Bacon-wrapped Pork Tenderloin

Bacon-wrapped Pork Tenderloin


  • 2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • Coarse salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Fresh sage
  • Garlic powder
  • 8 slices of bacon


  1. Remove about ½ inch off the tapered end of each tenderloin to make a perfect cylinder.
  2. Season with salt, pepper, and a pinch of garlic powder.
  3. Lay the bacon strips in a overlapping line on a sheet of cling wrap. Place sage leaves all over bacon (about 9-10).
  4. Place 1 piece of tenderloin across the short ends of the bacon and roll to cover with the bacon.
  5. Repeat with the other tenderloin segments. The bacon-wrapped tenderloins can be wrapped in plastic and stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. When ready to proceed, allow them to warm to room temperature.
  6. Preheat oven to 425 F
  7. Place the tenderloin in non-stick pan and sear on all sides over medium-high heat.
  8. Brown the tenderloin well on the first side for 2-3 minutes.
  9. Turn and cook on all sides, about 2 minutes per side.
  10. Transfer the pan to the preheated oven and cook for 8-10 minutes, turning the pieces after 5 minutes to ensure even cooking.
