The perfect Sunday dinner pork loin made with bacon, brown sugar, and whole grain mustard!

Bacon Brown Sugar Pork Loin #recipe #bacon #pork

When I found this recipe, I didn't even think twice about putting it on my meal plan - bacon-wrapped pork loin! I looked at the ingredients list and was a little taken aback with chutney. I had heard of it, but couldn't really recall what exactly it was. If you are also living under a culinary-noob rock, chutney is an Indian condiment made from fruit and veggies with vinegar and spices. Major Grey's is a specific kind made with mangoes and red peppers. I think the chutney and whole grain mustard (first time trying that too) really classed this dish up. The smoky paprika and spicy cayenne worked so well with everything too.

What you need:
  • 1 pork tenderloin (about 1.5 lb)
  • 3 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne
  • 4 to 6 slices bacon
  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 1/4 cup Major Grey's Chutney (or similar chutney)
  • 2 Tbsp. whole grain mustard
  1. Trim connective tissue from the pork tenderloin. Pat dry and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, salt, paprika, and cayenne. Rub mixture onto the tenderloin.
  3. Then wrap the tenderloin with bacon, securing with toothpicks, if necessary.
  4. In a large cast iron or ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.
  5. Add tenderloin and sear on each side until caramel brown, about 6 to 8 minutes each side.
  6. Meanwhile, in another small bowl, mix together chutney and mustard. Brush over the pork tenderloin. 
  7. Move an oven rack to the middle of your oven and preheat to 350 degrees.
  8. Place skillet into the oven and bake until done, about 10 to 14 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and loosely tent with aluminum foil for 10 to 15 minutes to allow pork to continue cooking.
  10. Slice after removing toothpicks and serve with any leftover chutney, if desired.
