We usually have a plain pork roast when we have family over but recently I tried something new. As I’m a slow cooker fan I thought I’d cook a loin of pork in their rather than roasting it. It turned out great and I am now looking for other things to stuff pork with in future!

This stuffed pork loin is so easy to make. You just need to cut a slit in the pork fillet, fill it with stuffing and then tie it with string before putting it in the slow cooker. When ready to serve you just remove the string and slice like any Sunday dinner roast pork. It couldn’t be more simple.

Many people are nervous about having to prepare meat and string it but we bought a ball of special string and it really couldn’t have been easier. Definitely give this a go next time you lack inspiration for your Sunday roast. You could even make a bacon wrapped pork loin – wrap bacon around the loin before cooking, creating a bacon wrapped stuffed pork loin full of prune goodness.

You may not be keen on prunes and so this probably isn’t a recipe for you – although dried or fresh prunes taste so different to prunes that have been cooked for hours inside a loin of pork. If you don’t fancy this recipe then you can try our Apricot and Pistachio Stuffed Pork Loin instead – it’s another fantastic flavour combination.

Serve this pork loin roast as you would any other roast – with roast potatoes, veg, gravy and a big dollop of apple sauce!
