Prepare the rice according to package directions, using chicken broth instead of water and adding the cinnamon stick to the liquid. Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium.
Mix cumin, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Reserving 1/2 teaspoon of mix, rub remaining seasoning mix onto pork. Allow pork to rest for 15 minutes. Grill until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the tenderloin registers 145°F, about 15 minutes. Remove pork to a plate and allow to rest before slicing thinly.
Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add reserved seasoning mix, spinach, onions and orange juice to skillet. Sauté for 5 minutes. Stir in cooked rice. Serve rice mixture with grilled pork.
