Description

Easy roasted bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin drizzled with maple syrup and bourbon for extra sweetness. Juicy, tender, and delicious.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 11.25 pound pork tenderloin roast
  • 68 slices regular or thick-cut bacon
  • 23 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon, optionally mixed with maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Season tenderloin liberally with salt and pepper.
  3. Align 6-8 slightly overlapping slices of bacon flat on a cutting board with the tenderloin on top at one end. Grasp the bacon and roll tenderloin forward.
  4. Transfer to a skillet or high-rimmed baking dish with bacon seam facing down. Drizzle top with a mixture of bourbon and maple syrup (or just maple syrup).
  5. Roast for 25-30 minutes or until internal temp in the center of the thickest part reaches 145° F. I like to baste the tenderloin with the pan drippings about halfway through roasting. Remove from the oven, baste one final time, and set on a cutting board and let rest uncovered for 5 minutes before slicing. Cut into 1 inch thick slices and serve.

 


Notes

Temperatures for pork:
145° F – 150° F: Medium-rare
150° F – 155° F: Medium
155° F – 160° F: Medium-well
160° F +: Well done

Bacon will not be crispy, but tender.
