  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Whisk chili powder, black pepper, ground cumin, and salt together in a small bowl. Rub spice mixture onto all sides of pork tenderloin. Place tenderloin in a shallow roasting pan.
  3. Roast tenderloin in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 150 degrees F (65 degrees C).
  4. Stir pepper jelly and balsamic vinegar together in a saucepan over low heat until jelly is completely melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Brush pepper jelly mixture over pork tenderloin and continue to bake tenderloin until jelly coating is hot, about 5 minutes more. Let pork rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

I followed the recipe and have to admit I was shocked at how fast it cooked. The tenderloin was extremely moist and I loved the flavor!

Very yummy! I also used my mom's homemade pepper jelly. It liquified just fine. Next time, I might try to grill it, then broil with the sauce on top!

wonderful quick go to tenderloin recipe. The sweet hits you first and then the spicy warms up right behind it. I used homemade pepper jelly which is thicker than store bought so mine didn't melt...

I used homemade jalapeño jelly. It was spivey but delicious. I took out at about 140 degrees, coated with sauce, covered and let sit. My husband loved it
