Ingredients

  • Olive oil spray
  • 2 tablespoons honey (or a low carb honey substitute)
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt (not fine salt)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 pork tenderloin (1¼ lb.)
  • 6 bacon strips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a roasting pan with foil. Fit it with a roasting rack and spray the rack with olive oil spray.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the honey and Dijon mustard. Divide into two equal portions. Set aside. 
  • Pat the pork tenderloin dry with paper towels. Sprinkle the kosher salt, black pepper and garlic powder all over the pork.
  • Wrap the tenderloin with the bacon strips, wrapping each bacon strip crosswise around a section of the pork and securing the end by tucking it underneath. It will feel a bit loose at this point, but will meld together while roasting.
  • Place the wrapped pork tenderloin on the prepared roasting rack. Brush the top and sides with half of the honey-Dijon sauce. 
  • Place the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin in the hot oven and roast until an instant-read thermometer registers 145 degrees F (medium), about 40 minutes. Loosely cover the pork with foil after the first 15-20 minutes, to prevent the bacon from burning. 
  • Remove the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin from the oven. Allow to rest 15 minutes. Brush with the remaining portion of honey-Dijon sauce, slice and serve.
