Roasted Center Cut Pork Loin

Not only did I make Texas Sheet Cake for Bloodhound's birthday, but I also roasted a center cut pork loin.  Please note that this is not a standard pork loin, which has a thin layer of fat running the length of one side.  This is the center portion of the loin and as such there isn't any fat to keep it from drying out.  I served this with mashed potatoes with gravy made from the drippings.

1 3-4lb loin
1 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 pieces bacon
3 tablespoons olive oil

Heat oil in large cast iron skillet over medium high heat.  Sprinkle loin with seasonings and brown in skillet on all sides. When the loin is browned remove from heat and drape with bacon.  Place in 350F oven and cook until internal temperature is 150F.  Allow to rest for 3 minutes before carving.  Use drippings to make gravy.
