There are so man great things on the plate in this bacon wrapped baked pork tenderloin recipe, all designed to be relatively subtle so that the subtle flavour of the pork tenderloin is still there. I like cooking with pork tenderloin as it is super quick and simple to prepare, this whole recipe, all four elements can be on your plate in an hour or less and it feels special despite being all rather simple. I do have to confess though that it does create a fair old mountain of washing up, however I sincerely recommend that you implement the ‘cook never does the dishes’ rule. A perfect way to divvy up the kitchen labour 😉
Enough of me offering advice as to how you work out your domestic arrangements, back to pork tenderloin, it is an exceptionally lean piece of meat so you must be careful not to over cook. Keep it nice and pink, an internal temperature of around 63°C-65°C or 145°F-150°F after resting for something that will be perfectly soft and moist… It’s the perfect mid-week meat for me, whether it is pork tenderloin with a cheese sauce or indeed in a take on sweet and sour pork.
Whilst the baked pork tenderloin is certainly the star of this dish the other elements are just as special… The white bean and roasted garlic puree is amazing it almost forms an emulsion similar to a thick mayonnaise but with heaps of sweet yet mellow roasted garlic flavour. And and and, the broccoli puree I think that part is my favourite, a subtle cheese back note that matches perfectly against the butter and balsamic roasted carrots which my wife loves!
