Pork Tenderloin Bacon Wrapped? onion mix?

blakeasblakeas Posts: 241
did a search on here and came across many ideas - But I have some thick bacon with peppercorns and was thinking of wrapping the pork tenderloin and then cooking direct?  Suggestions?  Should I rub with onion mix along with mayo and then bacon wrap?

    Try it and report back! Please post pics! I don't see how this can turn bad.

    so like 450 degrees direct?  till it hits 135?  or will the bacon not be cooked ?

    If you are concerned about the bacon, you can parcook it in the microwave before wrapping (just a few minutes). You may have to use a few tootpicks to make it stay. 450 seems hot to me but it could work. I would probably aim for 400F.

    @Blakeas you inspired me to give this cook a try tonight. MDSH is on board too - he thinks bacon is a food group. ;;)

    Do we slather the mayo, put the onion mix and put bacon on it and keep it in fridge for a certain amount of time?

    I would put the bacon first.

    I cooked this tonight and it's a keeper. I rubbed the mayo and onion soup on the meat and on top of the bacon. Cooked at 375 direct to 135. Good eats. Thanks for posting it. ;;)

    I cooked this as well yesterday - I lathered up the tenderloin with mayo, put the onion mix on, and then wrapped peppercorn bacon around it.  I got the egg to 400 direct and put the loin on.  I overcooked it though as I took it off when it hit 140 - I should have taken it off at 130.  It continued to cook and was a little well done.  Still tasted real good though!  its a keeper

  • I like my pork tenderloin with a light coating of rub (and that's all).
