Ingredients

  • 8 to 10 slices of streaky bacon longer slices
  • 1 lb pork tenderloin at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or canola oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic optional
  • 2 jalapeños sliced

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425F.
  • Lay bacon slices next to each other on a cutting board or flat pan, slightly overlapping.
  • Brush pork with olive oil and season it with salt and pepper.
  • If you are using garlic, rub it all over the pork.
  • Place pork tenderloin onto the bacon.
  • If you are using jalapeños, top the pork with the sliced jalapeños now.
  • Braid the bacon tightly around the pork. You can also secure them with wooden picks.
  • Place pork on a lightly greased wire rack in an aluminum foil-lined roasting pan.
  • Drizzle honey over the pork and brush all over.
  • Bake at 425° for 25 - 35 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion of the roast registers 155°. During the baking time, make sure you are basting twice the roast with the pan juices.
  • Increase oven temperature to broil, baste the roast again and broil about 5 inches from heat 3 - 5 minutes. Baste again and turn around the pan to make sure all sides are being broiled equally and broil for 3 more minutes or until bacon is crispy.
  • Remove from oven, baste again, cover roast with foil, and let stand 10-15 minutes or until thermometer registers 160°.
