BOOOOOM!!!

What a week, it feels like I’m being shot out of a cannon I tell ya.  I am truly trying to procrastinate a trip to the grocery store like nobody’s business so let’s talk more about food from the dinner party, k?  I don’t want to think about present or future meals until later tonight when Thanksgiving prep starts.  Also, I’m not sure what I advocate for more – riding pigs for leisure or eating them in 2 separate ways at the same time!

Bookmark, print, or pin this recipe for next week – when you can’t shove another bite of turkey in your face and you are dying for something different!  Alternatively, this would be an awesome Thanksgiving centerpiece if you are skipping the tryptophan coma.

Bacon Wrapped Pork Roast with Brown Sugar Glaze:

BSBPorkRoast

Pork:

  • 3 lb. pork roast
  • 5-6 pieces bacon, uncooked
  • 1/2 t. chili powder
  • 1/4 t. paprika
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1/4 t. cumin
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon

First, you make a rub out of all the spices and use your hands to rub the blend into the whole rinse and towel-dried roast.  Then, you bard aka wrap the roast with the uncooked bacon slices.  Pop it in the oven at 375F for 1 hour.

About 15 minutes before the roast is due to come out, assemble the glaze in a small pot.

Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 T. flour
  • 1 T. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 t. mustard powder

Simmer the above ingredients until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is smooth.  Pour the glaze over the roast evenly and cook it 30 minutes longer, or until your meat thermometer reads 160F.

I let the roast rest while we drank wine and had appetizers, so when we were ready to eat it was waiting for us!

    This sounds (and looks) amazeballs. Not the healthiest thing to eat after a long weekend of binge-eating turkey, but man oh man… BACON.

    I’m kind of geeking out about this.

      It was so good!! It actually didn’t seem that heavy because it’s sliced into thinner pieces. You get the great sweet and smokey taste, but without feeling like you just stuffed your face at Golden Corral. Bonus!
