Ingredients

  • 3

    cloves garlic, smashed into a paste

  • 2

    tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary

  • 1 1/2

    tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage

  • 2

    teaspoons whole fennel seeds, lightly toasted adn coarsely ground

  • Pinch crushed red pepper

  • Coarse salt and black pepper

  • 1

    boneless pork loin (4 lbs)

  • 8

    slices bacon

Directions

In a bowl, combine the garlic, rosemary, sage, fennel, crushed red pepper, 2 tsp. coarse salt and a generous pinch black pepper. Rub the mixture over the pork, cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight. Let the pork sit at room temperature for about 1 hour. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees . Set a rack in a roasting pan and transfer the pork, fat side up, to the rack. Wrap the slices of bacon crosswise around the pork, overlapping slightly. Roast the pork until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 145 degrees , about 1 1/2 hours. Transfer to a carving board with a moat and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.
