P90X's Island Pork Tenderloin #Recipe

So as I revealed in yesterday's post, I have been trying to gradually lose weight. With this I have started doing p90x again but this time I have changed it up so I can slowly get into it and not overwhelm myself. BUT with this, because of this post, you learned that I am a Bzz Agent and on the Pork Be Inspired campaign. Being on this campaign I received high value coupons to try Kroger's Moist and Tender Pork products. So last night we broke out an awesome pork recipe that is on the p90x website:

Island Pork Tenderloin

So here is what you need:

16 ounces pork tenderloins, lean 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/4 teaspoon pepper 
1/2 teaspoon chile powder 
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
2 teaspoons olive oil 
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed 
1/2 tablespoon fresh garlic, finely chopped
1/2 tablespoon Tabasco sauce

And here is what you do:

1 - Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2 - Stir together salt, pepper, cumin, chile powder, and cinnamon, then coat pork with the spice rub.
3 - Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch skillet over moderately high heat and brown pork, turning, about 4 minutes.
4 - Stir together brown sugar, garlic, and Tabasco and pat onto top of tenderloin. Place pork in a roasting pan and cook in the oven for 20 minutes.

Super Easy!

Doesn't it look amazing? And thanks to my bzz kit, I was able to get the temperature just right.

I love being a bzz agent and trying new things. And if I can lose weight while eating yummy food along the way AND save money, that is amazing! :)

So what kind of pork recipes have you tried? 


  1. Mmmm sounds like it would be good with chicken or some other meat as well. :)

  2. My dad loved pork! Especially preparing it via roast as well. Love that you can add pretty much any veggie to it. Thanks for sharing this recipe, gotta try out this variation!
