DIRECTIONS

  • Bring water, salt and sugar to boil.
  • Add bay leaves, cloves, cinnamon stick, peppercorns and garlic.
  • Simmer 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let cool to room temp.
  • Pour over pork roast and marinate a minimum of 8 hours or overnight.
  • Drain.
  • Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees.
  • Season meat with salt and pepper.
  • Place in a roasting pan with meat side down.
  • Drape bacon slices over the roast so the top and sides are covered with the bacon.
  • Bake in pre-heated oven until internal temperature of the meat is 140 degrees.
  • (Approx. 2 hours+ depending on roast size.) Let roast rest about 20 minutes before slicing.
  • I've found it easiest to cut with an electric knife with the meat down and ribs up- slicing between the rib bones.
