3-4 lb pork loin, butterflied and pounded to 1 inch thinkness
4 slices of rye bread, cubed
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 gala apples, peeled, cored and diced
1/4 cup of apple cider
1 cup of chicken broth
1 Tbsp of melted butter
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place bread cubes on a sheet pan and cook until toasted brown.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil. Add onion and garlic and cook 3 minutes. Add apple cider and cook until all liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and allow to cool in a large mixing bowl.
Add toasted bread cubes and chicken broth. Mix thoroughly until the bread becomes moist and the mixture molds together.
Place stuffing down the center of the flattened pork loin. Roll and secure with kitchen twine. Baste in butter and season to taste.
Bake at 325 degrees for 90 minutes. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing.
