Bacon-wrapped pork.  Have you ever heard more glorious words?  Our family loves a good pork loin roast, but when you wrap it in bacon it becomes even more epic.  Everything is better with bacon right?  Well, this pork gets taken to a whole different delicious level!

Pork happens at least once a week at our house because it is so affordable for families.  According to the National Retail Report, 2017 shows fresh pork loin roast averaging $4.46 a pound compared to 2016 at $3.88 per pound.  At such a great price it makes buying pork an even easier decision and it’s no wonder that it is doubling as the most requested meat in restaurants.

The holidays are the perfect time to celebrate with pork.  I wanted to get creative with this recipe and really deliver big flavor with every bite.  I love cooking pork in the slow cooker and it is especially amazing when it is wrapped in bacon.  The bacon helps to keep it moist as it slow cooks.  This pork finishes off being so incredibly juicy and tender!

How long do you cook a pork loin roast in a crockpot?

Cover and cook your bacon-wrapped pork loin roast on low in a crockpot for 4 hours.  It should reach an internal temperature of 145 F (with a light pink center)  and 160 degrees F, followed by a three minute rest.

Once the pork is finished cooking in the slow cooker you prepare the glaze.  This glaze is going to completely blow you away with its flavor.   It is sweet maple syrup combined with a spicy brown mustard, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce.  The bacon-wrapped pork slow cooks in the amazing sauce and then you thicken the sauce, spread it on top of the pork and let it caramelize the sauce and bacon.  The sticky caramelized maple mustard glaze on top of this pork is incredible.  It is the perfect finishing touch!

This meal is going to knock your socks off.  You are going to love it just as much as we did and it will become a new family fave!

  1. I made this recipe for our Christmas dinner tonight. Oh my, it was so good, turned out so moist and flavorful. All 10 of us thought this was one of the best pork roasts we have ever had! Thank you!


  2. This was delicious! The bacon gave the pork a wonderful, smoky flavor. At four hours, my pork registered close to 190 degrees, but the meat didn’t taste dry at all. Next time, though, I will check the temperature a tad earlier. Thank you for a wonderful recipe.

  3. Does the bacon crisp under the broiler, or does it retain a softer texture from the moist heat cooking method? I am thinking my kids might enjoy this more if I adapted it to carefully oven roasting, then glazing and broiling. Thanks for your considered opinion.
