What you will need

1 pork tenderloin

1/4lb (115g) bacon

salt and pepper as needed

How to cook

1

Pork tenderloin has a thin coating of connective tissue called a silver skin. If left on, it can cause your tenderloin to curl as it cooks. If you knick this membrane with a knife, it should peel away easily.

Looks like it's going on medium-well to me. Goes great with some applesauce.
