Substitutions and Suggestions

You could make this dish with pork tenderloin and have a stuffed pork tenderloin recipe in your repertoire!

Pro-tip: quickly sear your pork loin roast on all sides in a skillet on medium-high heat to create that beautiful brown crust on the outside before cooking it in the oven.

You can get creative with your stuffing choices, too! You could make a mixture of cream cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, Dijon mustard, sauteed onions and garlic can create a different flavor profile you could try next time.

If there are any leftovers, store them in an airtight container and enjoy within 5 days.
