My mouth is watering just by looking at this Apricot Glazed Bacon Wrapped Cajun Pork Tenderloin! The pork tenderloin is super moist and juicy, and it is wrapped with crispy bacon and glazed with an amazing apricot Dijon sauce. This has the perfect combination of sweet and healthy. A delicious combo that no one can ever resist!
I love restaurant-quality meals that I can throw together hassle-free. Just like this pork tenderloin. I think this is one of the easiest pork tenderloins I’ve made. All you need are six ingredients, and this is ready in a cinch! Pair this up with your favourite side dishes for a satisfying, very easy, and quick weeknight meal that is perfect for your entire family!
- 6 strips bacon
- 1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
- 1 tablespoon grainy Dijon mustard
- 3 tablespoons apricot preserves
Step 1: Mix the Cajun seasoning with brown sugar until well combined, then rub this onto the entire pork tenderloin.
Step 2: Wrap the pork tenderloin in bacon.
Step 3: Into a hot oven-safe skillet, add the bacon-wrapped tenderloin and cook over medium heat for about 10 to 15 minutes or until all sides of the bacon-wrapped tenderloin have browned.
Step 4: Meanwhile, prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees F or 200 degrees C.
Step 5: Once the bacon-wrapped tenderloin turned browned, shift the pan into the preheated oven. Bake the bacon-wrapped tenderloin for about 10 to 15 minutes or until done, and the internal temperature of the meat reached 140 degrees F.
Step 6: Brush the pork with the apricot preserves and mustard mixture in the last minutes of baking. Remove from the oven when done and allow the pork to rest for at least 5 minutes, covered, before serving. Enjoy!
