Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin


Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin

Welcome to the March Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! So this month, I chose to make this Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin originally from The Cookie Writer

Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin

Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin

I love pork but for some reason due to my dry mouth from Sjogren’s I have a hard time swallowing it. I was looking for a recipe that would keep the pork moist. That’s when I came across this pin. Because it cooked in a marinade it was not only very flavorful but also much more moist than my usual recipe. And seriously, you can’t go wrong with bacon! It was delicious!  Thanks Kacey for a great recipe!

I changed up some of the ingredients and followed the directions with a few exceptions. Here is my version.

Ingredients:
  • 2 1/2 – 3 lb pork loin
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • Black pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (use GF sauce for gluten-free.)
  • 1 tbsp. spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1 lb red potatoes, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 lb fresh asparagus cut into pieces
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Put the pork loin in a roasting pan and score the top of the meat. Season with pepper. Arrange potatoes around the roast.
  2. Combine the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, mustard, vinegar, and honey into a small bowl. Stir together until combined. Pour half the mixture over the pork loin and potatoes. Take your bacon slices and cut them in half. Then wrap them over the pork. Pour on remaining sauce.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes then add the asparagus and stir in with potatoes. After another 30 minutes check the internal temperature. It should reach 145/150F. If your bacon starts looking dark before that time, cover pan with aluminum foil. If your bacon is not quite browned or the temp is not at least 145, cook for another 15 minutes. 
  4. Allow meat to sit for 15 minutes before slicing.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!

  2. I’m not a huge fan of pork because I do think it’s often dry and hard to chew but we’ll have to try this; it looks delicious and my boys always say that bacon makes everything better. Pinned.
