Serves 6.


1 1-pound whole pork tenderloin
6 slices thin sliced bacon

Carolina Mustard Sauce
3/4 cup prepared mustard
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons catsup
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon bottled hot pepper sauce
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Cooking Directions

Cut pork lengthwise into six 1/4-inch slices. Separate slices; place on cutting board (slices should be the size and shape of the bacon). Place a slice of bacon on each pork slice. Starting at one end, roll up into a spiral. Secure with 2 wooden toothpicks.

For Carolina Mustard Sauce, combine mustard, honey, vinegar, catsup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce in medium bowl. Reserve 1 cup of the sauce until ready to serve. Brush remaining sauce over pork. Combine pecans, salt and pepper in small bowl.

Cut each pork spiral in half to form 2 pinwheels (12 total) and the secure ends with water-soaked wooden skewers or metal skewers. Coat each pork spiral with pecan mixture.

Grill pinwheels on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-high heat (375-400 degrees F.) until pork is slightly pink in center, 6-8 minutes on each side. To serve, drizzle reserved sauce over pinwheels.

Serving Suggestions
Chris Lilly from Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q created this tenderloin dish. Serve with Beet, Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad (side dish category) and baked beans. You can also use these medallions as part of an appetizer buffet.
