A moist and juicy cajun seasoned pork tenderloin wrapped in crispy bacon and glazed in an apricot dijon sauce! Sweet and salty pork perfection!
1½ pound pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoon brown sugar
6 strips bacon
3 tablespoons apricot preserves
1 tablespoon grainy Dijon mustard
Rub the pork tenderloin with the mixture of the Cajun seasoning and brown sugar and wrap it up in the bacon.
Heat an oven-safe skillet over medium heat, add the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin and cook until it is browned on all sides, about 10-15 minutes.
Transfer the pan to a preheated 400F/200C oven, roast until the pork reaches 140F, about 10-15 minutes, brushing on the mixture of the apricot preserves and mustard near the end before setting aside it to rest, covered, for 5 minutes.
