Tender, juicy and flavorful this mushroom and cheese stuffed pork roast makes the perfect choice for a fancy dinner. It’s very easy to prepare with a handful of ingredients and my favorite part is that I can make a huge pork roast, enough to feed a crowd.
To prepare this delicious pork roast I used boneless pork leg. You should choose a squarish piece of meat because it’s easier to fill and roll up.
As regarding the mushrooms, I used fresh button mushrooms. As usually :). Mushrooms contain a huge amount of water and they have to be cooked until reduced, otherwise you’ll get a mushroom soup 🙂
Rolling up the pork is also very easy. You should start by slicing the pork into halves, lengthwise, but not completely. You should leave about 1.5-2 cm (0.59-0.78 in) on one edge so you can open the piece of pork like a book. Then pound the pork very well on both sides with a meat mallet. This procedure will tender but also will flatten the meat to be easier to roll up tight. Then fill the pork and roll it up very tight. Now it comes the most difficult part for me: to tie the pork with kitchen string.
Then, if you want a juicy pork roast, you have to fry it for a few minutes on all the sides to keep the juices inside.
You may serve this delicious mushroom and cheese stuffed pork roast along with your favorite side dish. It goes great with mashed potatoes, with roasted potatoes, with rice or salad.
