Introducing my Bacon Wrapped Pork Roast!
First, you will need: 1 pork roast (This one says “ribeye roast.”) Preheat your oven to 375°F
Heat 2 tbsp. olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Brown the meat on all sides like this (takes about 8-10 min overall):
Remove from heat. Rub on some seasoning. (Careful! It's hot) In this case: a little thyme (fresh if you have it), some Cajun seasoning (like: Slap Ya Mama or Tony Cachere’s), fresh ground black pepper.
|No salt: You use Cachere’s like salt.|
Time for some BACON!!!! I used thick-sliced, peppered bacon. Wrap that baby in bacon. Leave no roast showing! You don’t want him to feel naked do you? Good, I didn’t think so…. Secure the bacon with twine.
Place the wrapped roast in a roasting pan on a bed of onion slices. Then, pop into the oven, uncovered. Bake until the inside reaches 145°F on your meat thermometer. Took mine about 45 min.
Never said I was a twine tying expert, did I ?
Ta-da! Now, you can remove from the pan to rest. And use the dripping to make a sauce. Add about 1 cup of white wine to pan to deglaze. You can use stock if you prefer not to use alcohol.
The finish product served with homemade mashed potatoes.
