      From the Panhandle's home for good news and great mornings, Chef Bud Andersen's recipe for Southwest Pork Tenderloin and Green Apple Slaw:

      Southwest Pork Tenderloin

      Ingredients 3 lb Hormel Pork Tenderloin cleaned1 Cup extra virgin olive oil 1/2 Tblspn McCormick Smoked Paprika 1/2 Tblspn McCormick Dark Chili Powder1 Tblspn McCormick Pepper Supreme 1/2 Tblspn McCormick Cayenne Pepper 1/2 Tblspn McCormick garlic powder1 Tsp McCormick roasted ginger 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 Tblspn kosher salt1/3 C fresh lime juice

      Preparation Mix all the ingredients in a bowl as a marinade. Pour over the pork loin in a zip lock bag and seal. Refrigerate for 2 to 6 hours turning occasionally. Remove from marinade 30 minutes before grilling and let set out.

      On a grill heated to medium, place the loins to sear on all sides. Allow to cook 3-4 minutes on each side, turning a 1/4 turn each turn. Loin should take 12-15 minutes over medium heat. The searing will lock juices in and allow for a moist and flavorful loin with a spicy crust on the outside.
