Pork Loin Chop Roulades

Pork Loin Roulades

Soooo…true confession time. John and I like to watch Hallmark movies. Have I already told you about that little fact in some other post? I dunno, maybe.

The movies are generally, but sweetly, predictable. There’s love, sometimes lots of love. And hope. Lots of hope. Yep, I like Hallmark movies, especially when I watch them with John.

These ridiculously easy-to-make, home-style pork loin chop roulades are very Hallmark movie friendly. Serve them with gravy, mashed potatoes, and your favorite veggie or salad.

Recipe by Terri @ that’s some good cookin’

  • 6 boneless pork loin chops, cut about 3/4-inch thick
  • 1 (6 ounce) box pork or chicken stuffing mix
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • olive oil

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375-degrees F.  Line a baking pan with foil and spray foil with lightly with cooking spray.  Set aside.
  2. Prepare stuffing according to package directions. (I used the microwave method for extra convenience.)
  3. Working with one chop at a time, place between a double thickness of plastic wrap or in a double thick plastic freezer bag and pound with the smooth side of a meat mallet to about a 1/8-inch thickness.
  4. Season each pork chop on one side with salt and pepper.
  5. Divide stuffing into six portions.  Place one portion of the stuffing on the unseasoned side of each chop.
  6. Roll up each pork chop with the grain of the meat running lengthwise; secure with toothpicks along seam if necessary.   Place seam side down on prepared baking pan.  Drizzle a little olive oil evenly over the pork chops. (This will help to keep them from drying out while they cook.)
  7. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 160-degrees F when inserted into the chops.
  8. Remove from oven and serve with a gravy of your choice over each chop.
Working with each pork chop one at a time, place between a double thickness of plastic wrap or a double thick freezer bag.

Roll each pork chop with the grain of the meat running lengthwise.  If you look carefully at this picture you will see that I only rolled up one of these correctly.  I don’t know what I was thinking.  Place the chops seam side down in the prepared baking pan.

Drizzle olive oil over the chops to help keep them from drying out while they bake.  (The pork chop in the middle is the one chop that I rolled correctly with the grain running lengthwise!)   Bake at 375-degrees F for 30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 160-degrees on the meat thermometer.
