This Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin is juicy and smokey and makes an exceptional family meal for the holidays. I love to serve it with a side of Green Beans with Pecan Vinaigrette.
The pork tenderloin is super easy to make- only 4 ingredients including the pork are needed.
The flavor of this pork tenderloin comes from 3 sources- a marinade, a rub, and the bacon that is wrapped around it.
I first marinade the pork in Stubb’s Pork Marinade for up to 24 hours. It’s made from chilis, lime, and ginger and it gives the pork a wonderful base flavor plus helps it cook up super tender.
Next remove the pork form the marinade and sprinkle it with a little Stubb’s Pork Rub. Then wrap it in bacon, place it in a 400 degree oven until it reaches about 140 to 145 degrees. Turn on the broiler to crisp up the bacon. Let it rest a few minutes and it’s ready to serve. So easy and so delicious!
Stubb’s has so many different Bar-B-Q Sauces, marinades, rubs, and Cookin Sauces that really add bold flavors to your food. Plus they have a huge collection of recipes on the Stubb’s BBQ website to help you add some of that awesome Stubb’s flavor to your meals. I’ve paired this Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with the Green Beans and Pecan Vinaigrette recipe from their site. It’s a really flavorful way to serve green beans and is a wonderful recipe for the holidays.
- 1 pork tenderloin
- ½ cup Stubb's Pork Marinade
- 1 teaspoon Stubb's pork rub
- 6 slices bacon
- Place pork tenderloin and marinade together in a large plastic bag and seal. Refrigerate for 4 to 24 hours. Remove tenderloin from bag. Pat dry with paper towels.
- Sprinkle Stubb's pork rub evenly over tenderloin.
- Wrap bacon pieces around tenderloin. (Not too tight because bacon will shrink as it cooks.)
- Place on a foil-lined baking sheet or pan and bake in a 400 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes. You want the internal temperature to reach 140 to 145 degrees at this point. It will go a little higher when you broil it.
- Turn broiler on high and broil until bacon is crispy. Check to see that internal temperature is about 145 to 150 degrees.
- Let rest before slicing.
