  • 3 Tbsp ancho chili powder
  • 2 Tbsp paprika
  • 2 Tbsp oregano
  • 1 Tbsp salt

Prepare pork tenderloin by cutting off any silverskin. In a small bowl combine the chili powder, paprika, oregano, salt, pepper, and mustard powder. Rub on pork and let sit for 1 hour in the fridge.

Meanwhile heat your grill to medium-high and oil grill. Place pork tenderloin on grill and cover and cook, turning frequently, until done, about 12-15 minutes. Remove from grill and slice.


Grill the pork until it reaches an internal temperature of 140ºF.

You can let the rub sit for up to 4 hours.
