We cooked a peameal bacon coated in mustard, brown sugar and maple syrup then basted with orange juice.  This was a recipe that we got from a vendor at St. Lawrence Market in Toronto.

    Looks great! What is a peameal bacon? Looks like a pork loin.

    My thoughts exactly but I thought maybe being a newbe, I had so much to learn and everyone else knew. It does look great.

    I guess outside of Canada they call it Canadian Bacon, I think it is a cured pork loin rolled in corn meal.  It is often fried as slices but can also be roasted whole like we did, the caramelization of the brown sugar and maple syrup give it a unique flavour when roasted whole.

    looks awesome Gerhard. any chance you can post the recipe? was actually just having a conversation with the in-laws if this was possible - curious if the cornmeal would burn.

    Cornmeal won't burn unless you crank the egg past 450 or so or expose to direct heat.

  • These would make an incredible breakfast sandwich. I think apple and/or hickory would match very well with this roast. A worthwhile suggestion is to make your slices and toss them back on the egg for some quick grill marks and they will taste even better. Happy July 4th and holiday weekend friends!
