What's this?

If you’re nuts about bacon, try this deliciously tender walnut & craisin stuffed pork loin.

Ingredients

  • 3 Pound Pork Loin, Butterflied

  • As Needed Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub

  • 1/4 Cup Walnuts, Chopped

  • 1/3 Cup Craisins

  • 1 Tablespoon fresh oregano

  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme

  • 6 Pieces asparagus, ends trimmed

  • 6 Slices Bacon, sliced

  • 1/3 Cup Parmesan cheese, grated

  • As Needed Bacon Grease

Steps

  • 1

    Lay down 2 large pieces of butcher’s twine on your work surface. Place butterflied pork loin perpendicular to twine.
  • 2

    Season the inside of the pork loin with the Traeger Pork and Poultry rub.
  • 3

    On one end of the loin, layer in a line all of the ingredients, beginning with the chopped walnuts, craisins, oregano, thyme, and asparagus.
  • 4

    Add bacon and top with the parmesan cheese.
  • 5

    Starting at the end with all of the fillings, carefully roll up the pork loin and secure on both ends with butcher's twine.
  • 6

    Roll the pork loin in the reserved bacon grease and season the outside with more Pork and Poultry Shake.

    When ready to cook, set temperature to 180°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. Place stuffed pork loin directly on the grill grate and smoke for 1 hour.

    Remove the pork loin; increase the temperature to 350℉ and allow to preheat.

    Place the loin back on the Traeger and grill for approximately 30 to 45 minutes or until the temperature reads 135℉ on an instant-read thermometer.
