What is in Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin?

ingredients to make bacon wrapped pork tenderloin
  • The stars of the show in this dish are the pork tenderloin that is seasoned with garlic powder, cumin, onion powder, smoked paprika, and salt. Bacon is wrapped around the tenderloin which not only infused a smoky flavor, but keeps the meat moist. Extra flavor is added to the pork tenderloin by making small slits in the meat to add in slices of garlic. Optional but recommended BBQ is brushed on the tenderloins.
