Roasted Pork Loin with Brussel Sprouts

It's a simple straight -up cook.  First I took some garlic and chopped it fine.  I added salt, pepper and rosemary and made a paste with it.

I cut slits into the loin and stuffed the garlic rosemary paste into the slits. 

image

I tried to wrap the loin in a bacon weave, however I goofed when I listened to my inner cheapskate.  I bought the Spartan Store brand bacon for $3.65 and not the name brand.  I got part of a weave made, but the bacon I bought wouldn't peel off without breaking apart.  So I wrapped it as best as I could and tried it up with string.

Onto the egg it goes 350 degrees indirect.  First the brussel sprouts down low.

And now the loin. 

image

I took the sprouts off earlier and kept them warm in the large box in the kitchen.  The loin is at 138 here so I pulled it.

After resting, the juices over flows the cutting board.

Here's the money shot.

It was delicious!  Thank you for looking.

    Great looking meal! I always do my sprouts direct; we like a little char on them :)

    That looks awesome! The sprouts done in bacon/pork drippings are making me drool.

    Thanks! I didn't want to risk the bacon drippings catching fire. Do you cook the sprouts in a regular pan or one with holes in it?

    I use the square wok pan with the holes... Also use it for my peppers and asparagus. I have a smaller version of it that I just tried earlier this week with the small red potatoes, worked great

    Looks good Freddie, even with the cheap bacon. I love me some pork loin.

  • That looks delicious. Glad you were able to work around the bacon problem.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.
