This elegant pork recipe is easy to prepare and a nice choice for your next dinner party. The fruity stuffing provides a swirl of color in each slice and offers a sweet, nutty taste which contrasts nicely with the tender pork. Let the roast stand for a couple of minutes before slicing it across the grain on a slight diagonal. Source: Diabetic Living Magazine

  • Trim any fat from meat. Butterfly the meat by making a lengthwise slit down the center to within 1/2 inch of the underside. Open flat; pound with the flat side of a meat mallet to about 1/4-inch thickness.

  • Spread stuffing over the meat. Fold in the ends. Starting from a long side, roll up the meat. Secure with kitchen string or wooden toothpicks. Place the meat roll on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Brush lightly with oil. Insert a meat thermometer into center of the meat.

  • Roast in a 425 degree F oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until the meat thermometer registers 155 degrees F. Brush orange marmalade over the top of the meat. Roast for about 5 minutes more or until the meat thermometer registers 160 degrees F.
