Pork Tenderloin with garlic brown sugar glaze( adapted by me)

This is a sweet and Spicy pork. My hubby's doesn't usually like sweet meat but HE LOVED THIS!!! His reasoning was that pork is naturally salty so this balances out well with just a little kick lol!! He literally ate 6-8 pieces
1 pork roast (about 5 lbs or  tenderloins)
4  tsp. salt
1/2 -1 tsp  fresh ground black pepper
1-1 1/2 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
4-6 tablespoons olive oil
cup brown sugar
tablespoons finely chopped garlic
teaspoon Tabasco sauce  (or adjust to suit heat level)

In a small bowl stir together the salt, black pepper, cumin, chili powder and cinnamon.
 Using clean hands rub the spice mixture over the pork to coat well.
Heat a large oven-proof skillet with oil over medium-high heat until very hot.
Add in roast  
 Brown the pork on all sides then leave in the skillet.
 Put in pork in crock pot then cover with glaze.
To make the glaze: Stir together brown sugar, garlic and Tabasco; pat onto the top of roast
Roast in the crock pot for 3-4 hours or until a thermometer registers 150°F.
 Let sit in the crock pot  for 10 minutes at room temperature (the temperature of the pork will rise to about 160F while standing for the 10 minutes). 
 Remove to a board and slice
