2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons ground coriander
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
3 (1-pound) pork tenderloins, trimmed
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup orange juice
1/3 cup water
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
6 ounces commercial guava paste
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeño pepper, minced
Cooking spray


Prepare grill.

Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle pork with 2 teaspoons salt, and rub pork with the garlic powder mixture.

Combine onion and remaining ingredients except cooking spray in a small saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil. Cook 4 minutes or until guava paste dissolves, stirring constantly. Reduce heat, and simmer 4 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

Place pork on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 20 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160° (slightly pink), turning pork occasionally. Brush guava mixture over pork. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing into 1/2-inch-thick slices.
