Pork Tenderloin - 1 1/2 - 2 lbs.
Cumin – 2 tsp

Salt – ¼ tsp
Pepper – ¼ tsp
Rhubarb stems, cut into 1 inch chunks – 4 cups

Onions – ½ cup
Raisins – 1/3 cup
Sugar – ¾ cup
Cider Vinegar – 1/3 cup
Ginger – 1 Tbsp
Garlic Powder – 1 Tbsp
Cumin – 1 tsp
Cinnamon – ½ tsp
Cloves – ½ tsp

To roast: Preheat oven to 500 (you will want to have a clean oven for this). Place tenderloins (rubbed with the cumin, salt and pepper) on a foil-lined baking sheet sprayed with PAM. Roast 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 145. Remove from oven and let rest, covered for 5-10 minutes before slicing.

To grill: preheat grill to medium-high. Oil grill racks to prevent sticking. Place pork (rubbed with cumin, salt and pepper) on racks and grill, covered, for 20-25 minutes, turning occasionally, until done (meat thermometer registers 145). Remove meat from grill and place on platter. Let rest 10 minutes, covered, before slicing into medallions.

1. In sauce pan, place the remaining ingredients and cook over medium heat stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves. Turn up heat to medium-high and cook until rhubarb is tender and mixture thickens slightly.
