    Bergy's Note:

    This a quick easy way to BBQ your pork tenderloin and it stretches quite far too. Use any spice mixture that you like; I love Fennel spice Fennel Spice, and have included it in this recipe. It goes well with the pork as well as lamb.

    Units: US | Metric

    • fennel, spice : (use only 2 teaspoons, store remainder)
    • 1 cup fennel seed
    • 3 tablespoons coriander seeds
    • 2 tablespoons white peppercorns
    • 3 tablespoons kosher salt


    • 1 pork tenderloin (approximately 5 inch long and 3 inch diameter, cut into 6 medallions each approximately 3/4 inch eac)
    • 3 slices bacon, cut in half
    • 2 skewers, long enough to hold 3 medallions side by side approximately 9-inch if using bamboo skewers soak them


    1. 1
      Fennel Spice:
    2. 2
      Put the fennel seeds, coriander seeds, and peppercorns in a heavy pan over medium heat.
    3. 3
      Watch carefully, tossing frequently so the seeds toast evenly.
    4. 4
      When light brown and fragrant, pour the seeds onto a plate to cool. They must be cool before grinding or they will gum up the blades.
    5. 5
      Pour the seeds into a blender and add the kosher salt.
    6. 6
      Blend to a fine powder, shaking the blender occasionally to redistribute the seeds.
    7. 7
      Store in a tightly sealed glass jar in a cool, dry place, or freeze.
    8. 8
      Assembling the Skewers:
    9. 9
      Rub both sides of the pork medallions with the spice rub.
    10. 10
      Take a 1/2 slice of bacon and wrap it around the outer edge of each medallion.
    11. 11
      Secure it by pushing a skewer right through the middle of the medallion; place 3 medallions on each skewer.
    12. 12
      You should now have 3 round pieces of pork showing, the bacon from one medallion touching the next one (see picture) on each skewer.
    13. 13
      Barbecue on High heat; flip after 4 minutes; continue cooking until browned and cooked.

      OMG, I love pork tenderlions and these were sooo good! I didnt use the fennel spice, but marinaded them in a combo of soy, olive oil, garlic, slat pepper for about 2 hours, then wrapped the bacon and grilled. Wonderful, so flavorful and melted in your mouth. Thanks Bergy!
