Pork Tenderloin Recipe

by Kay~Kacey on 9/4/2008

Looking for a quick and easy recipe for an entree? Try this pork tenderloin recipe! (notice a trend on my recipes? Quick. Easy.)

old church recipe book

I got this recipe from this old church recipe book. It was from the church I went to when I was a little girl. This was my grandmother’s copy of the book because I was like 6 or so when it was published, so obviously I didn’t get my own copy then. I grew up eating lots of recipes from this book. You can see the book is a bit tattered, but I still hold it dear.

pork tenderloin ingredients


2 pork tenderloins
4 slices of bacon
1 tbsp grated onions (I use minced onions if I don’t have fresh)
1 clove garlic or garlic salt (I use minced garlic or sometimes garlic powder if I don’t have fresh garlic)
1 tbsp wine vinegar
1/2 tsp sugar

pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon

Line a pan with foil. Trust me. You’ll want to do this. Makes clean up a snap. I’m into easy.

Wrap the pork tenderloin in bacon. Sprinkle other ingredients on top. (really, how much easier can this get?)

Bake uncovered for 2 hours at 300 degrees. (or if you’re like me and always running a bit behind :roll: , you can also bake at 325 for about 1 1/2 hours.)

slice on the diagonal

Slice it on the diagonal using the perfect knife like SuperGuy is demonstrating for us.

pork tenderloin and peaches

Doesn’t that look yummy?? I usually serve with some wild rice and call it good. My mom adds a couple splashes of soy sauce to it when she makes it ’cause my mom can’t just follow a recipe without messing with it a bit. :mrgreen:

I’m not that much into pork and it even looks yummy to me!

Okay, now I’m drooling. I am absolutely going to have to tray that one when the weather cools down and we can use the oven again. (We don’t cook during the summer if we can possibly avoid it.)

I love pork tenderloin. Looks like a recipe that even I could make! Thanks, Kacey.

This looks so good, I am going to try it.

I have a stack of old church cookbooks and love them. When I helped make one years ago – my kids were little – I bought them each one and saved it in plastic until they got married. My second daughter who has 4 kids has worn hers out. We’re going to take mine, which is still readable, and have a few new ones printed from it.
