I must say that this Bacon Wrapped Roast Stuffed Pork Loin is a perfect dish to enjoy with your family members during this festive season! ^0^ Glad that everyone love this tender and moist roast stuffed pork loin. Instead of using a oven, the stuffed pork loin and the side roasted vegetables are all done in the Happy Call Pan!!
Not a very clear picture on the stuffing layers. My kitchen was like a war zone while preparing the ingredients hahahah...hands too busy to take more detail picture >.<"
