HONEY MUSTARD BACON & PORK MEDALLIONS
Yield: 10 servings
2 pork tenderloins
1 pound thick bacon slices
1/3 cup honey mustard, divided
Preheat the grill to high with the lid closed (See alternative oven method below). Meanwhile, slice the tenderloins into thin strips lengthwise. Lay each strip on a piece of bacon and smear with honey mustard, using a total of about 3 tablespoons. Roll with the bacon on the outside and secure with a couple of toothpicks. Place on the hot grill and cook for 10 minutes, basting with half of the remaining honey mustard. Turn and cook another 10 minutes, basting with the remaining honey mustard. Remove from the grill and let rest 5 minutes before serving warm.
Alternative Oven Method: Preheat the broiler to high and position the rack in the upper third of the oven. Line the bottom broiler pan with foil and grease the top rack. Place the prepared pork medallions on the rack around 2 inches apart. Broil for 5 minutes, then turn, baste with the honey mustard and broil 5 minutes longer. Test with an instant read thermometer. You want the pork to reach 145 degrees. Rest and serve warm.
