How to Make ~ Easy Cheesy Stuffed Pork Loin ~

Step-by-Step

  1. Clean loin of fat and silver skin.
  2. After cleaning loin of excess fat and silver skin, with a sharp knife...carefully slice loin down the center, but not all the way through. What you'll be doing is butterflying the loin in order to stuff. I then slice on each side of the initial slice and open. Pound with meat mallet, to thin out. You should now have a fairly large rectangle. Use another method if you choose, whatever is easiest for you!
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degree F.

    Salt and pepper the inside of loin. Sprinkle with garlic, Parmesan, then bacon, evenly.
  4. Spread spinach evenly over meat.
  5. Sprinkle evenly with mozzarella cheese.
  6. With maybe an extra hand, as you firmly roll the pork, stuffing anything that may fall out as you go, back in, while holding closed, use bakers twine to keep loin securely in a roll. Like I said, it's easier if you have help with this part.
  7. Salt and pepper lightly and brown all sides in olive oil over medium heat!
  8. Place in a baking dish, open side up. Add a little water to bottom of dish.

    Bake fore 45 minutes to 1 hour or until meat thermometer real aches 160 or until desired doneness is reached.
  9. Let the meat rest for about 5 minutes, this will keep juices in, plus help set up cheese some. Remove twine before slicing!

    Another great low carb meat dish, which was a big hit with my family!
