You just can’t go wrong with this combination. Mimi’s recipe calls for the bacon wrapped roast to be baked at a much lower temperature than I would normally expect. I baked this roast at 275 F for an hour and 15 minutes and it was gloriously tender and cooked to perfection. I have never had a pork roast that melted in your mouth like this! Because the roast is so tender, the bacon on the outside adds a lovely bit of crunch to balance it out. I turned on my broiler for just a minute or so before I took it out of the oven to allow the bacon to crisp a little more.
The roast is served sliced with the roasted garlic to accompany it.
Next, the garlic mashed potatoes….again, what’s not to love?
We had this meal as a Sunday family dinner. I know I will make this recipe again. Absolute comfort food!
I’m not able to share this recipe here, but it can be found in Mimi Thorisson’s cookbook: A Kitchen in France
