Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Rosemary-Cranberry Glaze

17 Aug

My dearest apologies for neglecting the blog for the last two weeks…. I have been working alot… Pusuing an MBA… and I went on a weekend bender that was disguised as a bachelor party. It has all been worth it. With that being said, I have a bunch of stuff to post, but am rolling out a new category: Recipes tonight! As always, Enjoy!

Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Rosemary-Cranberry Glaze

12 ounces fresh cranberries
1 2⁄3 cups sugar
1 sprig rosemary

Combine the cranberries and sugar with 1 1⁄4 cups water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 15 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a blender and puree. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve back into the pan, pressing on the solids (discard the cranberry skins and seeds). Add the rosemary to the sauce. Cook for 10 minutes on low heat.

1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed of fat and silver skin
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄8 teaspoon ground black pepper
17 slices bacon (about 3⁄4 pound)

Preheat the oven to 400°. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Season the pork with salt and pepper. Lay the bacon strips, slightly overlapping each other, on the baking sheet. Lay the pork tenderloin down the center of the bacon strips, perpendicular to them. Wrap the bacon slices on one side of the pork around the tenderloin, tucking the bacon ends under the tenderloin to secure. Roll the tenderloin forward to finish wrapping the bacon and secure the ends with toothpicks. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush on a thick coating of glaze. Bake until the glaze sets, 5 to 7 minutes longer. Let the pork rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve the pork slices with remaining rosemary-cranberry glaze.
