Bacon Maple Pork Tenderloin Recipe.

Smoky bacon and sweet maple syrup give this pork tenderloin a richness that the lean meat alone just wouldn’t have. And chili powder and Dijon mustard add the perfect touch of autumnal bite on top of the heartier savory flavors. It’s a filling, warming centerpiece for the table at this time of year, and it’s actually pretty simple to make.
