Stuffed Pork Loin with Peanut Pesto and Prosciutto

  • 0 minutes
  • 8 ingredients
  • 6 steps


  • 1 (3 lb) pork loin roast
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 1/3 cup peanuts
  • 1/2 cup olive oil or peanut oil
  • 2/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 8 slices prosciutto


  1. Prepare the pesto by combining garlic, basil, peanuts, olive oil, parmesan and salt in a blender. Blend until smooth and set aside.
  2. Once the pork has been cut and stretched, apply a thick layer of pesto on top of the pork (to the side intending to roll up.)
  3. On top of the petso, layer with the prosciutto. You can also add a layer of shredded parmesan cheese here too if desired.
  4. Roll meat into a spiral and secure with butcher's twine every 2 inches. Season with salt, pepper and olive oil.
  5. Sear roast using a large skillet over medium-high heat before placing in the oven.
  6. Cook at 350 for about 30-45 minutes or until the pork has reached an internal temperature of 145 F. Let the roast sit for at least 10-15 minutes before carving.
