Whiskey Pork with Apples

Whiskey Pork with Apples
3 lbs. boneless Raley's pork tenderloin
1 lb. Raley's Thick Cut Bacon
3/4 cup Bushmills or Jameson Irish Whiskey
1/2 cup chicken stock
2 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. spicy brown mustard
2 medium green apples, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 shallots, thinly sliced
Freshly ground sea salt and pepper to taste
Chopped fresh rosemary (optional)

Prep: 20 minutes, Cook: about 45 minutes, Serves: 8

1. Wrap pork tenderloin in bacon, securing ends with toothpicks. Cook in a very large skillet over medium-high heat for 10 minutes or until nicely browned on all sides. Remove from skillet and drain excess grease.

2. Add remaining ingredients except rosemary to skillet and bring to a boil. Place pork back in skillet and tent with foil. Cook over medium-low heat for 30 minutes more or until pork reaches 145°F internally, turning once or twice. Remove pork and keep warm; cook sauce until excess liquid has cooked off and it’s slightly thickened.

3. Remove toothpicks from pork and slice 1/2-inch thick. Transfer to a platter and sprinkle with rosemary, if you like. Serve with sauce.
