Everything's better with bacon, and this pork tenderloin recipe is no exception! Go ahead and season the other tenderloin in the package with your favorite spice blend. Wrap and freeze to jump-start another meal.

Ingredients

  • 1 (1-lb.) pork tenderloin
  • 1 teaspoon steak seasoning
  • 3 bacon slices, cut in half crosswise

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Remove silver skin from pork tenderloin, leaving a thin layer of fat covering the pork. Sprinkle seasoning over pork. Wrap pork with bacon slices, and secure with wooden picks. Place pork on a lightly greased wire rack in an aluminum foil-lined roasting pan.

    Bring Home the Bacon
    Give into your love affair with this salty breakfast staple and bring it to the table in new and flavorful dishes including appetizers, dips, salads, main dishes, burgers and soups. Now if only we could work it into the dessert course.
  2. Bake at 425° for 25 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 155°. Increase oven temperature to broil. Broil 5 inches from heat 3 to 5 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Remove from oven; cover pork with foil, and let stand 10 minutes or until thermometer registers 160°.

  3. Note: For testing purposes only, we used McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning.
