The homemade paprika spice rub really brings out the flavor of roasted pork tenderloin.

How to Make It

Preheat oven to 500°.

Step 2

Rub Paprika Spice Blend over pork. Place pork in a roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 500° for 20 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155°.

This was an Outstanding CL weeknight meal. The flavor was very good and the meat was moist. In my oven, it took 30 minutes to cook. I served it with a baked (in microwave) sweet potato and mixed vegetables. Easy and delicious meal.

This was excellent. Super easy to make and the whole family enjoyed it. I was afraid it would be too spicy but my son didn't seem to mind (he's the sensitive one). Great staple!

This has become a family favorite. It can easily be cooked outside on the grill on a hot summer day which is an added bonus.

Very spicy and hard to cook at a such high temperature.

This is my "go to" recipe for novice cooks who want a simple main course to impress guests. Add a veggie, a salad, some cous cous or grain blend and Voila! The rest of the spice blend is ready for a future fast meal.

Very good...followed someone elses suggestion and I made a glaze with jalapeño pepper jelly and butter. It was very good. I served it with baked sweet potatoes and sauteed spinach... I certainly will make it again!

I rubbed the spice mix on the pork, wrapped the tenderloins in plastic wrap and stored in the fridge overnight. Then I glazed the pork tenderloin with hot jalapeno pepper jelly just before it is done on the grill and it is outstanding. It was a big hit at my dinner party. Everyone loved it!!

It was good but nothing special. The rub was easy to make and made a quick weeknight meal. I think I just have a personal preference to marinades rather than rubs.
