Chard-Stuffed Pork Roast~

Home Β» 300+ Entree Recipes Β» Chard-Stuffed Pork Roast~



This week’s French Fridays with Dorie brings an entree that is frequently on our dinner table…the pork loin roast. At our house it is usually studded with garlic, sprinkled with salt, pepper and rosemary, then roasted for a simple, yet delicious main dish.  Dorie goes another step and has us saute chard, onions and garlic to make a savory stuffing.  Raisins or dried cranberries are added for a little sweetness and a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes for a touch of heat. The exterior is sprinkled with salt, crushed black peppercorns and crushed coriander seeds. Roasting at 375ΒΊ allows for the exterior to brown, yet the inside to remain tender and juicy.

The publishers of Around My French Table prefer that we do not share the recipe, but you can see what the other Doristas thought of this dish at French Fridays with Dorie.

  1. I adore pork!! Love this way of cooking it.

  2. How cute that everyone gets their own delicious skillet of pork roast. Yum!

  3. perfect for the holidays!

  4. Very nice Lizzy and looks so tempting for me and you know I don’t cook pork at home as my hubby is pork free, I am like crazing so badly for this.

    Btw, I am back home now and there comes the housework, cooking, cleaning etc etc etc.

  5. Wow what a great stuffing!

  6. This WAS a great dish huh? I love the stuffing and will use it for other recipes now too!

  7. Hooray for Dorie! This recipe looks so spectacular it could be served for any special occasion.

  8. I wanted to catch this before I head out for the day! I am making stuffed chops in the next few days-so finding this post that has a filling of chard does make me wonder about using it for the chops. Your roast looks delicious. Have a great day!

  9. I was thinking about a pork roast of some kind for my (early) Christmas dinner next weekend. This could be it! Why, oh why, did I just give away Dorie cookbooks last Christmas instead of getting one for myself!

  10. I am loving all the pork roast/tenderloin recipes I’m seeing today. I’ve never tried chard but I’m ready and willing.

  11. Chard is a unique stuffing…I really need to get a copy of that book.

  12. nice idea, thanks for sharing

  13. that is good for christmas.

  18. I love the presentation in the cast iron skillet. We really enjoyed the flavors in this FFwD!

  19. wow! and now Im hungry of course:))))

  20. This looks absolutely perfect! A sweet and savory filling pairs so well with the pork.

  21. Lovely dish! I adore chard, it’s fairly new to me, actually, and I’m excited for all the new recipes to try. This looks fabulous, satisfying and comforting.

  22. We do a lot of pork loin here too, pretty much the way you described. So this sounds like a great way to jazz it up some! Thanks Lizzy! It looks fantastic!

  23. We love pork tenderloin/roast, and the stuffing make the roast even better. We will have to try the chard.
    Have a great weekend!

  24. I used my cast iron skillet on this one as well – I always love the way it cooks meat (especially steak).
    Great photos!

  25. I have seen my share of stuffings for pork but never chard and I am loving this idea. The bitter nuttiness of the chard with the succulent pork sounds amazing

  26. Wow, that filling sounds fantastic!! I love the addition of the dried cranberries and the red pepper for some heat!

  27. Love! We rock a pork loin in our house so this is definitely a FFwD for us πŸ™‚

  28. Now look at that…. wow! I bet this was fantastic meal!

  29. I usually make my roast your way – but Dorie’s way does add flavor and nuance. Back to the book.

  30. Very nice another elegant dish to serve for guests that would be wowed by this lovely presentation… just beautiful!

  31. It’s the most original pork roast I have ever seen! I make pork roast very often, but either just with spices or stuffed with prunes or dried apricot. This one looks gorgeous and I’m sure it was delicious!
