- 1 (8 1/2 ounce) package Jiffy cornbread mix, cooked per directions or 8 -12 ounces cooked cornbread

- Mix well.
- Add seasonings.
- Pour half of the chicken stock and all of the cream of mushroom soup.

- Add remaining broth until you get the desired moisture consistency.
- Stuffed pork shoulder: Cut roast to butterfly (2 inches down the center lengthwise, then open up the sides to expand).
- Spread with stuffing mix onto the center and to within 1/2 inch of edges.
- Using several lengths of twine, roll the roast back up and tie tightly.
- Place roast in a roasting pan coated with oil and flour.

- I love to serve with apple chunks slow-cooked in the crock pot with 1/2 cup brown sugar, lemon juice and 1/2 cup pecans, dash of cinnamon and nutmeg, plus grated lemon rind. Yum.
What a great recipe for pork. The dressing is a perfect compliment to the pork, adding just the right amount of sweetness. The pork came out tender and moist too. This will make a repeat performance at this household, for sure. Thanks for sharing, Jan Marie.
This was the recipe I was looking for. I used a pork tenderloin, made a feeble attempt to butterfly it, that probably could have been better, but the stuffing kinda hung out the top. I used Stove top for pork, made as directed and omitted the sage and poultry seasoning. I added 1/4 cup chopped jalapeno. It was a HUGE HIT for Monday Night football. I served with a simple potatoes au gratin and steamed broccoli. Thanks for sharing Jan.
