4 servings


  • ¼ cup cherry preserves, large pieces snipped

  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar

  • 1 pound natural pork tenderloin

  • 10 slices lower sodium, less fat bacon

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 8 ounces green beans, trimmed if desired

  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ cup sliced almonds, toasted


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a shallow roasting pan with foil. Place a rack on top of foil; set pan aside. In a small bowl stir together cherry preserves and vinegar; set aside.

  2. Trim fat from tenderloin. Lay bacon side by side on a work surface, overlapping slightly. Place tenderloin crosswise on bacon and roll up, wrapping bacon around tenderloin. Place, bacon ends down, on rack in the prepared roasting pan. Roast 20 minutes. Brush top of wrapped tenderloin with preserves mixture. Roast 5 to 10 minutes more or until bacon is crisp and an instant-read thermometer inserted in tenderloin registers 145 degrees F. Remove from oven; let stand 3 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add green beans; cook and stir 3 to 5 minutes or just until crisp-tender. Add broth, honey and salt. Cook and stir about 3 minutes more or until liquid is nearly evaporated. Stir in almonds.

  4. Slice wrapped tenderloin and serve with green beans.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
