Stuffed Mediterranean Style Boneless Center Cut Pork Roast
“A distinctly Mediterranean take on what is a beloved classic. The real treat here is most assuredly in the stuffing, the flavors of which seeps into and permeates the entire roast as the two cook. The bold and pungent flavor of the capers is ever present in each bite and clash in a splendid array of flavors with the fresh parsley and basil while maintains its integrity and ever elegant presence. Yet, there is a surprising and almost garden like quality of the freshness of the flavors which one would expect to find only in lighter, more summer orientated dishes. Simple to prepare and certain to please, this will instantly become a favorite.” Catherine
