Preparing the pork tenderloin

  • Trim off any excess fat that is surrounding the meat. Once the excess fat has been trimmed off, the silver skin must be removed.

  • Placing a two overlapping cling film on a kitchen top or flat surface. Using a slender, sharp knife parallel to the surface, cut the tenderloin horizontally in half, starting on one long side and cutting almost all the way through to the opposite side, stopping about 1/2 inch from the edge. Open the piece of meat as you would a book.
  • Do the same with the other tenderloin. Place the two pork loin side by side with the other one overlapping the other for about 1 inch.
  • Place another cling film on top of the meat and pound it gently with the side of a heavy cleaver or with a kitchen hammer to make a rectangle uniformly about 1/2 inch thick.

Making the bacon-wrapped pork loin

  • Carefully roll up the tenderloin along with the cling film at the bottom. Seal the cling film and roll some more to make the rolled pork firm. Chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

  • While waiting for the rolled pork you can prepare the bacon. Place cling film on a flat surface and lay out the bacon side by side with an overlapping each other. NOTE: Cling film should be longer than the bacon.
  • Take the rolled pork from the fridge and carefully place it at the edge of the bacon lengthwise seam facing down. Holding the cling film, slowly roll up the bacon and pork until you get the other end. Then take sides of the cling film and roll some so the bacon will stick firmly.

  • Take an aluminum foil about 12 inches in length and fold 3 times. Place the wrapped pork on top and lift the sides of the foil to cover the roast as shown in the photo. Tie up the roll with cooking twine to hold into place the bacon.
