Stuffed Pork Loin with Turnip Greens
salt & pepper
Take a whole pork loin and using your chef knife slice loin to unroll it till it lays flat.
Salt & pepper, rub with olive oil.
In a large pot on stove cook turnip greens the way you like them. After greens have cooled start spreading them onto the laid out pork loin. After you have spread the green on the pork loin start rolling it back up jelly roll style. Tie the roll about 3 times, once in the middle and once on either end.
Cook at 400 degree F for about 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 310 degrees F and cook for another 20 minutes. Check temperature to be sure inside temperature is at least 165 degrees F.
With the extra pot liquor from the greens cook down to make a glaze and pour over pork loin before cutting. Let stand about 10 minutes.
