  3. Wrap the tenderloin with bacon strips. Then wrap the bacon wrapped tenderloin tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours.
  4. Remove the tenderloin from the refrigerator and let it sit out no more than an hour to allow it to come to room temperature.

  6. Sear tenderloin for 1 minute on all sides.
  7. Put tenderloin in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  8. Remove the tenderloin from the oven and place aside to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  9. Cook your vegetables in the same pan the tenderloin was cooked in so they can absorb the juices from the tenderloin.
  10. Garnish the tenderloin with cooked vegetables and right before you serve, add a few sprinkles of Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning. Enjoy!
