Spice-Rubbed Pork Tenderloin with Mango Sambal

Sambal is a generic name for any paste-like condiment made with chiles. Authentic versions tend to be extremely hot. This Malaysian-influenced mango sambal works well with the Southern-style barbeque spice rub. The vinegar gives the condiment a flavor that's reminiscent of a North Carolina mop sauce.
