The Food Network's seasoning rub for baked pork tenderloin is both easy and effective, utilizing ingredients that may already be in the spice rack. The recipe calls for combining a teaspoon each of garlic powder, dried oregano, dried thyme, ground cumin and ground coriander in a bowl with a little salt. Using a dry hand, this is then massaged into the whole pork tenderloin before searing in olive oil and garlic and baking in the oven.

The Chicago Tribune's chipotle rub follows a different process, combining canned chipotle chili, sun-dried tomatoes, orange juice, balsamic vinegar, crushed garlic, sugar and salt in a blender to produce a wet rub for the tenderloin. This mixture can also be refrigerated and used on other meats and seafood.

Finally, the National Pork Board's "world's best" rub for tenderloins combines the diverse flavors of ginger, dried garlic, onion salt, mustard powder, crushed red pepper, paprika, cayenne, cumin and thyme with a mixture of brown and white sugars, salt and ground black pepper.
