This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe was a very exciting one for me. Pork loins are one of my favorite meats and I especially love them when they’re stuffed with all sorts of yummy things. This one is stuffed with sauteed swiss chard, onions, garlic, and raisins. Can you imagine anything better?

The pork was so much easier than I imagined and I had dinner on the table about an hour before I had anticipated! The only issue I had was my own fault – I pulled half of a very large pork loin out of the freezer instead of buying a smaller one and had some trouble getting it cut and rolled thanks to the shape of it. That obviously didn’t affect the taste but I was hoping for a prettier loin. I did leave off the peppercorn/coriander crust because I didn’t feel like making a huge mess crushing the seeds and I won’t make that mistake again. I bet it would’ve been extra delicious with the crust!

We really enjoyed this one and I was shocked that all of my boys ate the chard! The raisins were definitely amazing with the pork and I’ll be on the lookout for my pork recipes that include dried fruit.
