Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin Medallions

Mmm, porky.

Homer: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Lisa honey, are you saying you're *never* going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?

Lisa: No.

Homer: Ham?

Lisa: No.

Homer: Pork chops?

Lisa: Dad! Those all come from the same animal!

Homer: [Chuckles] Yeah, right Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal.


This is very good, very easy, and very Homer Simpson.

Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin Medallions
1 pork tenderlion (1 to 1.25 lbs.)
8 slices of bacon
salt and pepper
toothpicks or shish kebob skwers

Cut tenderloin into 8 slices (medallions) about 1 to 1.25 inches wide, and season generously with salt and pepper. Wrap the outside of each medallion in bacon, and secure with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining pork and bacon, and place on a greased roasting rack over a baking sheet.

Preheat broiler to 500-degrees F. Broil medallions about 4-inches from heat source for 6 to 8 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches about 160-degrees F. Remove wooden pick before serving.

Grade: A-

OMG! That episode- and the one where Homer gets 'Beef Poisoning' from eating that ginormous steak... what a riot. I've never thought to do this with a pork tenderloin, I've always roasted it whole. Thanks for the idea!

Oh my Laura! It's like we're speaking the same language. HAHA! I've been experimenting with pork as of late. Pork chops especially as they've been super cheap here! What an amazing dish you've prepared. I'll have to surprise the family with it in the near future! Thanks for sharing <3

It's just a little dirty. It's still good, it's still good! It's just a little slimy, it's still good, it's still good! It's just a little airborne, it's still good, it's still good!

Love it.

Any recipe that starts with wrapping something in bacon has got to be good!
