Heston Blake shares his special recipe for bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin, as part of Good Day Charlotte's "What's Your Dish?" series.



  • One package of bacon (1 lb)
  • Pork loin/tenderloin
  • Broccoli (fresh or Frozen)
  • 6 red potatoes
  • 1 stick of butter
  • Lawry's or other seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2/3 cup of Milk
  • Sharp cheddar cheese
  • Garlic (optional)
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce- (Cholula, Texas Pete, etc.)


  1. Cut away any silver skin on pork. Rinse with water and pat dry.
  2. Cut two, 24 in. long pieces of plastic wrap and overlap.
  3. Place bacon in overlapping layers to create a mat.
  4. Place pork tenderloin on the bacon closest to you and begin to carefully roll up the bacon.
  5. Let set up in fridge for up to 4 hours. Then remove plastic and place on un-greased cooking pan/cookie sheet.
  6. Place in preheated 400 degree oven for 30 minutes or until an instant read thermometer reads 145 degrees.
  7. Remove the meat and cover with foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes. (You could also sear the bacon wrapped loin and place it in a crock pot for several hours [maybe 4 hours-check temp])
