Sweet and Spicy Pork Tenderloin with Orange Glaze

This one is a bit time consuming but totally worth it!!!
Plan ahead there is a 2 hour "marinade" time-sweet and spicy rub mixture needs a little time to work its magic;)
Tenderloin is so yummy and is especially so with the sweet and spicy rub!
Here is what you'll need for that yummy rub...
hot Mexican-style chili powder
garlic powder
dried oregano

Mix up ahead of time and get to work on the tenderloin-
slice them 3/4 of the way through and open like a book-pound flat.
Rub all sides with the spice mixture and refrigerate.

Meanwhile make a glaze:

orange juice
brown sugar
Worcestershire sauce

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 mins. until mixture has reduced down to 2/3 c.
Cool completely.
Preheat grill and throw on tenderloins, flip after 3 to 4 mins and baste with the glaze.
Repeat with other side.
Use all the glaze its delish!!

This recipe is from Weight Watcher Magazine.
