Dutch Oven - Chipotle Pork Tenderloin

Last night we had Mark Hansen of Mark's Black Pot and his delightful family for a Dutch oven gathering. Mark brought his amazing garlic potatoes and a swirl bread with a crumb so soft you could sleep on it! We all had a great time, just sitting on my patio shooting the breeze while dinner cooked and the kids gave my dog some much needed exercise. Mark and I have been friends since I was a boy and he is a giant among men. He is releasing a series of 4 cookbooks and we'll let you know when they hit store shelves.

12" Dutch oven
375 degrees
30 minutes prep
60 minutes cooking

1 pork tenderloin pack
Tone's Chipotle Southwest rub
1 cup plum sauce, divided

Roll tenderloins (there is usually 2 in a pack wrapped as one) in Chipotle rub. Heat an oiled dutch oven on a camp stove or propane grill. Sear all sides until browned. Remove from stove and put the oven on the charcoal. Bake for 60 minutes. Do not open the lid until 60 on the nose! Remove from heat, empty the coals from the lid and cover. While the pork rests, go make the plum sauce. Slice the pork into medallions and drizzle the plum sauce over the meat. Reserve half the sauce and serve on the side.
