Slow Cooker Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin
Because bacon makes everything better, especially when it’s effortlessly slow cooked with a brown sugar glaze!
- 1/4 Cup Brown or Coconut Sugar
- 3 Garlic Cloves
- 1/2 tsp Dried Rosemary
- Sea Salt and Pepper
- 3 lb Boneless Pork Loin
- 2 Tbsp Olive or Avocado Oil
- 6 Slices Bacon
- 1 Sprig Rosemary
- 1/4 Cup Fig, Plum or other favorite jam
- 1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
- 1 Tbsp Whole Grain Mustard
- Fresh Orange Zest
In a small bowl, combine fig jam, mustards and orange zest; set aside. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. Season pork loin with brown sugar mixture, rubbing in thoroughly on all sides.
Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add pork loin, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from pan to a plate.
Starting on 1 side, lay a slice of bacon, crosswise, on top of the pork, laying another slice to slightly overlap the first. Continue with remaining slices until fully covered.
Place pork loin into a 6-qt slow cooker; top with fig jam mixture. Cover and cook on low heat for 3-4 hours, or until completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 140 degrees F. Serve immediately, garnished with rosemary, if desired.
