Roasted Pork Loin Ingredients:

Preheat oven to 400 degree Fahrenheit.
Season the pork loin with the salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for about 45 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F.
While pork is roasting, heat a large braiser or pot to medium heat and add in chopped bacon. Stir frequently.
Remove bacon once cooked but keep the grease in the pot. Add in the onions and garlic and saute until softened and fragrant.
Add in all the greens and cooked bacon and stir together.
Place lid on pot and allow to simmer on low for remainder of the time the pork is cooking. Stir regularly.
Remove pork from the oven once cooked through and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
