Caramelized Onion Stuffed Pork Loin With Crispy Onion Topping

This stuffed pork loin is moist and tender with sweet and savory flavors. It is stuffed with a mixture of caramelized onions, garlic, sage and rosemary. It is coated with Char Crust Sun-Dried Tomato & Garlic Rub and topped with crispy, browned thin-sliced onions. If you do not have this brand of spice rub, Italian seasoning would be a fine substitute (Note: In addition to Italian seasoning, you will also need to season the pork with salt and pepper to taste).

ingredients

  • 2 12 - 3 lbs pork loin
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, sliced thin (large)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sage, fresh, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary, fresh, chopped
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
  • 2 teaspoons italian dry rub seasonings, Char Crust Sun-Dried Tomato & Garlic Rub
  • 1 onion, sliced thin (large)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Cook onion and garlic in butter until translucent. Sprinkle sugar into skillet and stir. Cook for a few more minutes until onions turn golden brown. Stir in sage, rosemary, salt and pepper. Remove from heat and cool until lukewarm.
  • With a butcher knife, carefully butterfly the pork loin (DO NOT cut all the way through—only to 1 inch from the uncut edge). Open the pork loin and pound with a meat mallet to 1-inch thickness.
  • Once the caramelized onion stuffing has cooled, spread onto the flattened pork loin to 1 inch from the outside edge of the meat.
  • Roll loin up like a jellyroll. With kitchen string, tie off every 2-inches being careful not to squeeze the stuffing out of the center.
  • Rub outside of stuffed loin with Char Crust spice rub (or your substitution if you do not have this rub).
  • Place loin in a roasting pan. Top with sliced onion and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Roast for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until cooked through or until meat thermometer registers 160°F.
  • Remove from oven and allow meat to rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Cut into 1 1/2 inch slices and serve.
