Grilled Brown Sugar Chili Pork Tenderloin

Learn how to make this irresistible rub and make my recipe for Grilled Brown Sugar Chili Pork Tenderloin.

We probably eat pork tenderloin at least twice a month in our home. I buy a 2-pack from Costco, make one while it’s fresh and the other goes in the freezer for a rainy day. I almost always make a Greek Pork Tenderloin… it’s easy to make and super flavorful. The other one will get grilled or sometimes I’ll get fancy and turn my oven on and roast it. I’ll season it with salt and pepper and cut a few slits in the meat and stuff it with garlic cloves. I wasn’t in the mood for either the other week and decided that I would make a rub.

I love to grill the pork tenderloin. This sweet and savory rub for the pork tenderloin is out of this world delicious. I combined chili powder, smoke paprika, a little brown sugar and cinnamon. The rub and pork tenderloin turned out delicious.

Serve with rice or veggies!

Grilled Brown Sugar Chili Pork Tenderloin


1 tbsp chili powder

1 tbsp brown sugar

1 tsp smoked paprika

1/8 tsp ground cinnamon

1 pork tenderloin

1 tbsp grape seed oil


Preheat grill on high heat. Clean and reduce heat down to medium.

While grill is preheating make the rub. In a bowl, combine the chili powder, brown sugar, smoked paprika, and ground cinnamon. Mix well.

Rinse and dry off the pork tenderloin, place on a plate. Then pour the grape seed oil on top of the pork tenderloin. Sprinkle half the rub on top, rub seasoning all over the pork tenderloin then flip the pork tenderloin over and use the rest of the rub on the pork. Once the pork is fully coated place on the grill. Cook for 20 minutes, flipping once at the 10 minute mark. Internal temperature of pork should reach 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Slice and serve immediately.
