I only needed to serve 4 people, so I used a 2.5 lb pork loin (which is actually sold as 2 separate pieces of meat). I laid them side by side and wrapped the bacon across both. I couldn't find fresh pearl onions, so I cut a yellow onion into wedges and also added some carrots as well. I used a meat therm. to cook to 160 which, which only took about 45 minutes. Then I used the broiler for another 10 minutes to crisp up the bacon. I think it was too long in the broiler because I found the meat to be a bit dry. I'd try 5 minutes next time. Since it was a little dry, I made a gravy from the pan drippings by adding some cornstarch mixed with water. It turned out great! And the 2.5 pork loin probably would've fed 6 people. I had plenty of leftovers. I'll definitely be making this again.
