Pitmaster Ree has taken pork tenderloin to the next level. Stuffing it with some deeeeeclious Greek ingredients. Including feta and spinach. and the best bit?
It’s also wrapped in bacon, then smoked on a Traeger!!
It hits all the marks, juicy, crispy, salty, and bursting with a yummy stuffing!
Below you’ll see how to do it yourself, but I doubt anyone will get it looking as good as Ree!
But give it a try, because who knows, you might be the bacon wrapping master!
Making Yoiur Own Bacon?
If you want to make this extra tasty, you should smoke your own bacon. Once you have tried this you’ll never buy it from the supermarket again.
Step 1: Butterfly and Seaon The Pork Loin
Remove the silver from the tenderloin, then butterfly it. Season the meat on both sides, this will also help tenderize the meat, then set it aside.
Step 2: Fry off Stuffing Mixture
In a frying pan, melt butter. Add onion and garlic, sauté till tender, and the onion is translucent. Add spinach and cook until just wilted. Turn off heat. Add breadcrumbs, then mix in slowly.
Step 3: Add Stuffing and Roll Your Loin
Add the spinach mixture over tenderloin, add feta, sprinkle Romano or Parmesan over the mixture and roll it up. Place on top of the bacon and wrap.
Step 4: Smoke Your Loin
Smoke at 225°F until an internal temp of 145°F. Ree used a Traeger Pro 22 for this pork loin! Use a thermometer to monitor the temperature. If you don’t have one follow these steps.
Step 5: Rest and Serve
Remove from smoker and rest at least 20 minutes, then slice.

Do You Have Leftovers?
Lucky you! All the hungry kids in my house eat ALL this every time. But if you do serve it again, make sure it’s within 3-5 days of being in the fridge and warm up the pork loin right, due to the low-fat content it can end up dry.
