Pork Tenderloin with Bacon-Onion Sauce

I got to try this meal last week and thought it was so good that I asked for the recipe right away.  I made it this week and was just as happy with it!  The tenderloin is so juicy and so easy to make.  The sauce is a very tasty companion to the loin.  This got a thumbs up from everyone in my family.  Yay!  :)

Pork Tenderloin
2-3 lbs. tenderloin
salt/pepper to taste
Sprinkle salt and pepper on tenderloin.  Sear meat 4 minutes per side in large skillet.  Bake at 400º for 30-35 minutes.

Bacon-Onion Sauce
6 slices bacon, cut into small pieces
1/2 c. diced onion
1 T. minced shallots
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c. red wine
1 c. chicken broth
1 T. grass-fed butter
In large skillet, brown bacon until crispy.  Remove from pan and set aside.  Use bacon fat to cook onion.  Saute for 2 minutes.  Add shallots and garlic, cook for 1 minute.  Add red wine, bring to boil.  Add chicken broth and cook until liquid is reduced by 1/3.  Remove from heat.  Stir in butter and bacon.  Serve over cut up pork tenderloin.
