This recipe is the kind that I consider perfect for company. Not just company that is paleo or low-carb, but any company. The dish is visually gorgeous, yet takes such little hands-on work, that you aren’t stuck in the kitchen while your guests tend to themselves.

I mean just look at that beautiful dish!

I can’t imagine anyone not wanting this platter set on the table in front of them.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 lb pork tenderloin
  • 5 or 6 slices bacon, cut in half

For the Sauce

  • 2 c orange juice
  • 1/4 c coconut aminos
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or grated
  • 2 Tb honey
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp fish sauce
  • dash cayenne pepper

Instructions

  1. To begin, preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Combine the sea salt, garlic powder, smoked paprika, cinnamon and black pepper in a small dish.
  3. Place your pork tenderloin in a baking dish.
  4. Sprinkle the spice mixture evenly all over the tenderloin.
  5. Place a half slice of bacon across the tenderloin, tucking the ends underneath. Start at one end, and work your way to the other, blanketing the tenderloin with lovely strips of bacon.
  6. Place the tenderloin in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the tenderloin reads 140 degrees when tested with a meat thermometer. Allow it to rest 5 - 10 minutes before you slice it.
  7. While the tenderloin is baking, combine all of the sauce ingredients together in a sauce pan. Bring it to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and let it gently cook until the liquid has reduced by half.
  8. To serve, place the tenderloin on a platter with a lip. Spoon some of the sauce over the top. Reserve the rest for serving with.
  9. Slice the tenderloin into serving portions.
  10. Enjoy!

If you don’t have an electric carving knife for cutting your turkeys, roasts and other meaty dishes, you have no idea what you are missing.  Using an electric carving knife like this one, will allow you to slice right through the bacon and tenderloin while still leaving it all intact. Beautiful.
