Spiced-Rubbed Pork Tenderloin w/ BBQ Sauce

Tenderloin

1 Tbs. Sugar
1 Tbs. Chili Powder
2 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Mustard Powder
1/4 tsp. Dried Thyme
2 (1-pound) Pork Tenderloins

In a small bowl combine sugar, chili powder, salt, mustard powder, and thyme. Rub mixture on the tenderloins, coating all sides. Shake off any loose spices. Place meat in a baking dish. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours. Meanwhile, make the BBQ Sauce. Once done refrigerating set meat on a hot grill, searing it on all sides (about 1 minute each side). Place back in baking dish, cover with aluminum foil, and bake at 350 degrees for 1-2 hours.

Sauce:

1 c. Hickory BBQ Sauce
3/4 c. Ketchup
1/3 c. Orange Juice
1 Tbs. Soy Sauce
1 tsp. Hot Sauce

In a medium saucepan mix sauce ingredients and bring to a simmer. Cook over medium-low , stirring occasionally for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

*I got this recipe out of a magazine and fell in love with it. If you don't feel like making the sauce, that's fine because it tastes great with out it too.
