1 boneless pork loin, trimmed
1 bottle Garlic and Herb marinade
4 T. fresh sage, chopped
With a long boning knife, make a cut down the length of the loin about 3/4 inch deep. Angle knife to cut into the meat and repeat. This will allow you to cut the loin into a flat sheet. With a meat mallet, lightly pound the meat into a consistent thickness. Lay stuffing in an even layer over the meat. Carefully roll the meat on the long axis around the stuffing. This should create a pinwheel effect. Wrap the loin with kitchen twine.
Combine marinade and sage, place tied pork loin in a casserole dish with marinade. Place in frig for 4 hours. Preheat oven to 350°. Roast pork on a sheet pan until internal temperature of stuffing reaches 165°. Reduce remaining marinade with 1/4 cup of butter and 1/2 cup heavy cream to make sauce.
Serve over wilted spinach with a drizzle of sauce.
