Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Saute onion and garlic in olive oil (reserve 1 tbsp OO for later) until soft.
  3. Remove onion and garlic from heat -- stir in breadcrumbs, figs, olives, almonds, lemon juice, parsley, and egg yolk (this makes the stuffing).
  4. Unroll belly flap from pork loin to open the loin up -- spread half the stuffing over the flat piece, roll it up, tie the joint at intervals with string.
  5. Pour remaining oil into small roasting pan -- add the pork loin. Roast for 1 hour 20 minute.
  6. Take remaining stuffing mix and form into balls -- add to the pan 15-20 min before end of cooking time.
  7. Let the pork loin rest for 10 min after removing from oven -- take string off before slicing.
