Ingredients

  • 1 pork tenderloin cut into about 8 to 10 portions that 2" thick
  • 8-10 slices thick-cut bacon

Spice Rub:

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat, cook the bacon strips until about half-cooked.
  • Mix all the Spice Rub ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Rub the spice mixture onto the pork tenderloin BEFORE cutting it into medallions.
  • Wrap each medallion in a piece of bacon and secure it with a toothpick.
  • Place a seasoned cast-iron skillet over high heat and once hot, add the pork medallions and cook on both sides until browned 3-4 minutes.
  • Spoon over a bit of the released bacon fat onto each medallion and transfer the skillet into the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove toothpicks before serving and sprinkle medallions with chopped fresh parsley.
