3 tbsp
Onion
½ cup, chopped
Mushrooms
½ cup, chopped
Celery
2 stalks, chopped
Stale bread
3 cups, torn into small pieces
Salt
to taste
Black Pepper
to taste
Boneless pork loin roast
1
Water
3 tbsp
Ground thyme
1 tbsp
Herbes de Provence
1 tbsp
Garlic Powder
¼ tsp

Preparation

Step 01

Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C).

Step 02

Add the margarine to a skillet and melt over a medium heat. Add the onion, mushrooms and celery, and sauté for 10 to 12 minutes, until tender.

Step 03

Transfer the vegetables to a bowl, and add the stale bread, stirring the ingredients together until the bread soaks up some of the liquid. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Step 04

Slice the pork lengthways, stopping around 1 inch from the bottom. Open it out and pound both sides with a mallet to flatten them. 

Step 05

Spoon the vegetable and bread mixture onto the pork, then wrap the meat around it, securing in several places with kitchen twine.

Step 06

Transfer the pork to a roasting tray and sprinkle the water around it. Top the roast with the thyme, herbes de Provence, and garlic powder, plus salt and black pepper to taste.

Step 07

Roast the pork for 2 ½ to 3 hours. Check at 2 ½ hours, using a meat thermometer inserted into the center of the stuffing. If the internal temperature has reached 160°F (70°C), remove the roast from the oven. If not, check back every 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 08

Rest the meat for 15 minutes, then untie, cut into slices and serve.
