Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloins

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes

Servings: 6



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


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

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.

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

Remove from fryer and let drain on paper towel.

Slice into thin pieces and garnish with rosemary.
