Coarse Salt
Heat oven to 350°F.

Grind the whole spices and salt together in a mortar and pestle until cracked - then add cinnamon, chili and sugar. Mix well. Rub the tenderloins with the spice mixture. Pour Olive Oil into a oven-safe pan and heat to just before smoking then sear tenderloins on all sides.

Remove tenderloins from heat and pour glaze over them then roast in preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until internal temp reaches 140 degrees in the center. Let stand 10-15 minutes before slicing.
