Description

Bacon makes everything better – especially this Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin!  Prepare the tenderloin ahead of time to let it marinate for the best results.  This pork dinner takes very little on-hand time and is a crowd pleaser!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 lbs pork tenderloin, cut into 6 inch pieces
  • 1 lb thick cut bacon
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh onion
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar

Instructions

Wrap the bacon around the pork tenderloin in a criss-cross pattern.  Use a fork to pierce the tenderloin in several places.  Place in a 9×13-inch baking dish.

In a separate bowl, combine the soy sauce, onion, garlic powder, balsamic vinegar, salt and brown sugar.  Pour the mixture over the pork.  Refrigerate the pork, uncovered, for at least 3 hours, up to overnight.  Spoon the sauce mixture over the pork every hour or so, if possible.

Heat the oven to 300ºF.  Bake until the center of the pork reaches 145ºF, 1 to 2 hours.  (It is definitely best to have a meat thermometer for this.  That will ensure that your pork is not under or over-cooked.  If the bacon starts to burn, place a piece of foil loosely over the top.  If desired, broil the pork for a minute or two once it is done to crisp up the bacon.

Remove from the pan and let the pork sit for a few minutes before slicing into pieces.  If desired, serve with some of the extra juices from the bottom of the pan.
