Traeger Cocoa-Encrusted Pork Tenderloin is your new wood-fired weakness, marinated in the bold taste of cocoa, and seared to juicy perfection. They say, “go big or go home”, but we are going big and staying home, with a heaping helping of this on the Traeger tonight.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Fennel Seed
  • 2 tsp. Cocoa Powder, unsweetened
  • 1 tsp. Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1, 1-1/2 lb. Pork Tenderloin
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 3 Green Onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Fennel Seed
  • 2 tsp. Cocoa Powder, unsweetened
  • 1 tsp. Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1, 1-1/2 lb. Pork Tenderloin
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 3 Green Onions, thinly sliced

Preparation

With a paring knife, remove the silver skin and connective tissue from the loin. In a small mixing bowl, combine the remaining ingredients, making paste. Rub the paste on the pork loin, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

When ready to cook, starts your Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until a fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to High (450°F) and preheat, lid closed (10 to 15 minutes).

Place the loin on the front of the grill and sear it on all sides. After it has been seared, reduce the temperature to 350°F and move the pork to the center of the grill.

Continue to cook for 10- 15 minutes, or until it has reached an internal meat temp of 145°F for medium to medium well.

Once it has cooked, remove it from the grill and let rest for at least 8 to 10 minutes before slicing. Garnish with green onions. Enjoy!
