  • 1 pork tenderloin (3/4 to 1 lb/375 - 500 g)
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) chili powder
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) ground cumin
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground mustard
  • 1 medium green onion, finely chopped (1 tbsp/15 mL)


  • 1
    Cut pork into 32 (1-inch) pieces; place in medium bowl. In small bowl, mix chili powder, cumin, brown sugar, garlic powder and red pepper. Reserve 2 teaspoons spice mixture; sprinkle remaining mixture over pork pieces; stir to coat completely. Let stand 15 minutes.
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix mayonnaise, mustard, reserved 2 teaspoons spice mixture and the onion; set aside.
  • 3
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Spray grill basket (grill "wok") with cooking spray. Spoon pork into basket.
  • 4
    Place basket on grill. Cover grill; cook over medium heat 10 to 12 minutes, shaking basket or stirring pork once or twice, until pork is no longer pink in centre. Serve with toothpicks and mayonnaise mixture for dipping.

  • Success: This amount of pork fits nicely in most grill baskets, but you could also thread the pieces on skewers to cook them.
  • Success: If you opt for bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before using to prevent burning. Turn the skewers once during cooking.
