I make this pork roast often when I'm entertaining company. It's especially good with garden-fresh herbs, but dried work nicely as well.

Directions

  1. Starting about a third in from one side, make a lengthwise slit down the roast to within 1/2 in. of the bottom. Turn roast over and make another lengthwise slit starting about a third in from the opposite side. Open roast so it lies flat; cover with plastic wrap. Flatten to 3/4-in. thickness; remove plastic wrap.
  2. Combine mustard and garlic; rub two-thirds of the mustard mixture over roast. Combine the chives, sage, thyme, rosemary, 3/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle two-thirds of the herb mixture over roast. Roll up jelly roll style, starting with a long side; tie several times with kitchen string. Rub oil over roast; sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper.
  3. Place roast on a greased rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour. Brush roast with remaining mustard mixture and sprinkle with remaining herbs. Bake 20-25 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Yield: 9 servings.
Editor's Note: To grill the roast, coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray before starting the grill for indirect heat. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 1 hour. Baste as directed above. Grill 20-25 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 30, 2011

This has been the best stuffed pork I've had in years... So good and quick to put together. I was nervous as some of the ingredients as I don't have much experience cooking with them and I'm not a huge fan of thyme so I cut that in half, but it turned out fantastic and the roast was gone in one dinner! thanks for sharing =-)
