I don't like to toot my own horn too much (okay, so sometimes I do) but this Sweet & Smoky Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin recipe i'm going to share with you is one that could win prizes. I'm talking big prizes. I'm pretty sure it's mine and my husband's new favorite food and I'm also pretty sure we're going to be making it again this week. If you're a fan of juicy pork tenderloin, bacon and just overall delicious food you will like this recipe. No, scratch that -- you will love this recipe.

Sweet & Smoky Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin Recipe: {Print Recipe}

1 pound pork tenderloin
4 slices bacon
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1.5 teaspoons smoked paprika (hot)
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

After removing from package, dab excess juices from pork tenderloin and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, smoked paprika, brown sugar, garlic powder, pepper and salt. Set aside. Coat tenderloin with dijon mustard then rub with brown sugar mixture.

Wrap bacon slices around tenderloin and secure with toothpicks.

Place in preheated oven and cook for about 30 minutes. Set oven to "broil" and cook for additional 7-10 minutes, or until pork temperature reaches 155 degrees.

Remove from oven, cover with foil, and allow to sit for 10 minutes.

Remove toothpicks, slice and serve. *Make sure to drizzle some of the juices from the baking sheet over the meat after you've sliced it. So, so good!
