The original recipe for this Spiced Pork Tenderloin was on a Barcardi Rum advertisement insert in Bon Appetit magazine back in the early 90s.  I lost that original card, but that never stopped me from adapting… molding and re-molding it from memory.  This is the final result.

It smells wonderful as it is cooking.  It tastes divine.

Though this is delicious served with rice or cheese grits, my favorite way is to highlight it as part of a Cuban sandwich.  Paired with a thick slice of smoked ham and melted provolone cheese.

Enjoy!

  5. Enclose the foil. Cook at 275 degrees for 1 1/2 - 2 hours. [I generally will say - until you smell it and add 30 minutes.]
  6. Remove foil from the tenderloin, keeping the meat and the juices in the roasting pan. Shred the pork.
