We’re of the opinion that everything tastes better when wrapped in bacon, and this spicy pork roast is no exception. The spice rub, which can easily be adjusted to suit your palate, adds plenty of pizzazz to the meat, and the blanket of bacon ensures that the meat stays moist and tender. Best of all, it only requires 15 minutes of effort.–Angie Zoobkoff

Prepare the oven

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

Make the spice rub

In a small bowl combine all the spices and mix well. Rub the spice mixture all over the pork roast.

Make the pork roast

Slick a rimmed baking sheet with oil, or line with aluminum foil. Place the pork roast on the baking sheet and wrap it with bacon. Transfer to the oven and roast until the internal temperature reaches 145 to 150°F (60 to 70°C); 50 to 60 minutes for a pork rib roast or 30 to 35 minutes for a pork tenderloin. Cover loosely with foil and rest for 10 minutes before slicing, oohing, and aahing.

Recipe Testers' Reviews

I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome of this bacon wrapped pork roast. It was very tender, juicy and did have a more robust flavor than my usual favorite. We all loved the spice rub, and of course, the bacon! And, did I mention the house smelled wonderful while it was roasting? A definite keeper!

Prep work was super easy. It took all of 10 minutes to get the roast ready and into the oven.

I served the roast pork with individual potato Gruyere gratins and sautéed shallot and green beans.

This was so simple to put together that I actually made it while camping using a trailer oven. I loved how easily it came together and my whole family loved the flavor of the spicy pork, including my 10 year old. Of course, anything wrapped in bacon is pretty much guaranteed to win over my family. Definitely easy enough to put together on a weeknight but nice enough for company.

We used a pork roast and found it was perfectly cooked in just under an hour.
