Ingredients

1 Tbs very finely ground coffee beans (preferably French roast)
2 tsp packed light brown sugar
1 tsp chili powder
Kosher salt
2 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil
2 - 1-lb pork tenderloins, trimmed


In a small bowl, combine the coffee, brown sugar, chili powder, and 2 tsp salt. Add the olive oil and mix well. Rub the mixture evenly over the pork and set aside.



Prepare a medium-high gas or charcoal grill for indirect cooking.



Put the tenderloins on the hot side of the grill, cover, and cook, flipping once, until grill marks form on 2 sides, about 4 minutes per side. Move the tenderloins to the cooler side of the grill and continue to cook, covered, until the temperature of the pork reaches 140 deg F to 145 deg F, 7 to 9 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board, tent with foil, and let rest for about 10 minutes.



Slice the pork and serve.

Notes

After much searching and testing for the perfect Coffee Rub, I found this one. This is THE ONE and I recommend it to everyone. It is great on pork, beef, and even burgers. It is super wine-friendly, I recommend a nice bottle of Malbec.

A dash of local for every season
