What a quick and easy pork fillet recipe! My fillet was the usual fairly thin pork fillet. Like most other reviewers I could not find the sauce specified in the original recipe, but scoured the -- looks like hundreds! -- sauce bottles in my supermarket, and eventually bought "A1 Supreme Garlic Sauce". It was a bit too strong in the sauce, so I thinned it considerably with white wine, and that tasted just great. I also used more bacon, as I was worried about drying out the meat. As winter does not seem to want to leave us this year in South Africa, I roasted the meat in the oven -- nothing would persuade DH to start any kind of grill fire! (It's very damp and chilly after yet another night of rain!) Apart from the veggies I made chips and a salad with it. (Okay, that should be french fries for the US cooks, LOL!) Thanks for the easy recipe! I think it would be nice with any good bottled sauce.

This is delicious! I used garlic roasted alfredo sauce, and added extra bacon, and this was wonderful cooked outside on the grill. Thanks so much for posting this great pork loin recipe! Made for Zaar 123 Hit Wonders.

This was really good. I followed the recipe as stated except I added some Tony's Cajun spice to the meat just before grilling and made my own alfredo sauce, Mean Chef's Fettuccine Alfredo. I'll be making this again. Thanks for posting.

This is one of the best pork recipes I've tried in a long time. I admit I used twice as much bacon ;), but it really kept the meat moist and the flavor was outstanding. I used Bacon and Tomato Sauce Bacon and Tomato Sauce for Pasta for the marinade, since we can't get the Leggo sauce here. It was great as a marinade but we didn't like it so much served ON the pork. The sauce is worth making though, (if you can't get the Leggo sauce) because I feel that the marinating had much to do the flavor and tenderness of the pork. My 11 daughter who normally hates pork (but loves bacon) really gobbled this up. Thanks for sharing this recipe...I was looking for a new way to prepare pork and I found it! Note: if you do make your own tomato bacon sauce, I would suggest using crushed tomatoes, instead of chopped tomatoes like I did; it seemed too chunky for this recipe. P.S. I made this in the oven, not the grill.
