Honey Cumin Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Pork tenderloin is becoming one of my favorite cuts of meat to make. It always comes out tender and flavorful, and it’s a cinch to make. Simply throw the pork in the marinade in the morning, then toss it on the grill when it’s time for dinner. Grill it until it is 160 degrees F, let it sit while you get the rest of dinner on the table, slice and serve. So easy, even your husband can do it!

The honey cumin marinade gives the tenderloin a nice sweet and spicy flavor. When you take a bite, you first taste the sweetness of the honey glaze, and then your mouth explodes with the kick of the cumin. The glaze caramelizes the pork beautifully. I served this with some cheesy smashed potatoes, and we ate the leftover pork on a sandwich for lunch the next day. It was such a big hit with my husband that he proclaimed me as “the best wife ever.” 😉

Honey Cumin Glazed Pork Tenderloin
Yields: About 4 servings

1 pork tenderloin, trimmed of fat and membrane
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
3 Tbsp honey
1 tsp lime zest
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp chile powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp kosher salt
3 Tbsp canola oil

For the glaze:
2 Tbsp honey, warmed
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp chile powder

Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a large ziploc bag.  Season pork with salt and pepper, and add to bag.  Massage marinade into pork through the bag, and refrigerate several hours, or overnight.

Heat grill to medium heat.  Remove pork from marinade, and brush both sides with honey glaze.  Grill until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat reads 160-165 degrees F, turning once. Remove from heat, cover with foil, and allow to rest 15 minutes before slicing.
