Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 3 lb. pork loin
  • 12 dried figs
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 8 slices prosciutto
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 20 fresh sage leaves, chopped (use 2 tsp dried sage if fresh isn’t available)
  • House seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 4 tablespoons honey

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Cut a pocket along the length of the pork loin being careful not to sever it in half. Think of a Muppet. You get the idea. 🙂
  3. In a food processor, pulse the butter, figs, prosciutto, garlic, and sage until it is a paste.
  4. Season the inside of the pork loin. Stuff the fig paste inside the pork loin and secure it with kitchen string to keep it together.
  5. Mix the mustard and honey. Pour it over the pork loin.
  6. Drizzle with olive oil.
  7. Place in the oven and immediately decrease temperature to 375 degrees.
  8. Cook for one hour.
