 Ingredients List

  • 4 lbs pork tenderloin
  • For the Dry Rub (Mix all ingredients together until very well combined)
  • 2 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 3 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp five spice powder
  • 3 tbsp powdered ginger
  • 3 tbsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp dry thyme
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp crushed chili flakes more or less to taste
  • For the Sauce
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves finely minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups plain tomato sauce
  • 6 tbsp reserved dry rub
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika


Place the tenderloin on a large cutting board. cover with a couple of layers of plastic wrap and using a meat mallet or other heavy object (my marble rolling pin works great) pound the tenderloin to about a half inch thickness and then cut it into 1 inch wide strips.
Reserve 6 tbsp of the dry rub to use in the barbeque sauce.
Toss the pork strips in the dry rub so that they are completely covered in the rub. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for several hours or overnight.
Grill over high heat for only a couple of minutes per side. Brush both sides of the ribs with barbeque sauce and cook for an additional minute or two. Let the ribs rest for a few minutes before serving with additional BBQ sauce for dipping.

To prepare the BBQ Sauce
In a small saucepan over medium heat add the garlic and olive oil.
Stir over medium heat for a minute to soften the garlic.
Add all of the remaining ingredients for the sauce.
Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes over low heat or until the sauce reaches a thick crushable consistency.
