Vortex Air Fryer Sweet Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin
This tasty dish is easy to make in just a few minutes. Pork loin and tenderloin are versatile, easy to prepare cuts of meat. Normally they are only a few dollars a pound at the store which makes them a very inexpensive dish.
How to Assemble a Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin:
- Coat the tenderloin with seasoning.
- Precook the bacon for a few minutes until it is about halfway done
- Start at one end and secure the bacon with a toothpick. Wrap it around the tenderloin.
- Grab another piece and start where the other ends. Put a toothpick in.
- Repeat until the tenderloin is covered.
What temperature should I cook my pork tenderloin too?
This is a huge debate. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests 145 degrees F for safe consumption. Foodies will tell you it is best at 135 degrees F. Some claim you need 160 degrees F to be really done. It just depends on how you like your pork!
