Want to wow your friends and family with a meal that is as gorgeous as it is delicious? Then you need to add this recipe for Bacon-Wrapped Pork Medallions from BBQ Pork Cooking to your repertoire. Although this recipe is very easy to prepare, its elegant presentation makes it ideal for entertaining. Wrapping the tenderloin in bacon not only adds tons of smoky, delicious flavor, it also helps seal in the juices of the pork, making this extra-moist. Serve with roasted potatoes and veggies. For the sauce, mix Dijon mustard and softened butter together and add a clove of chopped garlic.
1 Pork Tenderloin, 1 to 1 1/4 pound
4 Slices Bacon, Hickory-Smoked
Salt and Pepper
Cut tenderloin in 8 slices (medallions) approximately 1 to 1 1/4-inch wide. Place two slices (medallions) together and wrap bacon slice around both pieces to hold together to make pork “mignons.” Secure with wooden pick. Repeat with remaining pork medallions and bacon. Season both sides with salt and pepper and spray lightly with cooking spray. Broil or grill per directions below.
To Serve: Remove wooden pick, serve with Garlic-Mustard Butter.
Pre-heat broiler to 500º. Broil pork mignons about 4-inches from heat source for 4-5 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time.
Heat skillet or grill pan over high heat; add pork mignons. Lower heat to medium-high; cook (uncovered) for 4 minutes or until nicely browned. Turn; cook an additional 4-5 minutes or until internal temperature reached 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time.
Pre-heat grill to 400º. Place pork mignons directly over high heat. Close grill lid; grill for 4-5 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time.
