Sweet Rosemary Glazed Pork
This Sweet Rosemary Glazed Pork recipe is one I shared in the past here on the blog I’ve made some updates and wanted to share it again this holiday season!
One of my favorite proteins to work with is a pork loin roast. It is an affordable cut of meat that works well on our budget. Not only is it inexpensive, but it is full of flavor and easily prepared.
I typically pick up a two or three of these loin roasts when I find them on sale. Stocking up the freezer on sale weeks makes it easier to save money on those weeks when the sales are less attractive.
My husband and son are particularly fond of pork so we eat it often and finding new ways to prepare it is a must for this girl.
Unlike the men in my house, I don’t enjoy eating the same recipes over and over. I likes variety and lots of it! So I am always looking for ways to cook this pork for my family and still keep myself from getting burned out on it.
Bacon Makes Everything Better
So as if the pork loin roast was not enough, I decided what better way to jazz up a roast than to add bacon! After all, I don’t know about you but we love bacon and believe it can make anything taste amazing.
In fact, I would be willing to wager that it could even make cardboard more appetizing, but I can’t say that I am willing to find out so let’s just say it’s true and get back to this yummy recipe!
The bacon plays a few different roles here in this recipe. One, it keeps this pork loin roast moist and juicy. The pork loin roast gets dry if overcooked so the bacon is a welcome safety net!
The second role of the bacon is in the beauty of this dish. Trust me, when you wrap bacon around this roast and glaze it, the bacon “blanket” becomes this amazing caramelized thing of beauty.
I mean, just look at all that brown roasted goodness, don’t you just want to dive in?
You guys know the saying from Chef Anne Burrell (Food Network Chef) right, “brown food tastes good”? If not, now you do, ha!
Well, that statement is certainly the case here. The brown crispy bacon wrapped around beautifully tender and juicy pork loin is a little piece of heaven.
Oh, be still my beating heart! Just take another look at that pork, you guys! Such a simple recipe but when you pull it out of the oven to serve just get ready to wow your family or guest because nobody can resist the aromas or sight of this “porky” goodness.
This recipe is low carb and a THM “S”. This recipe is not something I make every week or even every month, but when I am ready for a special treat or have guests coming this is a favorite recipe to bring out! I love serving it with a mashed cauliflower and a lite salad to finish the meal out. So good!
It would also make a great way to change-up your holiday table if you are looking for a change from the classic ham this year! You won’t be sorry you tried it!
