Bacon-Wrapped Pork Medallions


This recipe for pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon is a variation of a recipe my mother used to make with my own spin on the seasonings. It's also one of our favorites to enjoy around the holidays!

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 8 slices bacon

  • 2 pounds pork tenderloin

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Combine garlic powder, seasoning salt, basil, and oregano in a small bowl.

  2. Cook bacon in a large, oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and still flexible, 6 to 7 minutes. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Drain any excess bacon grease from the skillet.

  3. Wrap four slices bacon around each tenderloin, securing each strip with 1 to 2 toothpicks. Slice tenderloins between each bacon strip to create a total of eight medallions. Dip medallions into seasoning mix on both sides.

  4. Melt butter and oil together in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add medallions and cook for 4 minutes on each side.

  5. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake until pork is no longer pink in the center, 17 to 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
