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.

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.

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.

    Looks good buddy! How hot did you cook. I like to do them at 250 or so.
