This spiced bacon-wrapped pork loin is finished with a tangy, seasoned brown sugar glaze. Serve this flavorful roast with mashed potatoes, corn, and a tossed salad.

Ingredients

  • 1 5 to 6 pound boneless pork loin
  • 4 to 6 slices bacon
  • For the Rub Mixture:
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper (coarse ground)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin (ground)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • For the Glaze:
  • 1 cup brown sugar (light, packed)
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

Steps to Make It

Heat oven to 350 F.

Place pork loin in a roasting pan. Combine the rub ingredients and rub over the pork.

Cut each strip of bacon in half crosswise and lay them over the pork loin.

Roast for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until the pork registers about 150 F.

In the meantime, combine the brown sugar, flour, cider vinegar, and dry mustard in a saucepan.

Bring to a simmer and simmer for about 1 minute. Spoon over the pork and return to the oven.

Roast for about 15 to 20 minutes longer, or until pork registers 160 F.
