And there’s really not much to say other than “YUM.” I LOVE Smithfield®. We buy their ribs, their bacon, their lunch meat, their sausage, and their Marinated Fresh Pork. This is the BEST time of year for it. I think probably all times of year are perfect for Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork, but there’s something about a delicious and easy meal you can whip up in 30 minutes. My recipe is SO easy to prep and make, and it smells and tastes amazing.
Cassidy was working with a builder on our chicken coop (more like chicken palace) yesterday, and Scarlet had a friend over. It was cool out with a spring breeze that almost felt like autumn, and I knew I had to make something that would perk up the chicken coop builder, and get the attention of three busy kids. The “What’s For Dinner?” question is a big and annoying one in my household, and I’ll do whatever it takes to avoid it. How to avoid it?
First, I go to Walmart. I go there a few times a week anyway, and ours has an exquisite collection of Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork to inspire my favorite Bacon-Wrapped Pork recipe. For my busy family of four, Smithfield® creates easy weeknight and weekend meals, and delicious lunch leftovers (more on that later). Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is so flavorful, and comes in a variety of options. My recipe can be cooked in 30 minutes and it does not require a lot of ingredients! First, I go into the pork section of the deli to find Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Cracked Black Pepper Tenderloin. You can use any other flavor – I happen to love this one.
As I have mentioned, Smithfield® offers a variety of marinated fresh pork options to create easy weeknight and weekend meals. And wait until you see my leftover lunch “recipe” too. It’s REALLY good! These “Real Flavor, Real Fast” options are beneficial to my family. When I saw we’re busy, we are BUSY. Cassidy and I both work around the clock, and we also are currently building a strawberry garden, a chicken flock, and a chicken coop! Add the dog, the cat, and household errands, and dinner should be easy. Whether you like Tenderloins, Loin Filets, or Roasts, and whether you like them grilled, roasted, sautéed, and more – there’s an option. Here’s one of mine:
- 1 lb Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Cracked Peppercorn Tenderloin
- 5 bacon slices
- Preheat oven to 425°
- Remove Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork from wrapper
- Wrap pork loin with bacon slices, and secure with wooden picks
- Place loin in a foil-wrapped roasting pan or dish
- Bake for 25 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 155°
- Set oven to broil
- Broil 5 inches from heat for 3-5 minutes or until bacon is crisp
- Remove from oven and cover with foil
- Let stand for 10 minutes until thermometer says 160°
And, did I mention that Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork is 100% pork. You will love the smells and the tastes of this delicious, 30-minute bacon and pork-filled dinner. I’m so excited I have leftovers to enjoy today!
Speaking of which, wait until you try the leftovers the next day! Here’s my tip. Also, buy soft sandwich rolls. Then use a slice of bacon-wrapped pork loin as the meat of your sandwich. They cut into perfect tender circles. See?

Whoa, wait a minute. Did you just make delicious pig wrapped in EVEN MORE delicious pig?! I am totally sold, because well BACON! Yum!
Janine Huldie says
OK, I will let you in on a little secret, I don’t really care for pork. Don’t get me wrong, I like ham or bacon. But regular pork not so much. Yet, wrapping it in bacon is ingenious and might give me the incentive to like it! 🙂
I don’t think I’ve ever heard of Smithfield before, but it looks like I’ve been missing out. Ohhhhh I can’t wait to see the new chicken palace. I hate when people ask me what’s for dinner, I never answer, I always say its a surprise. This bacon wrapped pork looks delicious, I can’t believe it only takes 30 minutes to prepare.
Nice! I see these all the time in Walmart and never have picked one up. I may have to do that and make this recipe for my family one day soon. I love that it is a quick meal!
Yum about sums it up because that looks delicious!
There you go again, always teasing us with the yummy bacon. 😉
Oh my god! My mouth is watering up by looking at this. I really want to make this right now. Heading to the market to pick up the goods. It looks so yummy I want it in my tummy.
Bacon wrapped anything is excellent! I have bacon wrapped asparagus and hot dogs, but never a pork loin before. This looks like a good dinner recipe that I should make soon.

Bacon makes everything better! We already love those pork loins, so I didn’t know it was possible…but you have indeed gone and made it better. 🙂 I’m pretty sure no work got done on that chicken coop once the smell of this dinner started wafting out of the kitchen. Thanks for sharing! #client
Bacon just makes everything so much better! Love that this is a quick meal idea too!
Tami @ ThisMomsDelight says
I don’t know which is more tasty, bacon or pork. This is a double treat, for sure. Hubby and I will both enjoy dinner tonight and I will enjoy the leftovers while he is at work!
Tiara Wilson says
Oh my goodess. This just looks mouth watering. I am so trying to make this meal this week!
OMgoodness this looks so delicious! I’m sure my family would enjoy trying this, may make this for our Sunday dinner this weekend.
Censie Sawyer says
We enjoy Smithfield a lot. But I have never tried a recipe like this! I am totally making this next weekend. I know my whole family would love it!
You had my a bacon! I’m no stranger to Smithfield’s roasts. I love them! They’re great for a busy work week.
I love to cook pork loin. Why have I never thought of adding bacon before? Yum!
AnnMarie John says
Bacon makes everything look and taste so much better. The family would really enjoy this. I may have to make this.
Bites for Foodies says
I don’t eat meat, but this looks really good! The bacon and apples are a great combo! Five years ago, I would have eaten this! 😉
Tina Butler says
I am always on the hunt for more pork recipes and I love Smithfield meats. How could that not be good with bacon!!!
Marissa Zurfluh says
You had me at bacon. I have got to give this a try.
Mommy Hates Cooking says
You already had me at bacon, but when I saw just how easy this recipe was I knew this was a must try! Your pictures having my mouth salivating. This looks so good!
Dean @Mrs. AOK, A Work In Progress says
Oh my this looks wonderful. As you may know I’m married to a Midwestern man, and as wife to a this Midwestern man I have mastered the art of pork loin and mashed potatoes. 🙂 Bacon wrapped is like some next level 🙂
Bacon and Smithfield. A match made in heaven right there 🙂
I always appreciate a good use for bacon.
I love Smithfield pork tenderloin and tonight I just wrapped it bacon…it can only taste better..the smell already is Makin my tummy growl
