Pork Roast with Bacon and Baharat Spice Blend
Serves 4 to 6
Boneless pork roast, about 3 pounds
2-3 teaspoons Baharat spice blend of choice
1 tablespoon olive oil
7-8 slices bacon
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Trim the outer layer of fat from the pork roast and place the roast on a rack in a small roasting pan or baking dish.
- In a small bowl, mix the Baharat spice blend with the olive oil. Spread the mixture all over the pork roast to coat evenly.
- Wrap the roast crosswise with the bacon slices to cover the roast. Roast in the oven for 1 1/2 hours, about 30 minutes per pound.
- After 1 1/2 hours, turn the oven to broil, raise the oven rack so the roast will be about 4 inches from the heat source, and broil the roast until the bacon is browned and crisp. Transfer pan to a rack or the stove top and let the roast rest for 10-15 minutes. Cut into slices and serve with the pan juices drizzled over the pork.
