This is such an easy weeknight meal that's sure to satisfy. We recommend ITALIAN Spice Blend, but you can really use any other spice blend you're feeling! Pair with an easy veggie side, and you've got an easy dinner!


  • 2 tablespoons ITALIAN Spice Blend
  • 1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin (approximately 2 tenderloins)
  • 10 to 12 slices bacon


Preheat the oven to 375ºF.

Rub the Spice Blend onto the tenderloins, making sure they are evenly covered on all sides. Wrap the slices of bacon around the tenderloins, with the ends meeting underneath.

Cut pieces of cooking twine approximately 6 inches long to match the number of slices of bacon used, then tie a piece around each slice of bacon to hold it in place.

Place a large cast-iron or other oven-safe skillet on the stovetop over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, sear the tenderloins on all sides until the bacon is browned, approximately 2 minutes per side.

Place the pan in the oven and roast for 10 to 15 minutes or until the internal temperature of the pork reaches at least 145º.
