Tips & Tricks on how to make the best Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin Recipe:

  • Start this recipe with good quality meat, and make sure the pork tenderloin is at room temperature before cooking.
  • The garlic and the jalapeños are optional, you can reduce the garlic by half, if you prefer less. Also, you can skip the jalapeños all together, if you don’t like them or if you don’t have any on hand.
  • The honey can be replaced with maple syrup. I prefer to use honey, as it produces a better glaze.
  • Make sure you use longer and thinner bacon slices, that can wrap around the pork 1 1/2 times.
  • Basting the tenderloin while cooking is a very important step, so please don’t skip it.
  • Cook until the pork is no longer pink in the center. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C) for medium rare and 160° F. for medium.
  • After removing the roast from oven, place it onto a platter, cover with foil and let it rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.
  • To get that bacon extra crispy, broil the roast 5 inches from heat for about 3 to 5 minutes or until bacon is crisp and make sure you baste the roast multiple times!
  • You can also make this is advance, assemble and refrigerate. Just make sure the before you bake, to remove the pork from fridge to bring it to room temperature.
  • Serve it with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies.
