What you will need

1 pork tenderloin

1/4lb (115g) bacon

salt and pepper as needed

How to cook

1

Remove silverskin

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.

2

Trim

Slice off any other excess fat and connective tissue you see. Those white spots have a tendency to cook up tough.

3

Season

Season with salt and pepper.

4

Wrap in bacon

Trim slices of bacon so that they are just long enough to wrap around your tenderloin. Arrange on a cutting board with edges overlapping. Place tenderloin on top and roll tightly.

5

Sear

Heat a sautée pan over medium heat. Place your bacon wrapped tenderloin in the center of the pan.

6

Turn

When the bacon on the bottom is a rich golden brown and crispy, rotate the tenderloin. Continue rotating until the bacon is golden and crispy all the way around.

7

Slice

Move the tenderloin to a cutting board and let it rest for about ten minutes. Then slice against the grain. If your bacon is crispy all around, your tenderloin should be thoroughly cooked.

8

Serve

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