Sweet Bacon Wrapped Deer Tenderloin



3 cups brown sugar
2 cups soy sauce
2 lbs. deer tenderloin (can substitute pork or beef)
1/2 lb. bacon
1/4 cup white sugar


In a bowl, mix brown sugar and soy sauce to make a thick, sticky brown paste. Put tenderloin in a cooking tray and pour the brown sugar mixture over the meat. Roll loin in the mixture to coat completely. Allow meat to marinate at least 3 hours or overnight in the refrigerator. Remove the loin from the tray and place on a slotted baking sheet with a drip pan or aluminum foil underneath to catch drippings. Reserve marinade. Wrap a piece of bacon around the end of the loin, securing it with a toothpick. Repeat this process until the entire loin is wrapped in 10 or so bacon loops. (The loin will look like an arm with wrist watches along its length.) Drizzle remaining marinade over the loin. Cover the loin and bacon strips in a thin coating of white sugar. Bake on center rack of oven at 350 F for 30-40 minutes. Slice to serve.
