In this video, you’ll see how to butterfly a pork loin, then stuff, wrap, and tie it for roasting. These techniques are very easy and require no special skills or fancy tools, just a little string. You’ll start with a boneless pork loin. You’ll see how to butterfly it, season it, and then stuff it with a basic bread stuffing (any stuffing recipe you’d use for your Thanksgiving turkey would work great here). Once stuffed, you’ll roll your roast snuggly, wrap it in caul-fat (you’ll also learn what “caul-fat” is!), and tie it up with string. Finally, you’ll see how to roast the pork loin so it browns beautifully without becoming dried out. See more Chef John videos >>

What a fantastic meal I created for New Year's Eve using Chef John's instructions. While my butterflying was not as nice as his, I put figs in my pork stuffing, tied it all up (rubbed with olive oil as I couldn't find the cull fat) and I would love to post a pic to show it off. Thank YOU Chef John!

Great video, I learned something new! My question is, do you need to remove the caul fat before serving, or does it cook down to a point where it's edible? I've seen it used, incorrectly, on one of those cooking challenge shows, and they said that it "wasn't edible" so now I don't know what to think!
