My usual method of cooking pork tenderloin is to give it a coating of mustard and crushed pork rinds.
Here I've done something a little different – as well as marinating the pork first, I've kept the meat tender and juicy by wrapping it in bacon. And we ALL know that bacon makes everything better!
How to Make Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin
Trim the silverskin from a pork tenderloin, place it in a sealable plastic bag (ziplock or similar) and add onion powder, garlic paste, white wine and soy sauce. Mix the marinade around and massage it over the meat. Seal the bag and place it in the fridge for at least two hours. Overnight works fine too but probably best not to leave it longer than 24 hours.
When you're ready to cook, preheat the oven to 400F. Drain the marinade from the pork and wrap slices of bacon around it.
Place onto a baking tray and roast for 25-30 minutes or until desired internal temperature has been reached. A meat thermometer is useful here – and you're aiming for 145F for medium rare or 160F for medium.
