Recipe: Apple Stuffed Winter Wonderloin

GMF-Recipes1Backstory: After waking up on Saturday morning with the desire to create something new, my daughter and I came up with a pretty awesome dish. Here’s the one I called “Apple Stuffed Winter Wonderloin”


  • 2.5 lb pork loin (cut into two segments about 4”)
  • 2 apples (I used one red and one fiji)
  • 1/2 cup fresh sage leaves
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp honey lemon juice to keep apples from turning brown
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Chop apples into small cubes, chop sage and add to mixing bowl with a little lemon juice. Add in brown sugar, honey and cinnamon. Mix well.
  2. Cut off excessive fat from pork loin (set aside). Unroll pork by using a wicked sharp knife (I recommend a Shun 9” Scalloped Slicing Knife) by cutting a 1/4 inch trim around edge until it unrolls into a nice rectangle.
  3. Use a meat tenderizer/hammer to thin out any thick spots (place a piece of plastic wrap over meat before hammering it to avoid splatter).
  4. Spread apple mixture on top of pork and then roll up. You might want to use some cooking twine to tie it off.
  5. Then, sprinkle a little salt and pepper on the outside of the pork and top with the remainder of the apple mixture and as much of the pork fat as you like.
  6. Pre-heat oven/grill/smoker to 250 and cook until center is about 160 degrees. This took about 2 hours on a 60 degree day on a Traeger BBQ075.
