Servings 6-8

Total Time: 45 minutes including marinating time. (would be better if marinated over night)

1 Pork Tenderloin

3 T olive oil

3 cloves of minced garlic

1 T chili powder ( I used Ancho Chili powder, added some smoke to the flavor)

1/2 T ground cinnamon

S & P to taste

Apple Salsa

2 C diced apples, I used a red and a green apple

1/2 C diced red bell pepper

1/3 C fresh lime juice

1/4 C diced red onions

1/4 C fresh minced cilantro

1 tsp fresh minced Stevia (I used this out of my garden instead of honey)

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp cracked black pepper

Preheat over 400°

Combine olive oil, chili powder and cinnamon in a large shallow bowl.  Add your pork and coat the pork evenly.  Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.  Let the pork marinate in the rub for 15 to 30 minutes. (I suggest overnight.)

While this was happening I made the salsa, pretty simply mix all ingredients stirring well.

Then after marinated, heat a grill pan over medium heat and spray with coconut oil spray.  Add pork cook until browned on each side about 2-3 minutes on each side.

Transfer pan to the oven, bake pork until desired temperature. This took us about 18 minutes.  After done, let pork rest for 5 minutes and then slice into pieces about 1/2 inch thick.

I plate these with some smashed potatoes, to add a little more to the dish and covered it with salsa.
