20 Aug

Stuffed Pork Loin



3 pound tenderloin
1 cup pesto
1/3 pound fresh mozzarella
1 tbsp Mrs. Dash
2 tsp ground garlic



Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
For the pork: To butterfly the pork, place each loin on a cutting board and slice lengthwise through the center, about 3 inches deep, but not cutting all the way through, until it opens up flat. You can pound with a meat mallet to flatten.
Spread pesto on meat. Top with fresh mozzarella.
