This pork loin is filled with a traditional cornbread stuffing. If you put a drip pan under the roast during the indirect cooking phase and add some water to it, you will end up with the makings of a delicious gravy. Remember not to let the drip pan dry out or the drippings will burn.


  • 1 2-pound/475 mL boneless pork loin
  • 4 cups/950 mL crumbled cornbread
  • 1 cup/240 mL chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL pine nuts (lightly toasted)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons/30 mL butter
  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic (minced)

  4. Remove from heat and add 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL salt, 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL black pepper, cornbread, onion, pine nuts, and egg.

  5. Stir, adding the chicken broth slowly until it becomes spreadable.
