Deeeelish!May 19, 2013 By mickeylu
Found this recipe a couple of years ago and made it for the first time for Christmas dinner. Really a bad idea to use guests as guinea pigs for a new recipe, but I did! Turned out fabulous (lucky me!) I've been making it ever since. Followed the recipe to a tee, but I did one thing different to start out. I brined the roast overnight, then rinsed it off (so it wouldn't be too salty from the brine) and patted it dry. Got this tip from Guy Fieri, because I always tend to over cook pork (got that from my mom!) It comes out so tender, moist and juicy you can't believe it. Also, I always use bone-in roasts because there's so much more flavor from the bones. Absolutely wonderful recipe that I'll make over and over (like today's dinner!) I even do bone-in pork chops like this now because the flavor is unbeatable!

excellentDecember 14, 2010 By ann21222
I made this because I had a pork roast and my husband doesnt like sauerkraut, so i needed something different and it was Excellent. Everyone loved it , the kids, the husband and myself. I did add honey to the glaze and didnt have the vinegar so i used white cooking wine instead but it was delicious. yummy ! :)

Just PerfectSeptember 03, 2010 By szipkin
This dinner was delicious! I used a 2 1/2 pound pork roast and it was done completely in a little over 1 hour. The glaze over top of the bacon was very yummy. I served it with mashed potatoes and corn. My 4 year old son and 1 year old son loved it and kept asking for more food. Definitely will make this again. All in all a wonderful homemade meal that took a little over 1 hour to make. I would recommend this to anyone!

Great recipe different waysMay 23, 2010 By elmstart
This recipe is wonderful. My super picky husband loved it and so do I. I don't stock paprika and have made it many times without (no harm done). Also, many times I have skipped the glaze because the dish is just as good without it. My sincere praises to the person who provided this recipe.

Wonderful pork loinFebruary 03, 2010 By SuzannNJ
I tried this recipe for dinner tonight. It was excellent...moist, not dry as pork can easily become. The brown sugar topping on the bacon caramelized and was so delicious. Will definitely make this one again.

I was a little skeptical, but turns out that I was pleasantly surprised. My daughter, who will be married in the spring said that she definitely wanted to add this recipe to her collection.

Yummy!June 29, 2009 By rajsmommy
I made this a couple of weeks ago and omg so delicious! I am making it again tonight! Instead of making the spices on here I used Mccormick pork rub mixed in a little garlic salt and some brown sugar, before I put the glaze on I took off the bacon put some glaze on the pork then put the bacon back on top to cook the other side that started off pork side down then put some more glaze on top of the bacon and finished cooking!

IncredibleJune 13, 2009 By ScottSocialMediaAllen
This turned out spectacular - positively some of the best meat I've ever eaten. The pork was perfectly tender, not dry as loin roasts can so easily get. I was also surprised at the chili powder and cumin in the rub - afraid it was going to taste Mexican, but it didn't at all - just a nice spice to it. Everyone in the family loved it. I'm making it again today!

Lose the baconMay 20, 2009 By adriennhughes
I made this last night and the flavor was great. The bacon however caught most of the glaze and made the bacon super wonderful but left a lot of the roast with little flavor. Next time I'm going to not use the bacon.

I prepared this recipe last night for my sister and her family, and it was awesome. I have never really cooked a roast before, so I was a little nervous about it, but it came out perfect and everyone enjoyed every bite. My brother-in-law especially enjoyed the bacon. I will definetely make this again.

Phenominal!February 01, 2009 By dawnkirkwood
I am not a fan of pork roast usually. In fact, I told my husband to pull a pot roast from the freezer not a pork roast. When I realized the pork roast was thawed, I went looking for a new recipe to try and found this. This was a huge hit and even I loved it. Extremely flavorful. The only change I made was to add some water to the glaze when I was making it as it was awfully thick and was not something that I could ""spoon"" over the roast.

This was a great recipe--easy enough for a workday but seemed ""fancy"". Loved the spicyness of the rub and the bacon. And the brown sugar glaze added a nice contrast. It's a keeper!
