Simple Pork Tenderloin Rub

A very simple rub for pork tenderloin or other pork cuts. Keep it on hand in a shaker for "emergencies".
Prep Time35 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time50 mins


  • 1 Pork tenderloin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder


  • Combine all of the ingredients (except the tenderloin of course) in a clean coffee grinder and grind into a powder.
  • Rinse the pork tenderloin with clean water and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Rub the pork tenderloin with a generous amount of the rub and allow to sit for at least 30 minutes.  For even better penetrating taste, let it sit a few hours in the refrigerator.
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  • Grill the pork tenderloin over medium-high with the lid closed until the internal temperature of the tenderloin reaches 140 degrees.  Rotate the tenderloin every few minutes to grill all sides of the meat.
  • All grills are different, but this should take around 15 minutes.
  • Let rest for a few minutes, carve and serve!
