Recipe for Stuffed Roast Artichokes Mushrooms
Stuffed Pork Roast with Artichokes and Mushrooms
Aunt Millie's Seasoned Croutons 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cans (4 oz.) artichoke hearts in olive oil, drained and chopped
  • 4 cans (8 oz.) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh thyme, or 1 tsp. dried
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 package Aunt Millie's Seasoned Croutons
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 boneless pork loin roast, (3-5 pounds)

    Yield: 6 servings

    Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Put croutons into a large bowl and set aside.
    3. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add onion and garlic, and sauté until tender.
    4. Add broth, artichokes, mushrooms, thyme, 1 tsp. salt, and 1 tsp. pepper and heat to boil.  Add the mixture to the croutons in large bowl and mix.
    5. Lay pork loin on a cutting board. With a sharp knife, make a deep cut into the lower third of the pork loin without cutting all the way through.  Open like a book.  Make another deep cut into the middle of the larger portion and again open like a book.  This should produce a thinner flatter piece of pork loin. If necessary, place a layer of plastic wrap over loin and pound it with a meat mallet to an even thickness.
    6. Take the stuffing mixture and lay it on the pork roast leaving a 1" border around the stuffing.  Next, gently roll the pork loin and tie with butchers twine. (You will not use all of the stuffing mixture.) Bake the remaining stuffing mixture in a casserole dish along with the roast.
    7. Mix together the olive oil, remaining 1 tsp. salt and pepper, and garlic powder. Rub this mixture over the entire roast.
    8. Put the roast in a large roasting pan. Bake until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees, approximately 45 minutes.  Let the pork stand for 10 minutes.  Remove the twine and slice into individual portions.
