We loved this Slow Cooker Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin. It reminded us a lot of our favorite porchetta appetizer. That appetizer is served with a fig jam. It is amazing. Since the pork loin had the flavors of porchetta, I decided to add a simple dijon fig jam glaze to the slow cooker. OMG! SO good! Make sure you spoon some of those yummy juices over the cooked pork loin. You don’t want to waste them!
The bacon wrapped around the pork loin will be fully cooked when the pork loin is done. BUT it won’t be crispy. I carefully took the pork loin out of the slow cooker and popped it under the broiler for a few minutes until the bacon was nice and crispy. That is totally optional, but I think it tastes (and looks) better.
