Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin

This pork tenderloin is so juicy and damp. Tenderloin is a lean cut of pork, so it takes advantage of the fat from the bacon. I utilize center-cut bacon, which is leaner than other cuts because it’s cut from the stubborn belly. If you wish to serve it with something sweet, this would be terrific with apricot jam or sweet chile sauce on the side.

What temperature should I prepare pork tenderloin?

Prepare pork tenderloin at 400F degrees in the air fryer for 10 minutes. Then turn the meat over and prepare for 8 to 10 minutes up until the internal temperature level reaches 145-150 degrees.

How do you wrap meat in bacon?

To wrap pork in bacon, you’ll need some kitchen string, but toothpicks would also work if that’s all you have.

  • Cut two bacon strips in half and lay two halves next to each other, then four full strips, and then the other two halves.
  • Place the tenderloin over the bacon.
  • Tightly roll up the pork jelly-roll style, starting with a long side.
  • Tie the roast at 2-inch intervals with kitchen string to keep the bacon from shrinking and falling off, each about 12-inches long.

What to Serve with Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin

This bacon-wrapped pork would be delicious with just about anything from Baked Sweet Potato, Roasted Radishes, Smashed Sweet Potatoes or Bussels sprouts.

This quick and simple Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin cooked in the air fryer is perfect for weeknight dinners and packed with so much flavor!

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pork tenderloin, about 1 1/2 lbs
  • 6 center cut strips bacon
  • cooking string
  • Season pork with salt and pepper. Lay the bacon on a cutting board to be roughly the same size as the tenderloin.

  • Cut two bacon strips in half (since the ends are thinner, they don’t need a whole strip). Lay two halves next to each other, then four full strips, then the other two halves next to each other.

  • Carefully lay the tenderloin over the bacon. Tightly roll up the pork jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Tie the roast at 2- inch intervals with kitchen string each about 12-inches long.

  • Carefully cut the tenderloin in half to fit in the air fryer.

  • Put the tenderloin inside and fry at 400 F for 20 minutes turning halfway, up until an immediate read thermometer placed into the center checks out 145-150 F. Let the pork rest about 5 minutes prior to slicing. Slice into 12 pieces.

Optional: Serve with grain mustard, fig jam, sweet chile sauce, etc.
