Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Apple Chutney Stuffing

 

Let me just say this:

Bacon + pork tenderloin + homemade apple chutney = juicy, tender, flavorful awesomeness!

 

Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Apple Chutney Stuffing

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 pork tenderloin, 2.5 – 3 lbs

1 package Applegate Farms Hardwood Smoked Sunday Bacon

1 Apple Chutney recipe (see below)

cooking twine

sea salt

black pepper

garlic powder

olive oil

Directions:

Rinse the pork tenderloin in cool water and then pat dry with paper towels.  Using a sharp kitchen knife, slice into the middle of your pork tenderloin lengthways from top to bottom to “open it up” and make more room for the apple chutney stuffing.  Slice into the tenderloin with your knife at about 1/2 an inch depth.  Lightly sprinkle the insides of your pork tenderloin with sea salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Stuff each portion of the tenderloin with apple chutney, then carefully bring both sides together and wrap with bacon.

(It’s a bit cumbersome, but hang in there.  I promise it’s worth it!)

Tie securely with kitchen twine in several different places.  Lightly baste the bacon wrapped tenderloin with oil.  Place in a 9 x 13″ baking dish and bake in a preheated 375 degree (F) oven for about an hour or until a thermometer reaches at least 155 degrees (F).  Cover with aluminum foil and let rest for 10 minutes (remember the internal temperature will continue to rise inside the meat).

Remove the kitchen twine, slice, and enjoy!

 

Apple Chutney Recipe:

4 small organic apples, peeled and chopped in to small pieces (I used Braeburn apples – it’s what I had)

1/4 cup rice vinegar, low sodium & low sugar

1/4 cup coconut palm sugar

1/4 piece of a large yellow onion (leave as a chunk, do not slice)

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp ground ginger

2 pinches red pepper flakes

pinch of nutmeg

black pepper

Bring all ingredients to a boil in a saucepan, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 25 minutes, stirring frequently.  Remove onion chunk and refrigerate until ready to use.

    This looks amazing! My hubby is going low-carb and I'm trying to find good recipes for all of us to eat for dinner. This looks seriously yummy and totally do-able! Becky B.www.organizingmadefun.comOrganizing Made Fun

    Although, I'm not big on pork, you made this look awful good. I do want to try your hamgurger buns, though. Could use a good recipe for some.

    Looks great but do you really need the oil on the bacon? We always put bacon on our turkey and never need to oil or baste–thought that’s what the bacon was for… am I missing something?

      Hi Emily,
      You could probably do without oiling the bacon, but at least make sure the parts of the tenderloin that aren’t covered by bacon are brushed with oil. :) Megan
