1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 145°. Line a medium baking pan with foil. Stir together brown sugar, ginger, cinnamon, salt, black pepper, cloves and cayenne pepper in small bowl. Rub pork with brown sugar mixture. Place pork in prepared pan and roast for 15-18 minutes or until the pork?s internal temperature reaches 145°. Remove from oven, cover loosely with foil, and let stand for 3 minutes. Cut into slices.

Serving suggestion: Serve the sliced pork tenderloin with brown rice tossed with thinly sliced scallions and fresh chopped cilantro. Steamed bok choy or broccoli drizzled with a tiny bit of Asian sesame oil make quick and easy side dish options.
