Herb-Stuffed Pork Loin Roast
 
Makes 8 to 10 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 (5-pound) pork loin roast
  • ¼ cup minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Carefully cut into pork lengthwise, cutting to within 1 inch of other side. Do not cut pork all the way through. Open meat like a book. Place on prepared baking sheet.
  3. In a small bowl, combine parsley and next 5 ingredients. Spread ⅔ of herb mixture inside of pork. Close pork, and tie loin at 2-inch intervals with kitchen twine. Rub remaining herb mixture on top of pork roast.
  4. Roast pork for 1 hour or until a meat thermometer inserted near center of loin registers 145º. Let rest 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
Notes
Note: You’ll need cotton kitchen twine to tie and secure the filling inside the roast. Sometimes called butcher’s string, you’ll find it in your grocery store alongside the cooking tools.
