1 Tbsp chopped parsley

Tapenade Stuffing

On a low heat melt the butter. Dice the spring onion and carrot and cook in the butter till soft. Add the tapenade, wine and parsley. Add the oats, turn the heat right down and put a lid on the pot. Cook for 2-3 minutes until sticky but not too dry. Add a splash of water if drying out.

 

Pork Loin

Roll cut the pork loin, and lie flat.  Add the Tapenade stuffing leaving a 2cm clear space along one edge of the loin. Roll the pork loin starting from the edge that has the tapenade, should look like a stuffed sausage.  Using kitchen string or tooth picks, keep the loin together and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 60 – 90 minutes.  The internal temperature should be 65 degrees when ready.

 

Rest for 10 mins then slice.  Serve with your favorite vegetables and mashed potatoes.
