Pork loin was on sale this week (Only $9 for the whole loin) so we decided to do something fun with it today on the copper pot and we took a few of pics

Started with 1/2 the loin $4.50 worth

Fire up and steam cleaned the copper pot.

The stuffing items prepared

I trimmed, rolled cut, & dressed the inside with salt, pepper, a classic olive, and butter to keep the inside moist and added flavor.

The stuffing items were sautéed and deglazed with Marsala

Preparing for the wrap. If found that the cheese likes to exit when it starts getting hot so I put extra so there is some left when it’s done.

The wrap was completed with a single layer of bacon.

On it goes, doing this cook at 290-300 ish so the bacon gets rendered

All done....I added foil over the ends to help control the cheese migration. It actually working pretty good.

Thanks Sowsage! Cooking on the outside grills is a necessity at the moment cause our MW and Oven gave up the ghost last week and our new ones are on back order.......

Many thanks chiler! It’s a simple sauce but a staple in our house! We have several versions we do depending on what it’s going with.

thanks Chris! To be honest the shrooms didn’t over power it, to me it’s about balancing the thickest of the pork with the stuffing. ie each bit of pork should have some stuffing to go with it.

Man everybody been killing it!
Thanks Brian!
Wow man just Wow a great looking cook there guy.

Warren
Many thanks Warren! I have been having the kids step up and do more cooking so I can focus on the protein, it really has made a difference because I have one job to do!

Looks delicious!
Al
Thanks Al! Much appreciated!
That is a good looking meal
Thanks smokerjim! I’m just glad my kids are into cooking so it makes it a game to see who can do the best plate....lol

Thanks Jim, my daughter has been coming over on the weekend from school and almost apologizes for eating out food, but she makes stuff and does the dishes......it goes unsaid she is welcome anytime!

Ryan
thanks Ryan! But now I have this idea to role it over the coals for the final sear. Flames on the bacon would be good!

Looks really nice!!
Thanks Hawg!
