Pork Tenderloin With Bacon And Rosemary

Deliciously marinated Pork Tenderloin (so tender and juicy!), wrapped in Bacon and Rosemary

Melt in the mouth Pork Tenderloin with Bacon and Rosemary is ideal to serve on a busy week night, yet just as dashing to serve at a dinner party. The Pork turns out super tender and juicy, and it is all thanks to the marinade, which is also used to baste the meat when cooking.

Of course the Bacon adds a lot of flavor, as well as act like a seal over the Pork Tenderloin, keeping all those scrumptious juices where it should be - in the meat !

I normally serve this dish with small cubed fried potatoes, some roasted small Onions and a side dish of Cinnamon Butternut. Now and then I substitute the Butternut for a crunchy Greek salad instead.

What I love most about this recipe is the variety of cooking methods one can choose from. I have cooked the Pork over the coals, in the oven under the grill, and even on the stove top using a large skillet - coals and skillet over mild heat and full grill in the oven in a baking dish on the center rack.

The Pork needs to marinate at least 2 hours before cooking, but if you are short on time in the evenings, start the marinating in the morning or even the night before (keep refrigerated).

Rosemary has to be one of the most fragrant herbs around. I love to use it in various ways - it is even strong enough to be used as a kebab stick !

And if used like that, you get extra flavor as well - just do not expect to over load the Rosemary piece... small cubes of meat with light types of vegetables i.e mushrooms, bell peppers etc do very well on a Rosemary sprig over the coals.

Remove from heat, season with some Black Pepper (if preferred) - let rest for 10 minutes and cut into slices.

  1. In the U.S they dropped the "must be well-done" requirement several years ago. I think the minimum is now 145F. For my taste I like it about 150F - but no more. It will go up 5 more degrees after it comes off the grill.

  2. I have a huge rosemary bush but don't use it too much because I find the flavour can be a bit overwhelming. Thanks for bringing this over
    Cheers
