  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Heat margarine in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion, mushrooms, and celery in the hot margarine until vegetables are tender, about 12 minutes. Transfer vegetables to a bowl. Stir bread into vegetables until moistened; season with salt and black pepper.
  3. Cut the pork loin almost in half lengthwise, cutting to about 1 inch from the bottom; open pork loin like a book. Cover with plastic wrap and lightly pound with a meat mallet to flatten the meat. Spoon stuffing onto the pork loin, roll the meat over the stuffing, and tie pork loin together in three places using kitchen twine.
  4. Place tied loin into a roasting pan and pour about 3 tablespoons water around the roast. Season roast with salt, black pepper, thyme, herbes de Provence, and garlic powder.
  5. Roast stuffed pork loin until an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of the stuffing reads 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Rest meat for 15 minutes before untying and slicing.

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can also make a mushroom sauce with the drippings. Add the drippings to a small pot and stir about 2 tablespoons of flour and a package of prepared pork gravy into drippings. Add 1 can of mushroom soup, bring to a boil, and whisk until thick and smooth.

Great recipe, very inventive to butterfly the pork loin and stuff with stuffing, I used Stovetop stuffing and wrapped in bacon and roasted it in the oven, a little dry, but I think next time I will cook a little less than 21/2 hours, thanks!

This recipe is a winner. I substituted the bread stuffing for brown rice and it was delicious.

It was grate. My friends said it was like eating a fancy meal in a high priced resterant. You can't get no better than that.

This is a super simple recipe that presents beautifully. I, too, used boxed stuffing mix for pork along with the veggies in the recipe. Because I had a larger, whole pork loin I added slightly less water than stuffing called for and used a package of frozen, thawed spinach (squeezed dry) for added color/texture/bulk. In my experience, it's good to butterfly or split the roast on the "fat" side and after tying it with kitchen twine cook it with the fat side up. This infuses the roast with its own flavor/juices and there's no need to wrap in bacon to have a tender, moist roast. If your loin is very lean without natural fat the bacon may help, but decrease the salt you'd normally use.

Great recipe. I wanted to wrap mine in bacon but ended up just adding bacon bits to the stuffing. Still delicious!

This was delicious! I didn't change a thing, and it turned out perfectly! My family loved it! Will definitely be making this again.
