I received some coupons from Hormel Foods recently for their Always Tender line of meats and I bought a pork roast and had no idea what to do with it. I was so excited to find their recipe page and found this awesome recipe and wanted to share! We invited my parents and aunt over and everybody gave rave reviews!
Bacon, Herb and Garlic Pork Roast with Carrots and Onions
1 tablespoon light olive oil
3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves
3/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
3/4 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground sage
6 slices Black Label® Bacon
3 cups ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots
Heat oven to 375°F. Coat 13x9-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
In bowl, stir together oil, garlic, rosemary, thyme, basil, salt and sage. Place pork roast in baking pan; spread with 1 tablespoon herb mixture. Lay strips of bacon, overlapping if necessary, over top of roast; tuck ends underneath.
In large bowl, stir together carrots, onions and remaining herb mixture. Spoon carrot mixture around roast.
Bake pork roast, stirring vegetables, 1 hour 10 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 150°F. Cover with aluminum foil; let stand 15 minutes or until temperature reaches 160°F.
Serve pork roast with potatoes and salad.
