- 1 3/4 cups chopped assorted fresh mushrooms (such as brown, shiitake, and/or oyster)
- 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 2 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
- 1 teaspoon snipped fresh thyme or sage or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme or sage, crushed
- 1 3 - 4 pound pork loin center rib roast, backbone loosened (6 ribs total)
- 1 recipe White Wine and Shallot Sauce
1. For stuffing, in a large skillet, cook mushrooms and onion in hot butter about 3 minutes or until tender. Stir in bread crumbs, thyme, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and a dash pepper. Set aside.
2. Trim fat from meat. On meaty side, cut a 3-1/2-inch-long and 1-inch-deep pocket above each rib, making 6 pockets. Spoon stuffing into pockets. Place meat, rib side down, in a shallow roasting pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Insert meat thermometer into thickest part, not touching bone.
3. Roast in a 325 degree F oven for 1-1/4 to 1-3/4 hours or until thermometer registers 155 degree F. After 1 hour, cover loosely with foil to prevent overbrowning. Remove roast from oven. Cover with foil; let stand 15 minutes. (The meats temperature will rise 5 degree F during standing.) Slice roast between ribs. Serve with White Wine and Shallot Sauce. Makes 6 servings.
