  1. In a small bowl, whisk lemon zest, brown sugar, paprika, cumin, and salt. Stir in oil to create a paste. Spread paste all over pork.
  2. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat; preheat 5 minutes, or heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill pork, turning occasionally with tongs, until charred and an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part registers 145°, about 20 minutes. (For larger tenderloins, bake in a 400º oven until desired temperature is reached, 15 to 25 minutes more.) Let rest 10 minutes.
