Chipotle Pork Tenderloin


1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons chipotle chile powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 (3/4 pound) pork tenderloins


Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the onion powder, garlic powder, chipotle chile powder, salt, and brown sugar. Place tenderloins in bag and shake, coating meat evenly. Refrigerate for 10 to 15 minutes.
Lightly oil grill grate, and arrange meat on grate. Cook for 20 minutes, turning meat every 5 minutes. Remove from grill, let stand for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.

I made this the other night (thanks to good ol Allrecipes) It had the perfect amount of spice with sweet. I let the tenderloins sit about 6 hours in the fridge with the rub on. I also decreased the amount of the chili powder by a teaspoon so it wouldn't be too hot. I will definately make this again, it was really good the next day right out of the would probably be great in a sandwich! I will remember that for next time :)
