Hasselback Stuffed Pork Roast, a juicy Pork Roast stuffed with thin sliced Pancetta and sliced mushrooms sautéed in olive oil and spices. The perfect Family Dinner Recipe.
To tell the truth I really missed my Turkey but there was nothing I could do about it, because back then there was no Turkey to be found anywhere. Now of course is a different story.
Unfortunately the Italian is not a Turkey or Chicken lover and after all these years Baked Pasta and a Special Roast isn’t so bad.
And I have to say this Hasselback Stuffed Roast Pork is just that, a special Baked Roast. After sharing a Hasselback Parmesan Potatoes Recipe last week. I decided a Pork Roast would be perfect.
I bought a two pound lean piece of Pork Loi. I sliced it into 6 x 1/2 inch slices, and just like the potato I did not slice it all the way through. I lined each slice with a thin slice of Pancetta and stuffed each cut slice with a couple of spoonfuls of sautéed mushrooms.
Hasselback Stuffed Pork Roast
The Hasselback Stuffed Pork Roast was then baked for about an hour. It is best to measure the internal temperature of the meat, it is considered safe to eat when it reaches 155-160° F (or 68-71° C). Let it sit for about 10 minutes before slicing completely.
The Perfect Sunday Family Dinner Roast, serve with a delicious side dish and enjoy. Buon Appetito!
