During the work week we’ve been eating super simple dinners – breakfast, tacos, takeout, etc. We actually love breakfast for dinner so no one is complaining in my house. However, I really miss cooking more involved dinners so I’ve been saving Sunday’s for my meals that require a bit more prep work. Oh, and we’re doing low carb around here so I’ve been trying to come up with as many creative ways to cook meat as I possibly can. This past Sunday I cooked one of my favorite meats yet…bacon wrapped goat cheese stuffed pork tenderloin. I’ll let that marinate for a little bit…
Sounds pretty delicious right? Well it was!! And it’s sad that I’m even calling this a “more involved dinner” because it really only took me 15 minutes to throw together. Just stuff, wrap and bake!
Bacon Wrapped Goat Cheese Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
1 – 2 Pork Tenderloins
8 oz Goat Cheese
1 Package of Bacon
Salt ad Pepper
On a large cutting board roll out your tenderloin and tenderize it with a meat mallet. Or, if you’re not as fancy like me just stab it a million times with a fork. Drizzle some olive oil over meat, add salt and pepper, load up on goat cheese and sprinkle with rosemary. Wrap the tenderloin up with bacon, making sure the ends are tucked under the meat so they don’t pull away during baking. Place on a baking sheet and cook at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes per pound or until your meat thermometer reads 170 degrees. Allow meet to sit for a few minutes to soak up the juices before slicing. Enjoy!
