  • 2 1 lb pork tenderloins
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped, plus more for garnish
  • 2 slices bacon, thickly sliced
  • 2 cups peanut oil, for deep frying


Step 1

Heat deep fryer to 350°. Wrap the bacon around the tenderloins. Drizzle with olive oil, season liberally with salt and pepper and rub with the chopped rosemary.

Step 2

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and sear the wrapped tenderloins to get the bacon fat rendering, about 1-2 minutes.

Step 3

Carefully drop into the deep fryer, and cook until the internal temperature reaches 145° for medium rare, about 5 minutes.

Step 4

Remove from fryer and let drain on paper towel.

Step 5

Slice into thin pieces and garnish with rosemary.
