What would you stuff into a pork loin?

Getting a rolled pork loin of the outside cap (like spinalis dorsi or ribeye cap on beef) and I would like to stuff it with something.....fruit? dried fruit? which ones? Thanks and I'll let you know how it turns out.

      I have done one with wild rice/dried apricots or breadstuffing/dried apricots. I wouldn't do plain dried fruit, but any fruit/nut/starch combo works. I could also see some more pig products inside, like proscuitto, bacon or as mentioned above sausage. MMMM pig, wrapped in pig....

        "MMMM pig, wrapped in pig...."

        I like the way you think ;-)

        As for the fruit thing, I have served a homemade cranberry jam with a pork loin that I roasted on the smoker, It was delicious. Perhaps you can work cranberries into your stuffing. I like the idea of a fruit/starch combination.

          +1, Cleopatra999 wild rice, apricots, pine nuts or sunflower seeds, or stuffing instead of wild rice. Have done it before and it is good.

      2. i love fruits with pork and other pig products work. Another suggestion would be greens such a s spinach, along with fontina.

          1. re: jaykayen

            an amazing change-up is to soak the prunes in Armagnac or cognac before stuffing. Oh, baby.

          2. Fruits do work well. Recently had one stuffed with cherries

            1. Fresh bread crumbs, sautéed spinach, bacon, sautéed onions and garlic, rosemary.

                I have gotten good Hungarian sausage (Gyulai kolbasz) available at my local Polish or Russian store, made a slit in the loin and stuffed it. Yum!
