Did you know that pork tenderloin is leaner than skinned chicken breast. Well maybe not this recipe with the bacon. But bacon sure makes it tasty.
1 pork tenderloin, cleaned and trimmed
3 slices of bacon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. sage
Combine the salt, basil, oregano and sage. Rub the seasonings all over the pork tenderloin. Wrap pork with bacon and secure with toothpicks. Take the olive oil and coat the tenderloin well. Place on a rack in a 9×13 inch pan and bake uncovered in a 375 degree oven for 1 hour, turning once, or until the pork reaches about 155 degrees. Make sure the bacon is really done. Remove the tenderloin from the oven and wrap in foil. Let stand for 10 minutes before removing foil and slicing. You can also make a gravy with the pan drippings if you wish.
