I admit that this pork loin isn’t overly stuffed. I also admit that I could have pounded the meat thinner before I rolled it, but the flavor is there and that’s all that matters–and if you make it, your flavors will be awesome too–just make yours stuffier and thinner than I did.

To help you with the cutting and stuffing process, I found this YouTube video that shows you how to cut your pork loin. I made a sad attempt at explaining it in the directions below, but I thought you might be confused, so check this guy out–he’s doing it right.

Of course I’m begging you to use fresh herbs. I won’t preach about that any more. Well not today anyway.

If you’re ready for a change up from the same old turkey, or just need a new weeknight meal for your family, this one is a great place to start. My whole family loves it and there’s never any left. You can easily make a larger one too. This recipe is for one, one-pound pork loin. It’s simple multiplication to make a bigger one. Just don’t ask me to do it. I failed my math classes twice in college and they still let me graduate. I might be a danger to society–or at least to the safety of your pork.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless pork loin
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh sage leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves stems removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350.
  • Mix the mustard and next 6 ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.
  • Cut the pork loin so it lays flat: starting about 1/2 inch from the edge of the longest side, make a slit that goes within 1/2 inch of the bottom of the loin without cutting through it. Open the meat at the cut and repeat the cut without going through. You should end up with a fairly flat, rectangular shape when you are done.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and pound to an even thickness of just under 1/2 inch if you can. (Mine was thicker.)
  • Spread all but 1 tablespoon of the mustard mixture inside the loin and roll up like a jellyroll.
  • Place the loin seam side down in a baking dish, and coat with the olive oil. Bake 30 minutes.
  • Add the remaining tablespoon of mustard mix to the top of the loin and continue baking until the center registers 140--about 10 minutes more. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
