If you are ever looking for an easy to prepare a meal for a weeknight, this bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin is perfect. It is so easy to make, you don’t need to measure anything, and you can put this recipe together in no time.

Pork tenderloin is not to be confused with pork loin. The pork tenderloin is equivalent to the beef tenderloin in the sense that it is the most tender cut of meat from the pig.

Best of all, pork tenderloins are relatively inexpensive. I have often found these for under three dollars a pound. For me, that is an incredible deal. The pork tenderloins are relatively small, you can feed 2 to 4 people with one tenderloin, some of this depends on your appetite.

This recipe takes very little time to cook. This meat isn’t a large roast, so it is going to cook very fast. You may want to purchase a thermometer just to be certain that you cook your meat to the proper temperature. Pork is properly cooked at 145 degrees.

For this recipe, I flavor the pork tenderloin with smoked paprika and mustard. Smoked paprika adds just a touch of smoky flavor. Mustard goes together with pork very well.
