Bacon Duxelle Pork Loin

Bacon Duxelle Pork Loin at oldfatguy.ca

The weather is actually getting up to 2 or 3 degrees above freezing! Time for more food on the Louisiana Grills Pellet Smoker. I had a little pork loin piece. I decided I wanted something a little more upscale than just a smoked pork loin so I decided to butterfly the roast and make a duxelle stuffing. I also had some home made bacon trimmings so why not kick up the duxelle a little. I couldn’t think of one good reason not to!

I put the bacon, mushrooms, onions, garlic, olive oil, cider vinegar, brown sugar, herbes de provence and red wine in a saucepan over medium heat. I sauteed until the mixture had a nice brown colour, about 15 to 20 minutes, stirring often.

I sliced the top third of the roast almost all the way through.

I sliced the bottom third of the roast almost all the way through in the opposite direction.

I opened the roast into a  flat piece.

I spread the filling over the pork and rolled it into a spiral. Then I tied off the roast. I stuffed any of the mixture that fell out back into the roast.

I sprinkled more herbes de provence over the roast.

I preheated my smoker to 220 F and smoked the roast for 2 hours 30 minutes to an internal temperature of 160 F.

Alternatively, you could put it in a 350 F oven for an hour.

Let it rest for 10 minutes and then carve.

We served ours with coleslaw, broccoli salad and penne with Bacon Marinara Sauce (next post).

The Verdict

This turned out very well. The duxelle filling had a rich taste with nice bacon overtones. The pork was moist and had picked up flavour from the onion and herbs.

Who says smoked food can’t be refined?

  1. How genius is that? It looks delicious! I love doing stuffed pork loins, but never thought to do duxelle (and bacon of course!) I already know I’ll love it.
