Food Recipes Bacon-Wrapped Pork Loin With Cherries 3.7 (244) 5 Reviews Our Bacon-Wrapped Pork Loin is fancy enough for a weekend dinner party but (surprisingly) easy enough for a weeknight supper. You’ll spend 15 minutes prepping the pork loin before roasting it in the oven for nearly an hour. Aside from occasionally glazing the bacon-wrapped meat with sweet baste of currant jelly and red wine vinegar, you’re work is almost entirely done. The recipe yields perfectly cooked, moist pork, wrapped in crispy bacon with a sweet-and-salty layer of dried cherries, parsley, and mustard in between. Serve it with a side of mashed potatoes for some serious comfort food; or put it next to a green salad for a lighter meal.
