Ingredients

  • 1 lb pork tenderloin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8-10 slices bacon thin cut & sugar free
  • 1/2 medium apple roughly chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Pat dry the pork with a paper towel and sprinkle with salt and pepper. 
  • Place bacon slices next to each other on a baking sheet or an oven safe skillet, slightly overlapping each other so they are as wide as the length of the pork loin. 
  • Lay the pork on top of the bacon, but don't wrap the bacon around it yet.
  • Place apple, garlic, mustard, balsamic vinegar, and thyme in the food processor and process until they become a thick paste. I like to leave mine a bit chunky but you can process until smooth.
  • Coat the top and sides of the pork loin with the apple mixture. 
  • Carefully wrap the pork loin with the bacon slices, but not too tightly. The bacon will shrink as it cooks. Use toothpicks to secure, if needed.
  • Roast for 20 minutes, until the internal temperature reached 145 degrees F. 
  • Broil for 3-4 minutes until the bacon crisps up. 
  • Rest for 5 minutes, then cut into slices to serve. You can spoon some of the bacon/pork juice over the slices before serving.
