grate, and arrange meat on grate. Cook for 20 minutes, turning meat every 5 minutes. Remove from grill, let stand for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.


Cook's note:  You can cook this in the oven at 350˚F  for about 40-60 minutes.  Make sure the internal temperature is between 155-160˚F before serving.
