Oven roasted garlic bacon pork and parsnips

Pork is definitely my least favorite of the meats. We rarely eat it because I tend to find it dry and bland. However, this pork recipe was flavorful and moist. Absolutely delicious. It was so good in fact that I cannot wait to eat it again for breakfast. I roasted this pork with parsnips, but carrots or sweet potatoes would also work well here. The parsnips picked up this wonderful caramelized bacon taste, that just made them irresistible.

Paleo Oven R0asted Garlic Bacon Pork and Parsnips

2 pork tenderloins, trimmed of extra fat
8-9 parsnips, peeled and cut into large chunks
olive oil
6 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 package of bacon

1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp cider vinegar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place pork in roasting pan. Place parsnips around the pork. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. In small bowl mix together garlic, sage, salt and 2 tbsp maple syrup. Rub both tenderloins all over with mixture. Place the tenderloins close together and wrap the bacon tightly around the pork. Tuck the ends of the bacon in around the pork. Overlap the bacon slightly, and be sure to wrap the all of the tenderloins. Bake in the oven at 350 for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Mix together the glaze ingredients. Baste the bacon with the glaze. Return to oven and increase heat to 400 degrees. Bake for 20 minutes. Check internal temperature. Remove from oven, cover in foil and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Slice, serve and enjoy!
