Spice Encrusted Pork

There are so many great ways to cook pork tenderloin!  It’s great in the crockpot, good on the grill, perfect for stir fry and pasta, and excellent with a spice rub.  This spice rub is the most recent way I served pork tenderloin, and it was delicious!  The key is to sear the meat in a hot skillet first, then bake the pork until cooked through in the oven.  You can chop up the leftovers to be used in BBQ sandwiches, enchiladas, or freeze for later.
