Quick Mole Sauce:
1Fire Roasted Jalapenoskin removed and diced
3tbsp.Unsweetened Almond Butter
2tbspCoffeesave some from your morning brew
1cupStockchicken or veggie
Pork Tenderloin Ingredients:
21.5 lb.Pork Tenderloinstrimmed and patted dry
1tbspFine Ground Coffee
Cilantro & Cotija for garnishoptional
In a pot on medium heat, saute the onion and olive oil for 3-4 minutes. Add in the garlic and cook for a minute and mix in the fire roasted jalapeno (I include the seeds but they can be removed if desired).
Add in all the spices except the cocoa powder and stir until they are mixed into the veggies and smell fragrant about 2 minutes.
Stir in the almond butter, cocoa powder, and coffee. Mix until a thick paste forms and slowly whisk in the stock. Let the mixture come to a simmer then turn off the heat. Use an immersion blender to carefully blend the entire mixture until smooth. Set aside for smoking.
Prep the pork tenderloin by removing any silver skin and patting it dry. Use a few tbsp of the prepared mole to coat both pork tenderloins completely in a light thin layer as a binder.
5. Place the rub ingredients together in a bowl and mix. Then lightly and evenly coat all sides of the pork tenderloin and let sit while you preheat your grill.
Preheat your grill to 225 F and set it for indirect heat. Cook your pork tenderloin and mole at the same time, approximately 45-60 minutes or so. The internal temperature of your pork should reach 145 F.
Remove from the grill and let rest 10 minutes. Slice in thin medallion sized pieces and fan out. Pour the mole sauce over the top and garnish with cilantro and cotija cheese if desired.
