Roasted and Stuffed Pork Loin

Looking for a simple and quick recipe? Would you like to stuff the meat or rather have the spinachs and mushrooms aside? Craving for a tender piece of pork? Stop searching and get the recipe instructions :D

This is one of my favourite pork pieces, so tender and juicy… Mmmmm. This time I preferred to roast it instead of baking it and the result was fantastic!

Ingredients for 4 to 6 servings: 1 pork loin (1 kilo weight), 2 medium onions, 350 grs fresh spinach, 400 grs mushroom, a spurt of Cognac or brandy, salt and olive oil.

  • Chop and caramelize the onions in a sauce pan with some olive oil. Once done, reserve. Add some more oil and cook the spinachs until they let all the water go. Reserve aside.
  • Clean and cut the mushrooms in thin slices and cook in some olive oil until they let all the water, salt them and reserve.
  • In the same clean pan, pour some more olive oil and fry for 2 minutes the 3 ingredients together. Add salt to your taste and reserve.
  • Get the piece of meat and with a sharpened knife cut it to get the space to stuff it with the sauce pan ingredients.
  • If you have kitchen string, use it to fix the pork loin. I didn’t have any and used some tooth picks.
  • In a small casserole, big enough to fit the meat, pour some olive oil and when hot place the pork loin inside. Roast at high heat to sear the meat and preserve the inner juices inside. When the piece gets golden dark, add a good spurt of cognac or brandy and roast at high heat until evaporates, then turn heat low, cover with a lid and cook for 20 to 30 minutes aprox.
  • The time will depend on the size of the meat, the kind of heat and the size and material of your casserole. Keep an eye on it.
  • Once done, place on a plate and decorate with some balsamic glaze.

Buen provecho! Hope you enjoy it :D

The pork does look really moist and tender Nuria! The stuffing is lovely and so fresh.

I would definietly enjoy this Nuria. When I lived in Ontario (a province of Canada) pork was a staple food with many pork producers. It is not so popular here in the west where beef reigns supreme:D

Wanna know what’s interesting? I have a pork loin in my kitchen freezer. It was on sale for 4 dollars…couldn’t pass it up. I’ve been thinking about things to stuff it with – this sounds like a winner!

Lovely looking pork and I agree that it is hard not to drool! Putting the stuffing in there would help to keep it moist!

Completely agree that pork tenderloin is one of the best cuts of pork (the best?).

Great idea on the stuffing: and quite nutritious too.
