2 pork tenderloins, (1 lb. each), trimmed
Cajun Rub, (recipe below)
Bourbon-Mustard Glaze, (recipe below)
2 tsb.'s salt
1 tbs. cayenne pepper
1 tbs. black pepper
2 tbs.'s smoky paprika
2 tbs.'s garlic powder
2 tbs.'s onion powder
1 tbs. dried parsley
1 tbs. dried thyme
Combine all in food processor and pulse until well blended. Store any remaining rub in an airtight container.
1/4 cup bourbon
1/8 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup cane syrup
2 tbs.'s chipotle sauce
1/4 cup Creole mustard
Few shakes Tabasco
Place all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Wash the pork tenderloins and pat dry. Rub them generously with the Cajun rub.
Preheat the grill on medium high heat. Place on grill for a few minutes on high. Sear until grill marks appear on all sides of the pork. Blackening will enhance the flavor.
Turn the grill down to the lowest heat, or move to the side where they will only receive indirect heat. You want to set the grill to about 325 to 350°F. Cover the grill, and let the pork cook for about 30 minutes. Turn and baste with the bourbon-mustard glaze. Continue grilling for 15 minutes, turn and baste again, and continue grilling for 15 more minutes, for about an hour total.
Insert a meat thermometer and when the pork reaches 150°F*, take it off the grill. Remove to a platter and cover with foil and let rest about 15 minutes. Slice and serve with extra glaze.
Scrumptious! Serve with a big tossed salad and my Creamy Scalloped Potatoes w/ Bacon.
