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.
- 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
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.
