LC's Pork Roulade

Saw a post last week about this recipe from the cookbook and thought I would give it a shot. I got a 10lb loin which next time I will cut in half or maybe even thirds. Pulled at 149 degrees which next time I will pull at 140 or maybe even a couple degrees less because this came out a little dry. The stuffing from this recipe is really good and simple to make. Total cook time even with the big loin was only about 2 hours.

    I think that I usually pull the roulade when it reaches 135-140*

    What's the trick to cutting these loins like that?
  • LitLit Posts: 6,895
    Thats the first time I had ever done it. I just cut an inch or 2 and then felt what I had just cut and then adjust the next cut depending on the thickness of the last. Came out pretty good. I also took the whet stone to my knife right before to make sure it was razor sharp. Hopefully somebody knows a trick because I think I got pretty lucky.

    Thanks Chris!

    First time I checked the temp it was 139, wish I would have pulled it then. Maybe 10 minutes later it was pushing 150. Lesson learned.

    It's really much easier than it looks, and is very quick. Place the loin on the cutting board so that it's pointing away from you. Hold your knife with the blade horizontal, and about an inch above the cutting board. Make a series of even cuts along the bottom of the loin, stopping when you are an inch from the far side of the loin. "Unroll" the loin away from what you have cut, so you now have a smaller looking loin, with a 1" thick flap hanging from it. Beginning again where you left off with the previous cut, continue slicing and unrolling, until you have completely unrolled the loin. If you have been careful to keep your knife blade horizontal, and always the same distance from the board, you should have a rectangular piece of pork of a very even thickness.

    Season it, slather it with some kind of sauce, add other stuffing ingredients. Re-roll. Tie (or better yet, wrap in bacon and then tie). Season the outside. Roast.

    Giving this a try tonight, and your wrapping in Bacon suggestion is being added to the mix. :evil:
