Gail's Story

Today I was going through my "junk" drawer looking for a specific recipe for my husband's cousin's meatloaf. Never did find it but I did find this recipe and made it for Sunday dinner with mashed potatoes and green beans.


1 pkg
boneless pork loin (4-6 lbs)
4-6 slice
1 tsp
chili powder
1/2 tsp
1 1/2 tsp
1/2 tsp
black pepper, coarse ground
1/2 tsp
cumin (ground)
1 tsp
cinnamon (ground) or 1/2 tsp depending on preference
1 c
light brown sugar, packed
2 Tbsp
2 Tbsp
apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp
dry mustard

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350F.
Place pork loin in a roasting pan. Combine the RUB ingredients and rub over the pork. NOTE* My husband prefers less cinnamon.
Cut each strip of bacon in half crosswise and lay them over the pork loin. Roast (uncovered) for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until pork reaches 150 degrees.
Meanwhile, combine the brown sugar, flour, cider vinegar and dry mustard in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer and simmer for about a minute and one-half. Pour over the pork and return to oven. Roast for about 15 to 20 minutes longer, or until pork registers 160 degrees. NOTE: I bought one with a pop-up timer.

Ran across this recipe trying to find something different than the way I usually fix pork loin. So, I had all the stuff, and just finished the prep work. It'll go in the oven in about an hour. We can't wait! My husband said it looked "killer" when he saw sitting on the counter!

I am sure the measurements are right. The only thing that I can think of is maybe the glaze may have been cooked a little longer which made it thicker. This is the original recipe that I found in a clipping. I haven't had any problems with it. I did adjust the cinnamon for my husband because he thought it was a little too much. Thank you for trying it, Theresa.

I tried the recipe and it was pretty good. The one thing I felt was off was the glaze. I followed the ingredients exactly and it was really thick! When it was time to put it on the pork it wouldn't pour out or even spread onto the meat. It had to be put on so thick that it was too much sweet in one bite. I don't know what went wrong are you sure the measurements are right?? I cooked it just like it said so I am puzzled by this.
