Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin

My Daughter LOVES pork and for her the idea of wrapping bacon around a pork roast was as exciting as a bucket of Halloween candy.  

1 pork loin roast
Thick cut bacon 
1/3 cup soy sauce 
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper flacks 
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar 

Wrap the pork loin in bacon. Place in an cast iron pan.  Combine rest of ingredients in a small bowl; stir well.   brush the sauce on the bacon wrapped loin and place in a preheated 375 degree oven.  Bake until the pork loin reaches 150 degrees inside, basting with the sauce every 20 minutes or so.  If the bacon starts to darken too quickly, tent the roast with tin foil.

once the pork has reached an internal temperature of 150 degrees remove from oven and let rest for 15 to 20 minutes before slicing.   

I served this with roasted cauliflower and mashed potatoes.
