Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Pork and Beans is a quick and easy recipe that is ready to enjoy in just 30 minutes!
I can’t tell you how much our family loves this recipe. We’ve made it multiple times in the past week alone!
It’s scorching hot outside, so this quick grilled dinner is exactly what I was looking for when I was searching Better Homes and Gardens website for a new recipe to make. The last thing I want to do is turn my oven on…
It’s going to be a long summer.
What I love most about this recipe is that I used a pork tenderloin.
It’s actually super tender and juicy guys! Especially when I wrap a piece of bacon around each pork medallion… winning!
Also – those beans! If you’ve ever had pork and beans, you’ll know what I’m talking about. Comfort food!
This recipe is for a quick and easy homemade beans that taste far better than their canned counterpart. I loved the fresh green onions and tomatoes in there, it really added a lot of delicious flavor.
I did make one minor tweak to the original recipe, so just head on over to BHG’s Delish Dish blog to check out what I did!
You’re going to love this simple and tasty recipe!
HELPFUL PRODUCTS TO MAKE THIS RECIPE:
Bacon-Wrapped Pork and Beans
- 1 pork loin fillet, 1 1/2 pound center-cut
- Ground black pepper
- 8 slices center-cut bacon
- 16 green onions
- 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
- 1 pinto beans, 16 ounce can, rinsed and drained
- 1/3 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- Cut pork loin crosswise into eight pieces. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Wrap one slice of bacon around each piece of pork; secure with a small skewer or wooden pick. For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan. Test for medium heat above pan. Place pork on grill rack over pan. Cover and grill for 20 minutes or until pork is slightly pink in center and juices run clear (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling.
- Meanwhile, chop four of the green onions; set aside. Place remaining onions on grill rack over coals. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes, turning occasionally until just tender.
- In a saucepan combine the chopped onions, tomatoes, beans, ketchup, the water, mustard and brown sugar. Bring to a boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer until pork is done. Serve with pork and green onions.
