Tender, juicy pork tenderloin that has been marinated in savory, slightly sweet with a kick of heat Memphis style rub.
Serves: 6 servings
  • 1½lbs. pork tenderloin
  • Memphis Rub:
  • ¼ cup paprika
  • 2 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper (add more to make spicy)
  • 1½ tbsp. salt
  • 1½ tbsp. black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 tbsp. celery seeds
  • 2 tbsp.brown sugar
  • ½ tbsp. dried oregano
  • ½ tbsp. dried thyme
  • ½ tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 tsp. ground allspice
  1. In a bowl, add all of the Memphis Rub ingredients. Use about a quarter of the mixture and rub it all over your pork and refrigerate for up to two days. I did it for four hours.
  2. Preheat grill to medium low heat. Add pork to grill and cook for 7 minutes, rotate to the side and cook for 6 minutes, rotate and cook for 5 minutes. Make sure temperature registers to 160 degrees. Take pork off grill and let it rest for 10 minutes before cutting.
  3. Serve with a side of your favorite barbecue sauce if desired.
I didn't add the calories to the rub, because there are barely any.
