Coffee Cocoa Spice Rub

This is GREAT on pork tenderloin. We also made this in class, searing the tenderloin in the pan and then finishing in the oven. It was seriously YUMMY!!!

1 tablespoon black pepper - course grind
1 tablespoon ground coriander
3 tablespoons espresso, fine grind
2 tablespoons ancho chile powder
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons nutmeg, ground
1 teaspoon ground cloves
4 tablespoons cocoa - unsweet
1 tablespoon Spanish paprika
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar

Tip: Combine the above a day in advance to allow flavors to blend together.

Bourbon Marinade for Chicken
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup bourbon (can use Jack Daniels, too!)
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 honey
1/4 cup grapeseed oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ginger, fresh - peeled and minced
1 tablespoon black pepper, ground
1 teaspoon white pepper, ground

Tip: Marinade contains sugar, take care not to grill over high heat. Watch carefully so that the marinated chicken does not become charred.

** Marinate chicken 4-6 hours before roasting or grilling.
