Bacon Magic

Yes, this is what you think it is: pork wrapped in bacon. I went there, and it was glorious.

Essentially I took pork tenderloin, rubbed it all over with garlic (I may have cut a few slits and stuffed some small garlic slivers in there as well), seasoned it with salt, pepper, and herbes de Provence, then wrapped the whole thing in bacon and tied it up with kitchen twine. I seared it in a frying pan until the sides were browned then finished by roasting it in the oven.

The garlicky, herby bites of bacon I sneaked while cutting the twine off were almost worth the trouble themselves. The tenderloins were out of this world - juicy, flavorful, and - hello! - wrapped in bacon.

This is not for anyone who is worried about their weight or cardiac health. If you want the recipe, comment or email me and I'll cobble it together for you.
