I’m having one of those weeks where I HATE everyone. And everything. It’s just that time of the month and life won’t quit. There’s really nothing to complain about, but I still hate things. So you know what I’ve done? Eaten a bag of gluten free chocolate covered pretzels and the man took me to sushi. Mood cured. It took a couple stuffingmyface sessions, but I got there. Who knew a gluten free chocolate covered pretzel could stop road rage.

Did you watch the CMA’s last night? I didn’t think it was possible to fall in love with Justin Timberlake even more, but it is. He gave me the giggles last night during his performance on the CMA’s. What a gem. He just walks in, all adorable-like, then kills it. With anything he does. I think I legit have a crush on this man. If I saw him in person, my palms would be so sweaty. Who knew he would fit in so well at a country awards show while Fall Out Boy left everyone scratching their heads. So weird. Also, why is it that everyone at CMA’s loves each other, is supportive and is smiling the entire time? Then you watch the VMA’s and the only person smiling the whole time is Taylor Swift. Who came from country. Does all other music breed unhappy people? I may have to listen to only country from now on, I like those happy people. I want that energy.

Guess what I’ve been doing? Lasering off my sun spotted face recently. As I mentioned on Tuesday, I’m feeling old as f*ck now. My skin looks different, my hangovers seem to never end, and I just ache. And I know it’s just gonna get worse. So I’m trying to turn back some time, by getting rid of the sun spots on my face. I’ve been seeing this awesome lady who is 39 and looks maybe 22, maybe, all because of her skin routine. She has a baby face. I want her baby face. Have you ever tried lasers? Sometimes they don’t feel the best. Like popping a rubber band on your skin….right under your eyeballs. But it’s totally worth it. You wake up the next day with coffee looking grounds all over and then they slowly disappear, revealing less spots and a younger looking face. At least to me. So if you come to my website one day to expect me and see a 15 year old, don’t worry, it’s still me boo boo. I plan on looking 8 years old in at least 3 years. Should be interesting for my fiancé.

Now wait, we need to talk about this recipe. Because I truly loooooove it. This orange chili sauce gets thick and has so much flavor and would be perfect on top of anything, so be sure to try it with other stuff. But it’s simply amazing with this pork and I couldn’t stop dipping it while I was trying to photograph it. Go make this right now, don’t think, just go!!

Orange Chili Glazed Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin

  • Yield: 3-4 1x
Scale

Ingredients

For the sauce

  • 2 cups orange juice
  • ½ cup coconut aminos
  • 1 heaping tablespoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon fish sauce
  • zest of ½ an orange (about ½ tablespoon of zest)
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

For the tenderloin

  • 11 1/2 pound pork tenderloin
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/23/4 pound bacon (about 78 strips of bacon)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place all ingredients for sauce in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Whisk to combine then let reduce for 20-25 minutes. It will reduce by a third and coat the back of a spoon when ready.
  3. Once sauce is on the stove, mix together spices. Pat tenderloin dry then spread spices evenly on tenderloin. Wrap bacon around tenderloin, securing ends with toothpicks.
  4. Place a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, sear bacon wrapped tenderloin on all sides, for about 3-4 minutes per side until bacon is golden brown.
  5. Once seared, put cast iron skillet directly into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, until tenderloin reaches an internal temperature of 140 degrees F.
  6. Let tenderloin rest for 5 minutes then slice and pour orange chili sauce on top.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Do you need coconut aminos? I have Braggs Amino Acids.
    We are not paleo… fell off the wagon but want to get back on.
    This recipe looks heavenly!!!

  2. I did laser hair removal. PCOS made me grow a man beard so I got it all lasered off. Worth every freaking penny. It took 18 sessions (seriously not kidding about the man beard). The chin hairs still grow, but it’s much finer and not so, like, 5 o’clock shadow.

    Anyway. I support the lasering. You do you, Juli Bauer.

  3. Who is your laser skin gal? Please share because I also have some pesky sun spots that need to go away… like now.

    Recipe looks delish and I can’t wait to give it a try this weekend.

    Thanks for sharing the awesomeness.

  4. Hello Juli,
    I am in need of laser treatment also. I live in the Denver area, could you let me know who you went to?

    Thanks,
    Tracy

  5. I lasered my spots for years . Haven’t had to for 2 yrs,now, due to my skincare routine. The laser is anazing! Use it, then start protecting and repairing. I’m 50, but you’d never know by looking at my face. Bronzer is a must in summer now. 🙂 sunblock with zinc daily, indoors or out! Wish I knew all this YEARS ago! Juli, your skin tone will continue to improve for a while post -laser. Enjoy. 🙂

  6. Juli, mouthwatering already – hope you don’t mind me reblogging this and I can’t wait to make it. Hope your week got better, mine certainly did once I saw this!

  7. I made this last night. It was really really delish. The sauce was a little spicier than expected but that’s totally not a bad thing. Thanks for posting the recipe. I enjoy your site and your books.

  8. Long time reader, but I think first time commentator.

    This pork loin was AWESOME!!

    Thanks for all your recipes, enjoy your wit as well.

  9. This has to be my new favorite way to fix a pork loin! Thanks so much for always putting out great recipes. Love your blog and books!

  10. Yummmmmm! So I made this last night and it was amazing!! My husband said that it was the best dinner I’ve ever made. It did not turn out as pretty as your picture but it sure was amazing!! Love your blog and your wonderful recipes!

  11. WOW! That was PHENOMENAL! The sauce was killer. I only used 1 1/4 c fresh OJ, and a combo of chipotle, ancho and crushed red chili because I like it hot! And I put chili in the rub as well. We had 1 lb and a few oz for 2 of us and ate it all up! And I thought there would be leftovers…Not! Thanks Juli- you’re the bomb!

  12. SO DELICIOUS! We cooked it to 140 and it wasn’t cooked all the way through, so we threw it back in and cooked it till it read 165. I can’t wait to invite people over so I can make this for them!

  13. and here I thought I was the only grown ass woman who still profusely sweats around certain guys!!! JT is my future baby daddy, just so you know 😉

    is there a website where I can order these coconut aminos? I’m military stationed overseas so I struggle to find some of the ingredients from time to time but this recipe…. well, you had me at bacon. Can’t wait to try this one!!!

  14. So, OMG! This recipe is amazing!!! My family and friends went crazy for it. So delicious and easy. We were all drinking the sauce up from our plates! I paired it with roasted carrots, parsnips, and sweet potatoes with bacon (of course) and had the sauce on them too, so delicious. Thank you! I’ve never made anything I didn’t love from your site. No wonder you call it paleomg!

  15. I made the sauce for an Asian cauliflower rice bowl and it was delicious! I fresh squeezed orange juice and for some reason I didn’t have chili powder. I substituted half the amount called for cayenne pepper. It was so good! This will be a go to sauce for me! Thanks Juli!
