1 STUFFED PORK LOIN on Wed Jun 12, 2013 2:28 am

I'm planning to make some stuffed pork loin top with some bacon ... I'm not sure if I can weave the bacon or not, maybe just arrange it on top of the pork loin.. my question is, do I need to cover the pan with foil when I bake them in the oven? and if I want to tie it, what kind of string do I need and where to buy it Question

I just buy cotton string. I do have other string too. It is kinda coated with something? I also have 2 different thickness.I have had ,them, so long I don't remember where I bought them. You can get some in the hardware store or even at wal mart.

For me I don't cover with foil, but I guess it wouldn't hurt. at least first. Then uncover so the bacon cooks & browns. 

oh boy I bet this is going to be good.

Imelda, the bacon weave is easy to do.  Just weave it on a piece of plastic wrap on a sheet pan and then you can put it into the refrigerator to firm up.  After you season your pork loin then you can flip the bacon weave on the meat and tuck it or roll it on.  I don't think I would use foil unless the pork wasn't done and the bacon was getting brown....kind of a guessing game, depending on how large the pork is, etc.

Norm usually does a nice glaze of BBQ sauce on his, on his meatloaf.  I usually just do the bacon without a glaze.  

Oh, and I find the thin bacon cooks up nicer than thick when weaving....JMO

I usually look in the housewares aisle of my larger grocery store for cotton string.  Cotton is the main thing and not a synthetic or plastic coated string that would melt in high heat.

Make sure the string you buy is 'food safe'.  I always buy  mine at a kitchen store or BB&Beyond since I know it wasn't treated with chemicals that aren't food safe.
