Preparation Time: 15 mins
Cooking Time: 30 mins
2 pork tenderloins (each about ¾ to 1 lb/350 to 500 g)
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
6 slices bacon, halved
1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil
1 bag (650 g) McCain® Sweet Potato Plank Fries
Beet and Goat Cheese Salad:
3 beets, peeled and cut into 8 wedges
1/3 cup (75 mL) olive oil
1/2 tsp (2 mL) each salt and pepper
6 cups (1.5 L) arugula
3 tbsp (45 mL) rice wine vinegar
1 tsp (5 mL) honey
1/3 cup (75 mL) finely crumbled goat cheese
1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 425˚F (220˚C). Tuck the small end of tenderloin underneath to create even thickness. Cut each tenderloin into 6 medallions; season with salt.
Wrap bacon slice around each medallion; secure with butcher's twine. In large ovenproof grill pan, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown pork on all sides for 10 minutes or until top and bottom are well marked and bacon is crisp. Transfer to baking sheet; roast for 8 to 10 minutes or until instant-read thermometer registers 155°F (68°C) when inserted into centre of pork and bacon is crisp. Tent with foil to keep warm.
Bake McCain® Sweet Potato Plank Fries according to package directions.
Beet and Goat Cheese Salad: Meanwhile, toss beets with 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the olive oil; season with half of the salt and pepper. Transfer to baking dish; roast in 425˚F (220˚C) oven for 30 minutes or until tender.
Toss arugula with rice wine vinegar, honey, and remaining oil, salt and pepper; arrange on serving dish. Top with roasted beets, goat cheese and walnuts.
Remove string from medallions. Serve with Beet and Goat Cheese Salad and McCain® Sweet Potato Plank Fries.
Tip: If you don't have a large skillet, avoid overcrowding the pan by cooking in batches.
This was a great recipe! And so easy to customize! I found the salad a little oily, so I added more salad to it. Also, I feel like 30 minutes cooking the beets is too long. But I will definitely make this again. Maybe I will roast the beets first and THEN slice it into the salad. But everything else was great!
J'ai décidé de faire cette recette lors d'une soirée ente amis. Je peux vous dire que les convives ont adorés. Facile èa réaliser. Les patates douces bien cuites avec le reste des aliments se combinent parfaitement! Décilicieusement parfait!
Talk about of bite of summer! Beets and goat cheese are my favourites and with a side of sweet potato you can clear any guilt from your mind because with this meal, you're eating healthy tonight!
Finally had the chance to try out this recipe! We love making bacon wrapped tenderloin as a treat once and awhile and this recipe was a hit! I am not a giant fan of sweet potato fries but I did enjoy them with this recipe. The salad was amazing and we can't wait to make it again soon. We will definitely try the sweet potatoes again in the future and see some other fun ways to spice them up.
always looking for a new recipe to bring to my sisters house we are in competition this one is a must so good even your mother would like it because her daughter cooked it for her
I made this over the weekend and I must say it was pretty tasty and not that hard to make. I am a big fan of sweet potatos and these fries were delicious. The tenderloin turned out amazing and I found that the beet and goat cheese really worked well together. This recipe is a keeper for me!
I made this for a friend weekend party. It's not difficult to make and would be okay to make on a busy night since cook times were not too long. Everything was gone from the party and few people was asking for the receipt.
This recipe was the absolute best one yet my personal favorite was the Beet and Goat Cheese Salad. I highly recommend this recipe to everyone to try! I will definitely be making this particular one again and again. Everything paired perfectly together
Great and quick and easy to make recipe for the whole family
looks fancy too ;)
the bacon wrapped added extra flavour of bacon to the pork tenderloin which sometimes can taste bland
but it was great bacon wrapped, depending on diet that week mayb continue to bacon wrap or not :)
the goat cheese salad was good too, for those who are picky with goat cheese i put cheese on the side and gave option of feta for those who prefer the feta
but salad in genetal had lots of flavour and the beets gave such nutrient value
the plank fries of the sweet potato gave addedfun kick, to make us full too haha
but great recipe and easy to make
made this for a family dinner. it was easy enough to make and would be okay to make on a busy night since cook times were not too long. the only thing I changed was goat cheese I didn't have so used some crumbled fet instead
