Instructions
Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin
  1. Preheat oven to 425° F
  2. Season pork tenderloin evenly with salt and pepper.
  3. Wrap each slice of bacon around the pork tenderloin until the loin is completely covered. 8-9 slices should cover it with no problem.
  4. Drizzle the bacon wrapped tenderloin with olive oil.
  5. Place pork on a lightly greased baking pan and add to the preheated oven.
  6. Cook for 30 minutes or until internal temperature is 155°.
  7. If the bacon is not crispy, broil for 3 to 4 additional minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven and cover with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes.
  9. Slice and top with homemade cranberry sauce.
Cranberry Sauce
  1. Soak the dates in hot water for 10 minutes. Peel the top layer of the dates and take the back of a spoon and mash the insides of the dates until smooth. (This step is optional. If you don’t add the dates, the sauce will be tart with a slight amount of sweetness from the pineapple).
  2. Turn stove on medium heat and place the cranberries, water, lemon zest, diced apples, crushed pineapples, orange and pineapple juice, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and salt.
  3. Bring to a simmer over medium to high heat. Allow the mixture to cook for 7 minutes or until the cranberries start to pop and burst.
  4. As the mixture heats, all the ingredients will cook down and thicken into a delicious sauce. Top with fresh lemon zest and serve
