Ingredients for 12
4-5 pound pork loin
12 strips thick cut bacon
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1/2 cup of your favorite pork rub or seasoning
1/2 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce
Set Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 145°F / 63°C
Trim pork loin of any loose/excess fat.
Lay bacon strips on parchment paper, as close together as possible without overlapping. Spread mustard over bacon, and sprinkle with half of the seasoning rub.
Lay pork loin on bacon.
Wrap bacon around pork, securing ends alongside. The vacuum seal will help "set" the bacon.
Bag up pork loin into a large vacuum bag, or if needed you can cut the loin in two to fit in a gallon size ziplock bag. Cook for 4.5 hours.
Remove cooked pork loin from bag, dry thoroughly, and place on an elevated baking rack. Apply BBQ sauce to exterior, along with remaining seasoning.
Roast at 350F for 20-30 minutes in oven until bacon is crispy. Check every 10 minutes until bacon is desired consistency.
Using the bacon strips as guides, slice into 1" thick medallions and serve!
