Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin
We love this simple bacon wrapped pork tenderloin! The creamy onion sauce and bacon make this easy dinner look fancy without the extra work. Serve it with a salad or rice and veggies for a fast, easy meal.
Servings: 4 people
- 1 pork tenderloin about a pound or a bit more
- 14 slices thin bacon or prosciutto see note
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 envelope Lipton’s Dry Onion Soup Mix
- ¼ tsp. black pepper coursely ground
Preheat oven to 400 F.
On a piece of parchment paper, lay strips of bacon next to each other vertically so they are slightly overlapping. There should be enough bacon laid out to cover the pork end to end.
In a medium bowl combine the mayo, soup mix, and pepper. Stir together and slather on the bacon in a rectangle where the pork will go.
Spread the sauce down the center of the strips of bacon in a long mound.
Pat the pork tenderloin dry and lay it on the sauce.
Use the parchment to roll the bacon around the pork with ends overlapping. When you transfer to the rack the overlaping end side goes down.
Transfer to a rimmed baking dish with a rack and cook for 30-40 minutes until a meat thermometer reads 155 F.
Let the meat rest for 10 minutes and then slice.
This is also amazing with prosciutto wrapped around the sauce covered pork loin. Plan on 7-8 slices of prosciutto instead of the bacon but the cooking time will be about the same.
Feeding more people? You can double the recipe bake 2 pork loins on the same cookie sheet.
