Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin

Ingredients

2 pounds pork tenderloin
coarse salt
freshly gound black pepper
fresh sage
garlic powder
8 slices of bacon

Preparation

1
Remove about ½ inch off the tapered end of each tenderloin to make a perfect cylinder.
2
Season with salt, pepper, and a pinch of garlic powder.
3
Lay the bacon strips in a overlapping line on a sheet of cling wrap. Place sage leaves all over bacon (about 9-10).
4
Place 1 piece of tenderloin across the short ends of the bacon and roll to cover with the bacon.
5
Repeat with the other tenderloin segments. The bacon-wrapped tenderloins can be wrapped in plastic and stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. When ready to proceed, allow them to warm to room temperature.
6
Preheat oven to 425 C
7
Place the tenderloin in non-stick pan and sear on all sides over medium-high heat.
8
Brown the tenderloin well on the first side for 2-3 minutes.
9
Turn and cook on all sides, about 2 minutes per side.
10
Transfer the pan to the preheated oven and cook for 8-10 minutes, turning the pieces after 5 minutes to ensure even cooking.
