You can get nice little Pork Loin Roasts in the supermarket almost any day of the week. But what do you do with such small pieces of meat? They’ll dry out on ‘roast’ and it seems a waste to simply cut them into chops. But the Slow Cooker shines when it comes to making Loin Roast magic!
Here’s what you need…
8 strips Bacon
1 tbsp. / 15 ml Canola Oil
4 cloves Garlic, minced or pressed
1 tsp / 5 ml Rosemary
1 tsp / 5 ml Thyme
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
Salt and Pepper
Your Pork Loin should be whatever size comfortably fits your Cooker, without having to jam it in..
What you do…
It’s pretty simple…
Rub the Roast with Salt, Pepper and Brown Sugar and place the bottom of the Cooker.
Drape the Bacon over the roast to cover the top.
Sprinkle the Herbs and Garlic over the Roast ans drizzle with the Canola Oil. Olive Oil can be used, if you wish.
Cook covered on Low for 4-5 hours or until the Pork is fork tender.
Remove Pork from Cooker and let rest under a foil tent for 15 minutes before slicing.
This Roast is great with Baked, Mashed or Hashbrown Potatoes. It’s a really nice blend of Sweet and savoury… There’s no sauce, so you can mix and match with outboard sauces of your choice! (I know the ‘juice’ looks tantalizing, but it’s 90 per cent fat!)
