Impressive: This is an impressive and fun recipe to serve for a dinner party as it seems really fancy, but you can easily make this ahead of time and let it back up until dinner is ready to be served.

Organic Pork: There are not many options for organic pork out there, but I use both organic pork tenderloin and organic pork bacon in this recipe and it is so good, definitely worth the splurge!

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

To make the pork tenderloin: Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place an oven safe baking rack on top of a rimmed baking sheet.

Place the bacon on the baking rack and bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until some fat has rendered, but the bacon is still soft enough to mold and has not started to brown yet. Remove from the oven.

Step 2

After bacon is removed, increase the oven temperature to 450°F.

Step 3

In a small bowl, add the sea salt, pepper, thyme, garlic powder, and onion powder and mix together. Set aside. Pat dry the pork tenderloin with paper towels. Using a pastry brush, brush the mustard over the tenderloin to coat completely. Sprinkle the spice mix on all sides.

Step 4

Lay the bacon slightly overlapping each piece on the baking rack. Place the tenderloin on top of the bacon on one side and roll to the opposite side to wrap the tenderloin in the bacon.

Step 5

Place in the middle of the baking rack and bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the internal temperature is 145°F. Allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 6

To make the asparagus: In a medium bowl, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. In a large skillet sauté over medium/high heat until al dente, about 5 minutes. Squeeze lemon juice on top before serving.

Step 7

Slice the tenderloin into medallions the width of the bacon slices, about 1-inch. Serve with asparagus.
