Bourbon st. pork loin

1 pork loin

1/2 cup of Tony's seasoning

1/2 cup Italian dressing

3/4 cup plain bread crumbs

3 tablespoons finely chopped garlic

1 cup green onions, chopped

1 large onion, sliced into 1/8-inch rounds

1/2 cup pecan halves

1 cup honey

Dry rub the tenderloins inside and out with Tony's. Next, lightly wet the tenderloins with Italian dressing. Cut the tenderloins down the middle and place the opened tenderloins on a cutting board on the counter. Make a medium dry mixture of the bread crumbs and the rest of the Italian dressing. Apply a layer of this mixture to the top of the bottom half of the tenderloins.

Apply the garlic to the top of this layer. Add a layer of the green onions. Completely cover this layer with a layer of sliced onions. Place the pecan halves on top of the onions. Put the top half of the tenderloin on top of the bottom half and lace it up with string to prevent it from falling apart.

Coat entire tenderloins with honey. Put in a pan and place in refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours. It can be left in the refrigerator overnight.

Remove from refrigerator 1 hour before cooking. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place in oven lightly covered for 40 minutes, then uncovered for 10-20 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest for 15 minutes. Remove string. Cut into 1/2-inch slices and serve.
