While this would work fine in an oven, I prefer grilled or smoked pork loin. It's a relatively fast cook and flavorful meal especially stuffed with Swiss cheese and fresh spinach.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. make the rub by roasting the corriander in a hot skillet for about 3 minutes or until you can smell the corriander. Grind this and the oregano with a mortar and pestle or spice grinder. Add all other rub ingredients and mix well.
  2. Rinse and dry the pork loin.
  3. Using a sharp, long knife cut 1/2 inch above the cutting surface as you roll the loin out. You should have a continuous slab of meat once complete.
  4. Apply a little rub to the surface.
  5. layer the spinach over the surface.
  6. add the cheese.
  7. roll the pork loin and tie with butcher twine.
  8. Sprinkle the rub over the outside surface and rub it inches.
  9. Place it on a grill so that it cooks indirectly and is not directly over the coals. If using propane, cook over the burners not lighted.
  10. If desired, add smoke wood, chips or a foil packet with wood chips.
  11. Cook until internal temperature of the meat is 160°F.
  12. Let the roast rest 15 minutes or so before slicing.

Great pork recipe. I made in the oven as it was 5 deg. and too cold for the KJ. We loved it and look forward to doing it on the grill. I had to use Monterery Jack cheese but made as written. Served with Crispy Parmesan Potato Puffs. Lovely meal.

This was really a success! My hubby often complains that pork loin roasts are too dry. This was nice and moist. My swiss was moldy, so subbed havarti. And I used already ground coriander. Other than that, followed the recipe exactly. Yum!

This recipe was okay, I don't believe it was anything special. It was easy to do and something different for me. I think if I do this again I will make a cream sauce with some of the swiss cheese to give it a boost. Thanks for posting!
