If you had told me this time last year that I would be starting to homeschool my kids, as well as being addicted to the oily way of life I would have GUFFAWED right in your face! Yes, it’s amazing what happens in a year!
Tonight I needed the recipe for our Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Pork Tenderloin, thinking it was here on my blog, I searched and came up empty. It also hit me, that, yet again, I have neglected this blog during the past year. I’m noticing a pattern. To make up for it, I shall share our favorite Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Pork Tenderloin recipe. And all shall be forgiven. Right? Right.
Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Pork Tenderloin of Shame
Pork tenderloin – 1 or 2 small-ish
Chopped onion (to taste)
Chopped jalapeños (to taste)
Dale’s seasoning (1/2 a bottle or less)
Bacon 1-2 packs
Preheat oven to 350˚.
In a dish lay bacon flat with sides touching the length of your tenderloin.
Top with chopped onion & jalapeños to taste – I normally do one with less jalapeños for the kids & note that with toothpicks stuck in the top.
Top onion & jalapeños with pork loin.
Wrap bacon around the pork loin and carefully turn over so that touching ends of bacon are on the bottom.
Pour Dale’s over the tenderloins, should be some in the bottom of the pan.
Top with foil or a lid.
Bake for 1.5 hours with lid then remove and cook another 1.5 hours, or until done.
Slice & serve.
Hear the oohs & ahhs.
I usually serve this with rice (to cut down on the spiciness) and a veggie and/or cornbread – shocker!
