Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Maple Glaze

Have you ever wanted a recipe that was super easy to prepare but made you look like Gordon Ramsey? (Like every single day of my existence!!!😂)

Well this is the recipe for you!

I had a pork tenderloin ready to cook for dinner and started my online search for a super easy recipe that would work with my ridiculously intense mom schedule.

I came across this recipe from recipetineats.com! It had a 5 star rating and its selling point was how easy it was! Jackpot! It did not disappoint! It was beyond simple and fabulously delicious!!!

The original recipe suggested using honey instead of maple syrup but being the proud Canadian that I am, I went with the syrop! And it exceeded all my expectations!

INGREDIENTS:

8 to 10 slices of bacon

1lb / 500g pork tenderloin, at room temperature

Salt  & pepper

1 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp maple syrup (original recipe also suggested honey🍯 )

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 390F (normal oven)

Lay the bacon next to each other on a cutting board, slightly overlapping.


The width of the bacon should be enough to wrap the length of the pork.

Season the pork with salt & pepper.

Heat the oil in a skillet over high heat.

Sear the pork on all sides until nicely browned.

Place pork on the bacon.  Wrap bacon around pork, finishing with the seam side down.

Transfer back into the skillet or oven-safe dish.

Drizzle over maple syrup and brush all over.

Roast for 25 to 30 minutes, basting once or twice with pan juices.

Remove from oven and baste again. Let it rest for 5 minutes. Baste once more just before serving.
