  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt or seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place the bacon in a large, oven-safe skillet, and cook over medium-high heat for 6 to 7 minutes until the bacon is lightly browned and still flexible, turn it occasionally in between.
  3. Place the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate by a tongs. Drain away any excess bacon grease from the skillet.
  4. Combine garlic powder, seasoning salt, basil, and oregano in a small bowl and set the seasoning aside for using it later.
  5. Wrap the pork tenderloin with the bacon strips securing with 1 or 2 toothpicks per strip of bacon. Slice the tenderloin between each bacon strip into 2” thickness to create the medallions.
  6. Dip both sides of the medallions in seasoning mix.
  7. Melt butter and oil together in the same skillet or you may brush bacon grease instead over medium-high heat and cook each medallion for 4 minutes on each side.
  8. Place skillet into the preheated oven and bake until the pork is no longer pink in the center, 15 to 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
  9. Remove toothpicks before serving.
