Publix had a BOGO (buy one get one) of pork tenderloin the other day. Love BOGO buys.
Anyway, decided to do a crock pot pork loin wrapped in bacon, garlic and brown sugar.
1 pork loin
1/2 package of center cut bacon
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons of garlic
Salt & Pepper
Pat the pork loin dry. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Cover (smear) with garlic and brown sugar over top. Wrap bacon (or you could lay it across) around the loin careful not to take off any of the garlic or brown sugar.
Cook on high for 4 to 5 hours in your crock pot. Do not add water, as you want the bacon to crisp.
So it was cooking well in the crock pot but not getting the bacon crispy. So I placed the Pork into a baking dish and placed in the oven at 350 degrees.
Rest for 10 to 15 minutes to allow the juices back into the loin.
Slice in 2-3 inch pieces, and serve warm.
It was good in flavor, although dry due to having to go from the crock pot to the oven. In the future, I would cook this in the oven, covered at first. Then to brown, uncovered for about 30 minutes.
