  • 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 used this recipe without modification on two pork tenderloins and it was way too spicy. I would cut the spice rub recipe in half next time.

I made this dish tonight exactly as the recipe stated and it was delicious! I will definately be making this again.

I was looking for a last-minute, easy, pork tenderloin recipe that clearly had some spice to it -- and this definitely fit the bill. I made this for a family holiday gathering, and it was quick...

Really nice flavors! Used red pepper and pear jelly. Will make again!!

Loved this - I have lots of pepper jelly (my hot pepper plants were prolific this year) and this recipe was perfect! Doubled the recipe - used the leftovers for pork tacos. Thanks for the reci...

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...

Should have used a tenderloin instead of the pork roast that I had. Good flavor but a little dry. Will try again with the right meat.

I just love pepper jelly, and this was great !
