Ingredients

  • 1 (3-pound) boneless pork loin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Note: You can adjust the amount of salt and pepper according to your taste preferences.

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Using a sharp knife, butterfly the pork loin by making a lengthwise cut down the center, stopping about 1/2 inch from the bottom. Open the pork loin like a book and flatten it with a meat mallet until it's about 1/2 inch thick.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion and minced garlic, and sauté until they become fragrant and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the chopped apples, dried cranberries, breadcrumbs, dried thyme, and dried sage to the skillet. Stir well to combine and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let the stuffing cool slightly.
  5. Spread the stuffing evenly over the pork loin, leaving a small border around the edges. Roll up the pork loin tightly and secure it with kitchen twine at regular intervals.
  6. Place the stuffed pork loin in a roasting pan and season it with salt and pepper. Pour the chicken broth and maple syrup over the pork loin.
  7. Roast the pork loin in the preheated oven for 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the pork reads 145°F (63°C).
  8. Remove the pork loin from the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute and ensures a moist and tender pork loin.
  9. Slice the stuffed pork loin into thick slices and serve warm.
