Bacon-wrapped Pork Tenderloin

I recently discovered this gem of a recipe… just can’t remember where. I do know, everything tastes better with bacon!

What you need:

  • 2+/- pound pork tenderloin
  • 12 oz thick sliced bacon, smoked if you like
  • Salt and Pepper
  • String

What to do:

Preheat oven to 375F.

  1. Trim tenderloin of silver skin
  2. Wrap with bacon slices, overlapping bacon; depending on the tenderloin, this should take 8-12 or slices of bacon
  3. Truss tenderloin and bacon with string, to keep bacon attached to tenderloin
  4. Brown wrapped tenderloin, about 5 minutes on each side, in a hot cast iron skillet
  5. Insert meat thermometer, place tenderloin on baking rack, and place in oven
  6. Bake till thermometer reads 165f. Allow about 30 minutes for baking.
  7. Remove from oven and let rest 5 minutes. Slice and serve.
