"This is a combination of several pork recipes. The lemon/lime juice makes it absolutely divine, and the apples and bacon complements the tenderloin beautifully. Serve with wild rice, corn, or zucchini patties."

  1. Season pork tenderloins with salt and black pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook tenderloins in hot oil until browned on each side, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Remove from heat and cool.
  3. Preheat oven to 380 degrees F (193 degrees C).
  4. Stir juice from 1/2 lemon, sage, and lemon zest together in a bowl until a paste forms; spread paste over each tenderloin.
  5. Wrap bacon strips around each tenderloin and place in a baking dish. Scatter apples around tenderloins and drizzle juice of 2 lemons over meat and apples.
  6. Cook pork in the preheated oven until apples are tender and pork is slightly pink in the center, about 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Upped the temp to 425. The bacon would be limp at 380 for the cooking time and I had to cook longer than recommended. Taste was okay, but the "paste" wasn't really a paste and the sage was a lit...

A solid, 4-star recipe--my only real criticism is that there was not enough sage and zest for two tenderloins. I divided it in half, and I only had enough to put a very skimpy amount under the ...

The temperature needs to be higher or you end up with a tenderloin wrapped in half cooked bacon. The taste was good, with both the apple and citrus flavors coming through. Would make this again.

It turned out very well.

I followed the advice in the reviews and upped the temp and broiled at the end, but overall it was still very meh. Not what I’d hoped for. Won’t make again.

Excellent. The lemon and sage gave this a great flavor, and was something I wouldn't have thought to put together myself. Will definitely be making this again!

Cooked it at 425 F for 40 - 45 minutes. Broiled it a bit to give the bacon some crispness. Very yummy.
