A zesty, flavorful take on an old favorite. Very easy to make in about an hour’s time! You could also top with diced jalapeno peppers, if desired.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Jamaican jerk seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®)
  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper, or to taste
  • 1 (1 1/2 pound) pork tenderloin
  • 4 slices bacon, or more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or more as needed
  • ½ medium sweet onion, diced

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. 2 Combine brown sugar, jerk seasoning, paprika, thyme, oregano, seafood seasoning, and crushed red pepper in a bowl; rub generously all over the tenderloin. Wrap with bacon and secure with toothpicks. Coat lightly with oil and place in a loaf pan or casserole dish. Sprinkle any remaining spice rub on top, cover with some diced onion, and surround with remaining onion.
  3. 3 Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven until pork is slightly pink in the center, 45 to 60 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Chef's Notes

You can use vegetable oil instead of olive, and seasoned salt instead of Old Bay(R).


  1. This is soo excellent. Love the spice mix. When I removed roast from oven I let it sit for 10 minutes then took off bacon and crisped it up in microwave for a minute. Everyone absolutely loved it.
