Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce

Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce--So easy with only 4 ingredients. A real man-pleaser!

Looking for an easy recipe for a special dinner or celebration meal?  May I suggest you pin or print this one. With only 4 ingredients (pepper doesn’t count), you won’t even need a recipe after making it the first time. Furthermore, your guests are going to feel extra blessed when you bring this gorgeous Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce to the table.

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

About the cream cheese stuffing (which is not at all difficult to accomplish), consider it 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.

A big thanks to my friend Scooter, of Scooter’s Spaghetti fame, who shared this recipe with me a couple weeks ago. My husband went crazy for it. I recently served it to my sister who was in town from Alabama with her husband, and they also pronounced it a winner. I hope you and the people you are cooking for will, too.

 

Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce--So easy with only 4 ingredients. A real man-pleaser!

NOTES:

1. I highly recommend covering 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. If you live near a Braum’s store, you might try their bacon. It cooks up beautifully. (It also microwaves nicely for a BLT.)

3. I didn’t specify amounts on the raspberry chipotle sauce. 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 serves 3-4 carnivores but is 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 come to mind.

Author:
Recipe type: entree
Serves: 3-4 servings
 
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 ¾ 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.

Paula July 1, 2016 at 5:00 pm

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

Michelle May 26, 2016 at 5:31 pm

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

Paula June 8, 2016 at 8:35 pm

I’m not familiar with that sauce but think I need to find some. Thanks for writing.

Danny December 27, 2015 at 1:34 pm

Thank u for this great recipe we made it for Christmas eve and we absolutely loved it I posted on Instagram and I had so many people asked me about it at my church and even after for days people text me and ask me how to do it I give u all the credit try so much it was great

Shawna September 12, 2015 at 5:26 pm

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!

Paula September 13, 2015 at 3:38 pm

Good to know, Shawna.

Kyle April 6, 2015 at 12:58 pm

I sure enjoyed eating this for Easter. Yum!

Lisa March 9, 2015 at 3:41 pm

I’ve ordered this sauce from both their website and from amazon for almost 10 years! Costco got us hooked but then stopped carrying it in our neck of the woods. I tend to buy a years supply and then use it mostly on salmon. One sure fired way to get everyone eating the fish! Paula, your pork tenderloin is on my must cook list as soon as I pick up some cream cheese! Thank you for sharing all your great ideas!

Paula March 21, 2015 at 6:07 pm

Lisa,
I tried your suggestion to use it on salmon. OH MY GOODNESS! Loved it. Will be doing that from now on. Thanks so much for sharing.

Barbara March 2, 2015 at 10:36 am

My hubby just came in for a taste test. I put a tablespoon each of mine and the Bronco Bob’s on a small plate and didn’t tell him which is which. He prefers mine, he says, and we’ve loved the Bronco Bob in the past. I do too; it has more body and more flavor. I first mixed 20 drops of the Chipotle Tabasco to a tablespoon of preserves, but did the math for a cup full, making it a bit less hot for those who aren’t accustomed to it. I’ll be making lots; this is outrageously delicious! I’d love for you to try it and test for yourself! It’s a lot less expensive to make your own. We’re seniors on a Social Security budget, so that’s important to us.

Barbara March 2, 2015 at 10:07 am

I just tried this, and it is exceptional:

Add 3 teaspoons Chipotle Tabasco to a cup of red raspberry preserves. That would be a little light for us, and I’d add a few more drops of the Tabasco, but I think it is a very close approximation of the Bronco Bob’s version of raspberry chipotle sauce, which is extremely good. I really can’t tell much difference between mine and theirs, but my mixture is a bit thicker so it will cling well. We love a little heat and go through a full bottle of the Chipotle Tabasco every month. It’s much milder than the regular Tabasco, and we love Mexican/Tex Mex cuisine most. I hadn’t gotten around to putting any of the raspberry sauce on meats yet, so I’m looking forward to that, and probably tonight. Thank you!

Barbara March 2, 2015 at 9:09 am

Thanks, Paula. Wow, and ouch, though – $17.99 is awfully expensive for just one bottle. I think I’ll do a bit of experimentation in the kitchen to see if I can make some myself. I don’t believe it would be too difficult, actually. I’ll let you know if I get some I like!

Paula March 2, 2015 at 9:51 am

Barbara,
17.99 is for a 40-ounce bottle, unless I read it wrong. You will only need about 6-8 ounces per tenderloin. 40 ounces will go a long way. I have seen it at Costco if you have one close to you. Of course, you never know if you can find something at Costco from one week to the next.

Barbara March 2, 2015 at 7:49 am

The only raspberry chipotle sauce I have ever seen was at World Market, and that’s 70 miles from where I live. It’s incredible on cream cheese and spread on crackers, but I’ve not cooked with it. What brand do you use? I can ask my local grocery stores to carry it if I have the name. I know we’d love this, and I’d really love to buy more but we don’t go to Daytona very often!

Paula March 2, 2015 at 8:15 am

Barbara,
I put a link on the post where you can order Fischer and Wieser online. http://www.amazon.com/Fischer-Wieser-Razzpotle-Raspberry-Chipotle/dp/B000TTDDWE

Catherine Remkus March 1, 2015 at 5:56 pm

Just tried this and it is wonderful! Easy and fool-proof but tastes like you spent hours on it! I found the sauce at Kroger’s. And I used the reduced fat cream cheese. My new favorite recipe!

Paula March 2, 2015 at 8:13 am

Hi Catherine,
Thanks for the testimonial. Scooter and I were wondering about using the reduced fat cream cheese. Good to know it works fine.

Stephanie February 28, 2015 at 4:33 pm

This looks incredible. My boyfriend has a business trip next week – this will be his homecoming meal!! Thank you. I hope I can find the sauce.

Paula March 1, 2015 at 7:10 am

I bet you can find it. There’s always Amazon.

Nia April 13, 2016 at 4:31 pm

I made my sauce at home by mixing raspberry jam and chipotle sauce until i got a flavour i liked.

scooter February 28, 2015 at 3:48 pm

I have probably made this 10 times. It is always delicious but never this pretty. I will keep trying. I wrestle with the bacon to get it closed that neatly. Do you wrap each piece around twice? Do you think reduced fat cream cheese would work? Never tried it but wanted to. I will also try the Braums bacon.

Paula March 1, 2015 at 7:14 am

Scooter,
Maybe your bacon is too thick? Braums is sliced fairly thin. Each piece comes up and over with enough to tuck under. I didn’t have any trouble.

Yes, I think the reduced fat cream cheese would work. Not sure about the taste but might not matter because there is so much other flavor going on in this delicious creation with the raspberry chipotle sauce and the bacon.

Erik s May 6, 2016 at 7:44 pm

Scooter Baking twine to wrap it

Paula February 28, 2015 at 10:45 am

We enjoy a pork tenderloin every once in awhile. Done it in the oven and on the rotisserie but have yet to try it like this. Looks absolutely scrumptious!

Gaey February 28, 2015 at 4:53 am

Wow! Looks and sounds amazing.

Betty February 27, 2015 at 9:31 pm

Oh my! This really looks good! I’m putting this on the menu for next weekend- can’t wait for that “come hither” aroma. 🙂 Did you get that Texas snow? Keep warm!
