Ingredients

olive oil

1 tbs

prosciutto fat trimmed

120 g, (Buy 130g), fat trimmed, thinly sliced

brown onion

1 small, finely chopped

canned chestnuts, rinsed, drained

100 g, finely chopped

green apple, peeled

1 large, cored, grated

Breadcrumbs

35 g, fresh sourdough, (1/2 cup)

chicken stock

cup(s), (80ml)

fresh rosemary

1½ tbs, chopped

grilled trimmed pork loin chop

1200 g, (buy 1.5kg rolled loin)

sea salt

2 tsp

Instructions

  1. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook prosciutto and onion, stirring, for 3-4 mins or until onion has softened. Stir in chestnuts, apple, breadcrumbs, stock and rosemary. Remove from heat.
  2. Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Remove string from pork. Unroll. Place on a board, skin-side down. Slice crossways through the thickest part of the meat without cutting through to skin. Open pork out to form one large piece.
  3. Press stuffing, in a wide row, on cut side of loin. Roll up pork to enclose stuffing. Tie with kitchen string at 2cm intervals to secure. Sprinkle with salt. Place pork on a rack in a large baking dish. Bake for 1 hr or until cooked through. Remove rind and trim away visible fat. Serve.
