About Me

My photo
Welcome to my ScandinAsian food blog. A blog about what I like to make in my little Norweigan kitchen, from homemade meals to fun creative sandwiches. My parents gave me the name Sorieya, a Cambodian name, which means sun. I'm originally from the United States. Now I'm currently living in Norway, married to a Norwegian man with 3 beautiful children. It's hard being away from my family back in the States and I miss them everyday. I am not an artist but I love making fun sandwiches for my kids. I am not a professional chef but I love to cook and I love being in the kitchen. I love introducing my children to different kind of international food, introducing food from my childhood and explaining to my kids the history about their culture and food. I love spending those quality time together teaching my little ones how to make bread, Khmer food, and teaching me Norwegian. My Norwegian isn't that great but I do understand just the basics but speaking it, that's another story.

Bacon Wrapped Maple Pork Tenderloin

Last Sunday was grilling day at a family gathering. I had pork in the fridge which we bought in Sweden. So I marinaded it with Maine maple syrup, garlic, Worcestershire's sauce, thyme....wrapped around with bacon.

For marinade
1/2 or 1 tablespoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
salt & ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
dash cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
3 tablespoons Maine Maple Syrup
Worcestershire's sauce
1/2 tablespoon any citrus (optional)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1lb pork tenderloin, cut into 1/2 inch slices

In a container combine the first 10 ingredients. Add pork and mix well. Then wrap each marinade pork with bacon. Place back in container, covered, refrigerate, and let marinade for 2 hours. Grill or cook in a non stick skillet.


  1. At what degree are you supposed to cook this at and for how long?

    1. I just made these for family BBQ. One of my family memebers had grilled them for about 15 mintues on a grill (flipping once). I sliced into 5 portion so it would cook faster too.

      Instead of grilling, you could sear bacon wrapped pork tenderloin in a large skillet. Before searing, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lay the bacon wrapped into the frying pan, seam down. Sear for couple minutes on each side before placing in the oven.
      Let the bacon wrap pork roast for 25+ minutes. Take the roast out of the oven and set on a rack, leave uncovered for about 10 minutes before slicing.

      Hope it works out.
