I purchase a pork tenderloin from the market and decided to make some bacon wrapped pork tenderloins. When I got it home and opened it, it was 2 tenderloins packaged together, so if you just cooking one, well you can figure it out.. Anyway. I rubbed the pork tenderloin with applewood rub, the same applewood rub I used for my smoked ribs.
I then spread a teaspoon of crushed garlic on teach tenderloin and layered bacon on top. I had a granny smith apple laying around, so I cut that up and placed it in the roasting pan with 1/8 cup apple cider and 1/4 cup water.
I placed the lid on the roasting pan and cooked it for approx 30 minuted until the internal temperature was 160 degrees. I then basted it, and let it rest in the covered roasting pan for about 5 – 10 minutes. I then slide the pork tenderloin into 1″ think slides. To finished it up, I took a teaspoon of butter, place it in a frying pan and coated the pan with melted butter, then took the pork loin pieces and laid them down and grilled both sides for a minute or so until brown, then served them with some mashed skinned red potatoes with chopped bacon and cheddar jack cheese in them..
Boy was that good…
