MealFit Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin Recipe from Mealfit.co!

Yummy!

Pork Tenderloin is a funny cut of meat. You can cook it and make it amazing but cook it too long and it is dry and inedible.

In this recipe we use the technique of searing. Searing is style of cooking where you cook the outside of the meat with a HOT skillet. What this does is it puts a “Jacket” on the meat and helps keep all the juices inside.

 

Remember, you are going to cook this pork in the oven so you do not want to cook it long in the skillet.

MealFit Pork Tenderloin with Honey Carrots

It’s tender, juicy, easy to prepare, healthy and lean.

Be careful not to overcook this. Worst thing you can do to pork and chicken is overcook it. So watch it close. This was the best dish all week. WOW!

If you’ve never tried this delicious recipe, it’s time to try it now!

Prep Time: 15 min

Serves:  6

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. pork tenderloins (2 tenderloins, about 2-2.5 lbs.)
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 c. soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 4 tbsp. honey
  • 2 tbsp. fresh orange juice
  • 1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil

Carrots:

  • 3 lbs. of carrots, peeled, halved, and halved lengthwise
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. raw honey
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Rinse tenderloins and pat dry. Place in a 9×13-inch Pyrex sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Take a paring knife and poke holes in the tenderloins (on the top side only) about an inch deep. Peel garlic cloves and quarter each clove of garlic-lengthwise. If they’re really big, cut them a bit smaller- about the size of slivered almonds. Place the garlic slivers in each pocket. Set aside while making marinade.
  • In a measuring cup or in a medium bowl, whisk together all the ingredients except for the olive oil. Then slowly drizzle the olive oil while still whisking.
  • Pour the mixture over the tenderloins and put into preheated oven. Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes, basting once halfway through the baking process.
  • As soon as you put in the pork loin, start prepping the carrots.
  • Once the pork is removed from the oven, allow the tenderloins to rest on a cutting board for about 10 minutes before slicing. Spoon the pan sauce over the tenderloin medallions.
  • Cut off carrot stems. Split the carrots down the middle then cut in half.
  • Put all the cut carrots into a bowl and add olive oil, raw honey, salt and pepper to taste, about ½ teaspoon of each. Toss to coat all the carrots.
  • Spread carrots out on a baking sheet, making sure they are in a single layer and not stacked on each other.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes. Serve with pork loin.

Please let me know how this turns out, I love seeing your pics on social media.

I think it’s time for a twist on the classic loaded baked potato. Meet your new best stuffed dinner buddy, the Crockpot Pulled Pork Sweet Potato! Pulled pork is delicious, and there’s nothing wrong with just eating it straight off the plate (or straight out of the oven.

This is a favorite in our home. Jackie (Wife) devours it every time I make it. Real easy.

The tenderloin recipe is traditionally done with coke but I adapted it with apple juice and club soda.

BBQStuffedSweetPotato2

Prep Time: 12-14 min

Serves: 5

  • 3 c. apple juice
  • 3 c. club soda
  • 5 large sweet potatoes
  • 3 avocados
  • Sugar-free BBQ sauce

Instructions:

  • Season entire pork loin with garlic salt and chili powder. Pour 1 c. of apple juice and 1 c. of club soda in the bottom of the crockpot and add the pork loin. Add the rest of the apple juice and club soda to just cover the pork loin. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  • Place potatoes in a microwave-safe bowl with 1 c. of water. Place a plate on top and microwave for about 15-18 min.
  • Remove pork from crockpot and discard almost all of the liquid leaving just a tbsp. or two of juice behind to help moisten the pork.
  • Place the pork back into the crockpot and then use two large forks to shred the meat. Leave slow cooker on low, or warm, to keep things hot until you are ready to serve.
  • When ready to serve, cut a slit in the sweet potato, lengthwise. Grab the potato from both ends and press together to open the sweet potato up. Fill each sweet potato with a generous helping of pulled pork and top with a small drizzle of sugar-free BBQ sauce.
