Ingredients

  • 2 (1 pound) pork tenderloins, trimmed

Spice Rub:

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • ½ tablespoon sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

Glaze:

  • 1 ½ cups apricot preserves

  • ½ cup barbecue sauce

  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon hot sauce

  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

  • 1 lime, juiced

Directions

  1. Place chili powder, garlic powder, sugar, salt and pepper in a jar; shake to blend. Rub spice mixture onto pork tenderloins. Cover tenderloins and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.

  2. Prior to grilling, melt apricot preserves in saucepan over medium heat. Remove pan from the heat and stir in remaining glaze ingredients. Place half of the glaze in a serving bowl and hold for service.

  3. Prepare grill at medium-high heat. Grill pork tenderloins for 15-20 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the pork reaches 145 degrees F (63 degrees C) on an instant-read thermometer.

  4. When approximately 4 minutes of cook time remains, brush the pork tenderloins with the apricot glaze remaining in the pan. Cook for 2 minutes, turn the pork tenderloins and brush glaze on other side. Cook for an additional 2 minutes. Remove pork from the grill and let set for about 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with reserved glaze.
