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 salt
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.

“Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week – Potato Gnocchi with Tomatoes and Fresh Mozzarella

April 24, 2017 at 5:28 AM | Posted in CooksRecipes, Meatless Monday | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week is a Potato Gnocchi with Tomatoes and Fresh Mozzarella. The name alone sounds like nothing but “delicious”. Fresh made Gnocchi topped with Tomatoes and Mozzarella Cheese. The recipe is from the CooksRecipes website. The Cooks site has a large selection of recipes of all cuisines and tastes. Enjoy and eat Healthy! http://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html

 

 

Potato Gnocchi with Tomatoes and Fresh Mozzarella

This is Italian comfort food—homemade potato gnocchi served with a tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella. Recipe created by Chef Thomas Catherall, C.M.C.

 

 

Recipe Ingredients:

Gnocchi:*
2 pounds russet baking potatoes, peeled and quartered
2 to 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 large egg, lightly beaten

Sauce:
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
10 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and diced (or 1 1/2 [28 ounces each] cans Italian plum tomatoes, drained and chopped)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
Large pinch crushed red pepper
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/4 cup dry red wine
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 to 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar

6 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cut in 1/4-inch cubes
3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheese

 

Cooking Directions:

1 – For Gnocchi: Place the potatoes in a saucepan and add water just to the level of the potatoes. Salt the water. Bring to a boil and cook until very soft, 25 minutes. Drain well; let stand in the colander for 10 minutes.
2 – Spread the flour on your work surface. With a potato ricer or food mill fit with a medium disk, rice the warm potatoes evenly over the entire top of the the flour. Toss together lightly with your fingers to distribute the potatoes and flour evenly. Make a well in the center and add the egg. Knead to form a ball. Knead 1 minute to gather up all of the bits of flour and potato on the work surface. Cover with an inverted bowl and let the dough rest for 5 minutes.
3 – Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces. On a floured surface, roll each piece into a 1/2-inch-thick rope, approximately 12 inches long. Working with one rope at a time (keeping the others covered with towel), with floured hands, cut through the dough with the curved edge of a fork, every 1/2 inch. On the back edge of the fork, roll each piece forward and back, making fork indentations and shell shapes. Toss with the flour. Place on a floured baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough.
4 – Heat salted water in large Dutch oven.
5 – For Sauce: Heat the olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tomatoes, oregano, crushed red pepper, balsamic vinegar, tomato paste, wine, sugar, salt, and pepper. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until the liquid begins to evaporate and the sauce thickens slightly. Remove from the heat. Puree in a blender or food processor. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and red wine vinegar. Return to skillet.
6 – To complete the recipe, bring salted water to a boil. Cook about half of the gnocchi until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon. Repeat with the remaining gnocchi.
7 – Add the cooked gnocchi to the sauce. Heat thoroughly. Toss in the mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with grated cheese; serve immediately.
Makes 8 servings.
