This pork loin is roasted with a nicely seasoned herb stuffing with pecans. Serve this savory roast with potatoes and corn for a delicious family dinner.

I like to add dried cranberries to my stuffing along with the pecans. If your family doesn't care for nuts, the pecans may be omitted.

Ingredients

  • 1 (3 to 5 pounds) boneless pork loin roast
  • For The Stuffing:
  • 1 cup herb-seasoned stuffing crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons margarine (or butter, melted)
  • 1/2 cup onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup celery (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup pecans (chopped)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried leaf thyme
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

Steps to Make It

  3. If the pork has been butterflied and tied, open it up and separate into halves.

  4. If it is all in one piece, slice the pork roast almost through; open and lay flat, cut side up. Again, cut almost through each side of the pork. Place a sheet of plastic wrap over the butterflied pork and pound to flatten.

  9. Roast in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until a meat thermometer registers at least 160 F. The minimum safe temperature for pork is 145 F, and the minimum safe temperature for stuffing is 165 F.
