Just 5 Ingredients!

Pork Tenderloin – Pork tenderloin (not a loin) is long and thin, about 7 to 8 inches and 2 inches in diameter. Frozen tenderloins should be thawed.

Bacon – Thinner sliced bacon works best in this recipe. Look for uncured or smoked bacon and avoid brands that have added sugar in their curing process.

Seasonings – Low carb brown sugar sweetener, and low carb maple syrup are interchangeable in this recipe, so use what is on hand. Dijon mustard is the perfect flavor partner with the sweetness of the brown sugar, but you can use a grainy or brown mustard, check for added sugars.

Variations – You can omit the Dijon and brown sugar sweetener for a simple herbed garlic rub, or a zesty southwestern blend which will taste great with the bacon! Or first stuff with mushrooms before wrapping with bacon for a delicious variation.

Tips for Success

  • Bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin can be prepped in the morning and kept in the refrigerator until ready to roast.
  • The key to success in this recipe is to use a meat thermometer, as pork is very lean it’s easy to overcook it. If in doubt, remove the pork at 140°F and cover it with foil, as it will continue to cook.
  • Always let the meat rest before slicing so the juices can recirculate back into the meat, keeping it juicy even after it’s cooled. This really makes a big difference, so don’t skip it.

Leftover Pork Tenderloin

Store leftover bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Reheat in a skillet on the stovetop. Try slicing into medallions to use in this creamy dijon pork medallions, recipe, just skip the cooking step and slice leftover pork into medallions to add to the sauce.

Freeze slices between sheets of parchment paper so they don’t stick together, then place them in zippered bags for up to 6 weeks. Add leftovers to egg roll in a bowl or make it into sandwiches with cloud bread, or lettuce wraps.
