The spice rub and glaze would also work well with chicken.

Ingredients

  • 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

Preparation

  1. Prepare grill.
  2. Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle pork with 2 teaspoons salt, and rub pork with the garlic powder mixture.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
