Brown Sugar Spiced Pork Loin

This juicy pork is encrusted with a deliciously sweet brown sugar glaze.  Easy to throw together and a perfect crowd pleaser!
This version is slightly less sweet than other online recipes, since the hubs is not a huge fan of meat and sugar.
I thought it was perfect!
Brown Sugar Spiced Pork Loin
Recipe modified from Mels Kitchen Cafe

2 1/2 lbs. pork loin
2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. olive oil

1/2 c. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
1/2 Tbsp. tobasco sauce

In a small bowl, stir together salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder and cinnamon.
Pat pork dry with paper towels, and coat thoroughly with the spice rub.
Heat oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium and sear the pork on all sides.
Remove from heat.

Stir together the sugar, garlic and tabasco and pat on top of the tenderloin.
Cover the pan and roast until a thermometer reads 145, about 40 minutes.
Let pork stand in skillet at room temperature for 10 minutes - the temperature should rise to about 160.
Slice on a diagonal and serve with pan juices over top.
