Directions

In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon, coriander, cumin, paprika, salt and olive oil. Rub the mixture evenly over the pork tenderloins. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight.

Prepare a grill for high heat cooking. Place the tenderloins on the grill and cook until browned and nicely marked, 8 to 10 minutes. Turn the tenderloins and cook until a meat thermometer inserted into the center of each registers between 155 degrees F and 165 degrees F, 8 to 10 minutes longer. Transfer the tenderloins to a cutting board, tent with foil and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice and serve hot or at room temperature with Creamy Harissa Sauce.
Cook's Note: Harissa can be found at most grocery stores and in specialty markets. Substitute chili sauce for it if necessary.

In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, lemon juice, oil, harissa and garlic until combined. Season with salt and pepper.

    Such a great, easy and different take on a grilled pork tenderloin. Served with roasted cauliflower and artichoke with the creamy Harissa sauce as a dip - so yummy! Great weeknight meal or a fun yet easy dinner party meal.

    Great recipe, I had 1 small tenderloin so I used 1/2 teaspoons of everything and did a quarter teaspoon of paprika as it seems to get strong and dominate. Being from Tennessee had to add a teaspoon of Organic Maple Syrup to give it a little Southern twist tasted GREAT! Browned it on the stovetop in an iron skillet and baked it off for 30 min. Used the pan drippings and it was 4 star all DAY LONG! Thanks for existing so I can show off in my kitchen!
