Jay D's Bites: Spicy & Sweet Cast Iron Bake

by Aimee Tortorich

We love Jay D’s Spicy & Sweet Rub, so naturally we use it as an all-purpose seasoning on anything from protein to vegetables. For this recipe, we used the rub not only on the pork, but also the Brussels sprouts and roasted them together to make a glorious marriage of flavor; super easy, quick and a weeknight winner.


Spicy & Sweet Cast Iron Bake



Serves 4

2 Tbs Smoked Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Red Stick Spice Company
2 Tbs Jay D’s Spicy & Sweet Rub
1 pork tenderloin, about 1 lb.
½ pound Brussels sprouts, halved
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Rub pork tenderloin with 1 Tbs of smoked olive oil and 1 Tbs of Jay D’s Spicy & Sweet Rub. Sear on all sides in a cast iron pan and set aside. 

Toss Brussels sprouts with 1 Tbs of smoked olive oil and 1 Tbs of Jay D’s Spicy & Sweet Rub and sear in the same pan on all sides. 

Add seared tenderloin on top of Brussels sprouts bake in cast iron pan for about 10 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145ºF.
