Lol… I didn’t know what else to call it that wouldn’t end up being a paragraph in name…. pork tenderloin rubbed with spices and brown sugar, rolled in bacon and then smothered in a maple mustard sauce. Isn’t that a mouthful? I think the title I decided on works just fine!
I really couldn’t decided which way I wanted to cook the pork tenderloin for dinner the other night so I decided to combine a few different ways and the end result was a very flavourful pork tenderloin that even passed the Chris Chocolate Milk test lol!
Here are the ingredients I used to make my Triple Threat Pork Tenderloin…. except for brown sugar… as per my norm, I forgot to include an ingredients lol!
To start, I combined the cumin, cayenne, paprika, ginger and brown sugar in a small bowl to make the rub.
I sprinkled and rubbed this mixture all over the pork tenderloin, coating it evenly.
Next, I wrapped the rubbed tenderloin with the bacon, tucking the edges under the start of each new slice. I used about 6 or 7 slices per tenderloin. And I placed it into my foil lined baking pan.
In a small bowl (I used the same small bowl), I mixed together the Dijon mustard, hot and spicy mustard and maple syrup….
And brushed this mixture evenly over the bacon wrapped tenderloins.
I cooked them at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes to one hour, until cooked through and the top was nicely browned from the sauce.
I sliced it….
And then served it with some scalloped potatoes and veggies!
