Hi Hag Chef; I made this recipe, followed your ingredients and directions to the letter. The rolled loin roast turned out fabulous and the taste of the stuffing was great. Also the sauce was absolutely delightful. The only problem that I had was that there was so much stuffing left over. I think that the bread crumbs should be cut back to 1 cup. The boneless single pork loin roast weighed 2 pounds 13 ounces. It also flattened real well, but just could not stuff it with all the stuffing. Thanks for a tasty pork recipe. "Uncle Bill"
