Prosciutto and Mushroom-Stuffed Pork Roast
with Balsamic Glaze

These delicious stuffed pork slices would also be fabulous served over soft polenta made with a little grated Parmesan cheese and cracked black pepper. Add color to your plate with a side of steamed green beans tossed with butter and a squeeze of lemon.

Recipe Ingredients:
3 pounds New York (top loin) pork roast
2 tablespoons butter, or olive oil
1 cup cremini mushrooms, or button mushrooms, chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped onion, or shallots
1 1/2 teaspoons snipped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon snipped fresh rosemary
1 cup plain croutons, coarsely crushed
3 ounces prosciutto, chopped
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2/3 cup balsamic vinegar, plus 1 tablespoon – divided use
Salt and ground black pepper

Cooking Directions:
1 – For Stuffing: In a large skillet melt butter. Add mushrooms, onion, and thyme; cook until onion is tender. Remove from heat; stir in crushed croutons, prosciutto, cheese, and 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar. Season with pepper. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring remaining balsamic vinegar to boiling. Boil, uncovered, until reduced by half, about 6 minutes; remove from heat.
2 – Prepare medium-hot banked fire in covered grill or preheat gas to medium-high. Lightly oil grill grate.
3 – For Pork Roast: To butterfly the pork loin, place fat-side down. Make a single lengthwise cut down the center of the pork, cutting to within 1/2-inch of the bottom side. Spread open. Make another lengthwise slit to the right of the first cut and a third slit to the left. Cover pork with clear plastic wrap. Pound with a meat mallet to even thickness, about 3/4-inch Remove plastic wrap.
4 – Spread stuffing onto pork, leaving a 3/4-inch border. Starting from a long side, roll the pork and stuffing jelly-roll style. Tightly and evenly retie meat with butcher’s twine or cotton kitchen string at 2-inch intervals. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
5 – Grill pork, fat-side up, over indirect heat, away from the fire until internal temperature on a thermometer reads between 145°F (62.7°C) for medium rare, and 160°F (71.1°C) for medium. Start checking the temperature at 45 to 50 minutes. Brush with reduced balsamic twice during last 10 minutes of grilling. Remove pork from heat; let rest about 10 minutes.
6 – To Serve: Remove twine and cut pork into slices, about 3/4-inch thick.
Makes 10 servings.

* To Roast in Oven: Prepare and stuffed pork loin as directed. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). Place stuffed roast, fat-side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Roast, uncovered, until internal temperature on a thermometer reads between 145°F (62.7°C) for medium rare, and 160°F (71.1°C) for medium, about 50 to 60 minutes, brushing with reduced balsamic twice during last 10 minutes of roasting. Let rest about 10 minutes and slice as directed above.

Tips:

If oven-roasting the loin, consider adding chunks of sweet potatoes, carrots, potatoes, and/or parsnips and onion wedges to the roasting pan with the roast.
You do not need to trim the fat from the pork roast; it will add flavor and keep the roast moist. When inserting the thermometer, make sure it is inserted in the pork and not the stuffing.

Roasted Italian Chicken
Roasted Italian ChickenRoasted chicken tastes better if something flavorful, such as an herb, is placed under its skin. The under-the-skin rub method used in this recipe contributes a lot of flavor while working like a marinade.

Recipe Ingredients:
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon snipped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1 tablespoon snipped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons snipped fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed

1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 ( 3 to 3 1/2-pound) whole broiler-fryer chicken

Cooking Directions:
1 – In a small bowl whisk together vinegar, oil, oregano, basil, lemon juice, thyme, salt, pepper, and garlic. Set aside.
2 – Rinse inside of chicken; pat dry with paper towels. Tie legs to tail. Twist wing tips under back. Slip your fingers between the skin and the breast and leg meat of the chicken, forming a pocket. Spoon herb mixture into pocket. Place chicken, breast side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. If desired, insert an oven-going meat thermometer into center of an inside thigh muscle, making sure it doesn’t touch bone.
3 – Roast in a 375°F (190°C) oven for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours or until drumsticks move easily in their sockets and chicken is no longer pink (180°F / 85°C). Remove chicken from oven. Cover with foil and let stand for 10 minutes before carving.

Chicken Legs with Glazed Eggplant, Zucchini and Apricots

Recipe Ingredients:
4 whole chicken leg quarters
2 teaspoons salt – divided use
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper – divided use
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 small eggplant, sliced into 1/2 to 3/4-inch slices

2 – Place chicken legs in baking dish and rub all over with garlic rosemary paste, rubbing over and under skin. Allow chicken to marinate for 30 minutes.
3 – While chicken is marinating, combine balsamic vinegar, honey, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and reduce by half, about 15 to 20 minutes. If using wooden skewers, soak skewers in water to prevent burning while cooking.

5 – Preheat broiler or prepare grill by heating on high, covered for about 10 minutes. Adjust grill heat to medium high after preheating.
