Happy Girl Recipes - Rosemary Pork Tenderloin

This was the first time I made this particular recipe. I loved it, such a great flavor but I think the next time I will make a minor change, see recipe for all the info. I highly recommend this recipe...definately give it a try and let me know what you think. It's super delicious and not too bad for you if you swap out the bacon for turkey bacon.

What you'll need:

1/3 C Dijon Mustards
2 Tablespoons fresh chopped rosemary
2 Tablespoons fresh ground pepper, or coarse ground if you don't have fresh
4 Extra sprigs of rosemary
2 Cloves garlics, minced
2 (1) lb pork tenderloins, if you get one large loin cooking time will greatly increase
4 slices bacon, whatever kind you like


In a small bowl whisk the Dijon mustard, black pepper, rosemary and garlic.
Mix well. Rub the mixture over tenderloin and then wrap in plastic wrap. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Place the extra rosemary springs in the bottom of the roasting pan. Remove the plastic wrap from the tenderloins and top each loin with 2 slices of bacon. Tie with kitchen twine to secure.

Bake for 25-30 minute or until the internal temp is 160 degrees. Let the meat rest 10 minutes on a cutting board. Remove the twine, slice and serve. Enjoy!

Note: The one thing I would personally do different would be to wrap the loin in bacon and not just put the bacon down it, we like a lot of bacon!
