Sweet and Spicy Pork Tenderloin

I came across this recipe then heavily adapted it for my family.  Sometimes a great recipe just needs a few tweaks to work for you and this was one of those for us.  Ultimately it ended up being a great hit and I know I will make it again!

2 pork tenderloins
4 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cinnamon
4 tbsp butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp minced garlic
 1 1/2 tbsp hot sauce

Heat oven to 350.  In a bowl mix together the pepper, cumin, chili powder and cinnamon. Rub the seasonings over the pork tenderloin.  Heat oil in a skillet and brown the pork tenderloins for about 4-5 minutes on each side. Place in a baking dish and bake for 35-45 minutes or until the tenderloin has cooked to the desired temperature. Melt the butter in the bottom of the skillet and scrap up the all the bits leftover in the bottom of the pan. Whisk in the garlic, brown sugar and hot sauce. Continue to cook over low heat while stirring often. Once the pork tenderloin is cooked, slice and serve with sauce.
