Tomato and Cheese Stuffed Pork Loin

Creative way to stuff pork loin – slice it up like a “book”, marinate, put tasty ingredients in between “pages” and then roast.

I stuffed pork loin with tomato slices, shredded cheese and sliced thin garlic cloves for a hint of spice.

For this recipe meat is marinated for about 12 hours before cooking. So allow some time for that, you will not be disappointed.
