    This is one of my go-to meals for company on a weeknight. It's fast, easy and never disappoints.

    This is delicious. I normally prefer to grill pork tenderloin, but this was so flavorful and juicy. The whole family loved it, and it was quite easy. I did need to cook it 5 minutes longer than the recipe called for, and I turned it halfway through the broiling to brown the bacon on both sides. I would definitely serve this to company.

    Excellent, my family loved it and I would serve this for a crowd easily. I cooked it about 10 min longer.

    My first time with pork tenderloin, this recipe was FABULOUS! So fast, so easy, moist, tender, delicious! Cooked it like it said to, (even had the same steak seasoning!) but I used turkey bacon. Served it with mashed poatoes from Costco. Will definately do this again!

    I tried this recipe for dinner tonight. It was so easy to prepare. Great for a weeknight dinner. I cooked both tenderloins-have 3 growing boys and a hungry husband. They thought that it was awesome. When I do this again, I will put more bacon around the meat. I may also sprinkle some olive oil before the seasoning. Used the spicy seasoning-next time i will use regular.

    Delish, but I used a 4 lb. pork loin roast instead. I rubbed it with olive oil and the steak seasoning. It was a little spicy, but very good. My family and guests loved it.

    Great pork dish for a weekday meal! I actually mixed the steak seasoning with a little olive oil and rubbed it on the dry pork loin, then wrapped in bacon. It was a little dry. I cooked it at 400 for 25 minutes but in the future I will cook at 400 for 20 minutes then do the 5 minute broil. Again, great tasting and quick to make!

    Easy and delicious! I made one minor change. I ALWAYS brine my tenderloins to make them extra juicy (1/2 sugar, 1/2 salt, 1 quart cool water let soak all day in fridge). I also recommend letting the tenderloin rest after cooking for at least 15-20 minutes covered with foil. A good resting goes a long way with pork! I also used the spicy steak seasoning. Very good!

    If you need extra flavor, spread a grainy "deli" mustard over the tenderloin first. Then season and wrap in bacon. My mom's been making pork tenderloin this way for years, and people always ask for her recipe after tasting their first bite!

    I have made bacon wrapped tenderloin a few times but this is a much easier method. I cut the tenderloin into four sections, wrap the bacon around it and cook on top of the stove. This sounds like a much easier method. Believe me I will prepare it like this from now on. Thank you.

    DELISH!!! Anytime I can get my boys to eat something that isn't fried it's a win and they asked for seconds! Super simple, house smelled incredible, this is my new go-to!

    Everything was fine until the broil to crisp the bacon step. At that point the grease in the pan caught on fire. My house now smells like smoke and my oven has baking soda all over the inside of it.

    I chose this recipe because it was super simple to prep, and it's currently in the oven now. Just wondering, has anyone else had a problem with it smoking the whole house up? I have the windows open and vent on high. I'm guessing it's from the bacon grease splashing all over my oven. What a mess! Would love to hear some feedback on how to keep this from happening next time, if there is a next time!
