Ingredients

  • 10 slices bacon approximately 10 ounces
  • 1 pork tenderloin about 1 pound
  • 3 Tablespoons yellow mustard
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C). Spray a large baking dish or a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray (line with aluminum foil first for easy clean-up if desired).
  • Pat pork dry with paper towels and place in prepared dish.
  • In a small bowl, make a sauce by combining mustard, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Stir, stir, stir until the sugar basically dissolves into the mustard.
  • Set aside 3 tablespoons of sauce to use right away. Leave the remaining sauce in the bowl, cover, and set aside to serve with pork later. 
  • Baste about 2-3 tablespoons of the sauce onto the pork.
  • Wrap bacon around the pork, slightly overlapping each slice and tucking the ends under the tenderloin.
  • Bake 20 minutes or until cooked to 135 degrees F. Remove from oven and baste with pan juices.
  • Return pork to oven and bake an additional 10 minutes or until done (about 145 degrees F or 63 degrees C). Keep an eye on your pork because cooking times may vary. I have had slightly larger tenderloins that take a bit more time to cook through.
  • Tent with foil and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with reserved mustard sauce on the side or baste with the reserved sauce just before slicing.

Notes

Cook's Tips:
  • If you’re serving a family of 4 (or larger), I suggest doubling the recipe and baking two tenderloins side-by-side on the baking sheet. One 1-lb. tenderloin will probably not be enough for a hungry family!
  • Don't forget to set aside some of your mustard sauce for serving. You don't want to contaminate the whole bowl of sauce when you baste the raw meat, so be sure to pull out about 3 tablespoons into a small dish and keep the rest for later.
  • Line your baking sheet or baking dish with foil for quick clean-up!
  • When wrapping the bacon around the pork, make sure to overlap each slice of bacon slightly. This ensures full coverage! You also want to tuck the ends of the bacon under the pork so that everything stays in place.
  • If cooking the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin on the grill, be sure to use kitchen string to tie the bacon onto the tenderloin.
  • For the Grill: cook pork over medium-high heat for 35-45 minutes.
