Caprese Stuffed Pork Loin has all your favorite flavors of summer on one plate. This recipe is a breeze because of the convenience of using a HORMEL® Loin Filet. Vibrant tomatoes, fragrant basil, and creamy mozzarella make each bite delightfully tender, juicy, and brightly flavored.
|1||package HORMEL® Pork Loin Filet|
|2||cloves garlic, thinly sliced|
|½||cup chopped tomatoes|
|½||cup chopped fresh basil leaves|
|2||ounces chopped fresh mozzarella|
|2||tablespoons canola oil|
|½||cup chicken or vegetable broth|
Heat oven to 375°F.
Make a lengthwise cut down center of 1 side, cutting to within 1/2 inch of other side. (Do not cut all the way through pork.) Open pork, forming a rectangle. Place between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Use a meat mallet or rolling pin and flatten to 1/2-inch thickness.
Top pork with garlic, tomatoes, basil and mozzarella cheese, leaving a ½-inch border.
Roll pork, starting on long side. Tie with string at 1 1/2-inch intervals securing tightly with kitchen twine.
Heat oil in small roasting pan over medium-high heat. Add pork and brown on all sides. Remove from heat and add broth. Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145°F.
