Pork tenderloin is probably one of my favourite dinnertime meats. This love for pork tenderloin comes from the years of eating delicious marinated pork tenderloin that my mom always makes. She is famous for it in our house. Generally we make a sort of asian soy sauce based inspired marinade, but I was obviously watching the Food Network the other day and came across a great recipe which I can't wait to try out. Anthony Sedlak is the host for the network's show called THE MAIN. He is one of my favourite's to watch and is alwas bang on with his recipes.

Here is his recipe for JERK PORK TENDERLOIN:

Jerk Pork Tenderloin

- 1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
- 2 teaspoon whole allspice
- 1 teaspoon coriander seed
- 4 cloves
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

- 4 scallions, trimmed and cut into four pieces
- 4 garlic cloves, peeled and cut in half
- 1/4 cup choppoed thyme
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 pinch nutmeg

- In a spice grinder, mix black peppercorns, allspice, coriander seeds, and cloves until finely ground.
- In a food processor mix olive oil, ginger, scallions, garlic, and thyme, scotch bonnet pepper, brown sugar, soy sauce, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Add spice mixture and blend until mixture resembles a thick paste
- Rub pork with jerk paste, making to sure to cover completely. Let marinate 1-2 hours at room temperature, or refrigerate overnight
