Recipe by bluemoon downunder

A delicious-sounding recipe that I'm intending to make soon, found this morning at the hairdresser's - I usually come away with several recipes! :) This one is from the February/March issue of the New Zealand magazine 'dish'. There are serving suggestions for a salad comprising a thinly sliced raw fennel, rocket, orange and roasted almonds, but obviously you can serve this with a salad of your choice. My preference would be to serve it with a potato salad and salad greens. the preparation and cooking times below do not include the 5 minutes resting time after the pork rolls have finished cooking.

Delicious!!! I too bought loin chops and pounded them thin. The flavour in this was outstanding and grilled perfectly. I used parsley for the herb and didn't substitute anything. For once. I made this for 123 Hits. Thanks bluemoon!

Directions

  1. Cut the pork in 2 cm/3/4 inch slices, place cut side down between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and gently pound to 1/2cm/1/4 inch thick slices; you will have about 8 slices.
  2. STUFFING: Combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, selected herbs, lemon zest, garlic and pine nuts in a bowl; add the olive oil and stir with a forkuntil they are well-combined and season to taste with the salt and pepper.
  3. ASSEMBLING: Lay the pork slices on the bench and spread with the Dijon Mustard; divide the breadcrumb mixture evenly between the slices of pork, pressing in onto each piece lightly; cut the feta into long slices and lay one on each piece of pork; roll up each piece of pork and secure it with kitchen string. Refrigerate if not cooking immediately.
  4. COOKING: Preheat the BBQ, brush the pork rolls with olive oil and season; grill over a medium heat, turning to cook on all sides, for a total of about 6-8 minutes. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the rolls. Remove the rolls to a plate and cover loosely and rest for about 5 minutes before serving them.
  5. SERVING: Snip off the string and cut the rolls in half on the diagonal; transfer to a serving platter and serve with a thinly sliced raw fennel, rocket, orange and roasted almond salad; or your choice of salad.
