Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce

Raspberry-Chipotle-Bacon-Wrapped-Pork-Tenderloin--sliced

Consider yourself warned about the come-hither aroma wafting from your oven as this bakes.  I promise you. Every man, woman, and child within whiffing distance of your kitchen will be begging for a sample.

Recipe Inspiration

A big thanks to my friend Scooter, of Scooter’s Spaghetti fame, who shared this recipe with me a few weeks ago. My husband went crazy for it.

I recently served this stuffed tenderloin to my sister who was in town from Alabama with her husband. They pronounced it a winner. I hope you and the people at your dinner table will enjoy it, too.

Why the cream cheese filling?

Consider the cream cheese a built-in condiment. The contrast between the mild and creamy cheese, the crispy bacon, and the sweet and spicy sauce will have your taste-buds begging for more.

The bacon combined with raspberry chipotle sauce and pork makes for an exquisite sweet, salty, smoky flavor.

Tips for Making Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce

#1

Cover your pan or baking dish with foil (include the sides).

You’ll thank me when it comes time to do the dishes.

#2 

Don’t use thick-sliced bacon.

Thin bacon gets nice and crispy which is what you want. If you live near a Braum’s store, you might try their thin bacon. It cooks up beautifully. (It also microwaves nicely for a BLT.)

 #3 

In regard to the amount of raspberry chipotle sauce.

I didn’t specify an amount in the recipe. Go sparingly if you don’t like a lot of spicy heat. Be generous if you do. Serve with extra sauce on the side if you live in Texas. I have only tried Fischer and Wieser raspberry chipotle sauce because I’ve been told it’s the best.

#4   

The recipe as written serves 3-4 carnivores.

It can be easily doubled, tripled, or more.

#5   

Put your dinner over the top by serving homemade slider buns to make miniature sandwiches.

My Favorite Dinner Rolls or Sweet Potato Dinner Rolls are really good.

Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce

Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce

Yield: 3-4 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours 20 minutes

Pork tenderloin stuffed with cream cheese gets wrapped with bacon and bathed in Raspberry-Chipotle Sauce. The aroma in the house while this bakes is enough to make this recipe the grand champion of the year.

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon (not thick sliced)
  • 1 pork tenderloin, 1 to 1-1/2 pound
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • Half of a 15.75 ounce bottle of raspberry chipotle sauce
  • Freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  1. Cover small cookie sheet or shallow baking dish or pan with foil, preferably non-stick. Be sure foil goes up and over the sides with no seams. You will thank me when it comes time for clean-up.
  2. Lay 4 slices of bacon on cookie sheet with space the width of bacon between each strip. See picture above.
  3. Carefully trim any fat or silverskin from tenderloin.
  4. Butterfly tenderloin down the middle, cutting about 3/4 of the way through the meat. Lay it out on top of bacon.
  5. Place cream cheese down the middle. Cover with raspberry chipotle sauce.
  6. Fold tenderloin back up so that cream cheese is enveloped and wrap tenderloin with bacon. Tuck the ends under. Use extra bacon if necessary to cover tenderloin.
  7. Season with freshly ground pepper.
  8. Baste entire bacon-wrapped tenderloin with enough raspberry chipotle sauce to cover but not so much that it drips excessively onto the cookie sheet.
  9. Bake in 300 degree F oven for 2-3 hours. Begin checking at 2 or even before if your tenderloin is small and/or your bacon is really thin. Bacon should be well-cooked and evenly browned all over.
  10. After removing from the oven, cover loosely with foil and allow to rest 5-10 minutes before slicing.

You can find it in the international foods aisle at the grocery store. I like it because it's lower in sugars than most of the other brands. I was going to try and post a picture, but it won't let me. You can find it on Google.

I find it in the aisle with barbecue sauces at my local Krogers. Have seen it at Costco in the past but not recently.

This was an awesome recipe! Since hubby can't have raspberry sauce (fruit allergy), I used Hokan Chili sauce with Garlic. It was fantastic!!

I found several brands of raspberry Chipotle sauce at Market street and I also tried Barbaras suggestion of adding Chipotle sauce to red raspberry preserves, both excellent! Thank you for this awesome recipe, sounds fancy but super easy!
