SLOW COOKER BACON WRAPPED PORK LOIN

SLOW COOKER BACON WRAPPED PORK LOIN

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 (3-pound) boneless pork loin, excess fat trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 sprig rosemary

FOR THE GLAZE

  • 1/4 cup fig jam
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • Zest of 1 orange

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a small bowl, combine fig jam, mustards and orange zest; set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Serve immediately, garnished with rosemary, if desired.
