Directions

  1. Preheat a grill for medium heat. When hot, lightly oil the grate.
  2. While the grill is heating, slice the pork tenderloin into flat strips similar to the bacon. Roll up strips of bacon inside strips of pork tenderloin and secure with moistened toothpicks. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill the rolls for about 10 minutes on one side, then turn over. Slather some barbeque sauce over them and cook for another 10 minutes. Remove from the grill and let rest for 2 minutes before serving.

We loved these, but they are a bit messy to eat. I used thick cut bacon that I pre-cooked to the soft stage. This way I avoided flare-ups on my grill and the bacon was crisp by the time the pork was cooked. Next time, I probably use a tomato based sauce.

This a great appitizer for summer, I pre-cooked bacon and used a teriyaki seasoned pork tenderloin, because thats what i had. I sliced loin longways then in half to make more, they were more managable to eat, I also used Famous Daves sweet & sassy the combo of teriyaki and sweet bbq sause was wonderful, Thanks for passing this along will be making again.

I can't wrap my head around mustard based sauces so I used regular ol Sweet Baby Ray's sauce and this was REALLY good. Cook the bacon before rolling it up. I seared it and finished it in the oven. Yummy.
