Yum.

I have so many new dishes to dish out to you guys! This weekend was pretty delicious. A big thanks to Mr. Bobby Flay for his excellent usage of bacon.

Bacon-Herb Wrapped Pork Tenderloin

  • 1 head garlic, top sliced off
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pork tenderloins (about 1 to 1 1/2 pound each) trimmed of excess fat
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 12 fresh sage leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 12 1/4-inch thick slices bacon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Place garlic in a small ramekin, drizzle with 1-tablespoon olive oil, and wrap in foil. Bake until soft, about 45 minutes. When cool enough to handle, squeeze garlic flesh from head into a small bowl.

Arrange tenderloins on work surface. Rub the top each tenderloin with 1/2 of the roasted garlic and season with salt and pepper. Mix together the herbs and scatter half of the mix over the garlic on each tenderloin. Wrap 6 strips of bacon around each tenderloin and tie bacon in place with kitchen twine.

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Heat oil in a medium, skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the tenderloins until golden brown on all sides. Transfer seared tenderloins to medium roasting pan; place in the oven and cook to medium doneness about 8 to10 minutes. Transfer tenderloins to cutting board and let stand 10 minutes. Remove twine before carving.

TIP: We have a meat thermometer and allowed the pork to cook throughout. It actually took around 30min instead of the 8-10 min the recipe called for.

  1. Thanks for the granola bar recipe! I am def. going to try this and pass it on to my paleo-eating brother in law. After looking at some of the other recipes on here, you’ve ALMOST convinced me to give this paleo thing a try. Maybe I should start incorporating a couple of your recipes each week!
