Smoked Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin
I wanted to cook something special for some friends at work. I was going to bake brownies or cookies but one of my friends has some food allergies… What better way to get around that than pork wrapped in pork. This was absolutely delicious; we devoured these tenderloins in a matter of minutes. I promised them the recipe so here it is.
1/2 pound good smoked bacon
1 bunch fresh sage leaves
Fresh ground black pepper
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
Pepper tenderloins on all sides. place sage leave on all sides of tenderloins. No need to completely cover with sage; a little goes a long way. Wrap bacon around tenderloin. Place on a rack on a flat foil covered baking sheet or shallow roaster pan. Place uncovered in oven and cook until internal temperature reaches 145-150 degrees. Let tenderloins rest for 10-15 minutes before carving.
Tip: Place wrapped tenderloins with the bacon seams on the bottom so they don’t unwrap while cooking.
This recipe couldn’t be easier. Enjoy!
