Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Spray a broiler pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium heat, turning occasionally, until bacon begins to brown but is still flexible, about 5 minutes. Mix apple butter, honey, allspice, and chili powder in a small bowl.
  3. Wrap tenderloin in 4 slices of partially-cooked bacon and secure with toothpicks. Brush half the apple butter mixture over bacon and wrap the tenderloin with remaining slices of bacon. Brush remaining apple butter mixture over the meat. Place tenderloin on prepared broiling pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until apple butter mixture has baked into a glaze and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the tenderloin reads at least 145 degrees F (65 degrees C), about 30 minutes.

This came out great! Okay, I'm a sci-fi fan, so I had to make it into a "roast sand-worm" as you can see from the photo, but everyone loved it. Pear butter makes a good substitute for apple butter, too.

flavor did seem to penetrate past the top 1/16 of the surface of the pork. Will try a few changes next time to infuse the pork with more of the flavor

So yummy and easy. Like another reviewer said, I had to increase cook time and temp but that just depends on the size of your pork loin. I will be making this again!

Being slightly inept at cooking I probably didn't manage this quite right (in terms of arranging the bacon) but overall it came out great. Seems to be a pretty forgiving recipe! I did increase the temp and cooking time. The bacon becomes almost "candied" and was a really nice addition.

Tried this tonight, the flavour was awesome. I had 2 smaller tenderloin pieces that were 3lbs together, but they were partially frozen still, so time to cook was longer than recipe stated (but understandable). The flavour was fabulous! I didn't have maple bacon, but the apple butter and honey were very thick, so I added some pure maple syrup to the glaze which gave a nice hit of maple flavour. Will definitely do this one again!

Yummy! Had to really adjust the cooking time. I had a 3.5lb roast and it took 1 1/2 hours on 350 degrees. The glaze got a little dark (probably because of the cooking time) so I would cover it next time for the first half of cooking, but will definitely make again!!

Absolutely loved it. Rave reviews from the family. The apple butter compliments the meat very well... did have to increase bake time and adjust oven temp, but will deffinately make again. Very easy prep for a luscious meal. Thanks!
