Ingredients

  1. 1 whole pork tenderloin or 1 center-cut pork loin fillet (13/4-2 pounds total)
  2. 1 tablespoon Pork Rub
  3. 8 slices Compliments sliced bacon

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Rinse meat and pat dry. (If you are using pork tenderloin, you will have 2 pieces of meat). 
  3. Rub meat evenly all over with rub. 
  4. Wrap bacon around pork in a spiral fashion so that it covers most of the meat. (For pork tenderloin, divide bacon between the two pieces of meat.) 
  5. Place wrapped meat on a rack in a roasting pan.
  6. Roast meat until internal temperature reaches 155°F and is just barely pink in center (use a meat thermometer and cut to test), 30-35 minutes. 
  7. Transfer pork to a serving platter and let stand 5 minutes. 
  8. Cut crosswise into slices to serve.
