Roast Pork Loin with Asparagus,Mandarin Orange and Mozzarella Cheese

These day pork loin is always on sale at every local supermarket ,a pound as low as $1.49!! I bought a block of vacuum pack pork loin and plan to roast it with mozzarella cheese and asparagus. For an inexpensive, yet elegant meal, cooking pork tenderloin is hard to beat..I used meat tenderizer to tenderizer the pork loin then rubbed with salt and pepper before butterfly and wrapped with asparagus,mandarin orange juice and mozzarella cheese. If you like stuffed pork ,chicken or beef,you might like this roast pork loin with cheese too.. This pork loin is full of flavourful Mandarin Orange and creamy mozzarella cheese.
Ingredients:

1 whole pork loin,remove excess fat and tenderise with meat tenderizer,about 7 lbs

2 tbsp sea salt

2 tbsp ground pepper

1 lb asparagus,wash and drained

32 oz Whole Milk Mozzarella Cheese,cut strip or oblong shape

2 nos mandarin oranges,cut halves



Glaze or Sauce

1/2 cup honey mustard

1/2 BBQ sauce

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 piece Mandarin orange ,juice extract
2 tbsp corn flour+ 2 tbsp cold water dissolved







Method:

1:Remove pork from vacuum pack,remove excess pork fats,then use a sharp knife to butterfly the meat.Use a meat tenderizer to pound the meat,then rub with ground pepper and seasalt.

2: Place asparagus in the center of the pork,then place oblong shape mozzarella cheese on top of the asparagus. Fold the butterfly pork loin from inside out in oblong shape.Use a butchers twine (food safe cotton string) to tie the rolled up pork loin,then squeezed Mandarin orange juice all over the pork.Use thick aluminum foil to wrapped the pork loin again.

3: Place pork loin in fridge for 6 hours or longer for the seasoning to absorb into the pork.

4:Preheat oven to 375 F. Unwrapped the aluminum foil on the top,bake the pork loin for 45 minutes,then turn pork loin again,bake the other side for another 45 minutes to 1 hour.

5:Meantime, use a small pot ,combine honey mustard,BBQ sauce, Worcestershire sauce ,corn flour dissolved and extract mandarin orange juice over low heat.Stir the sauce until well combine and thicken.

6:Remove pork loin from oven ,cut the string and cut the pork 2 inch each. Place cut pork loin on a plate and glaze with the sauce on the top.Serve warm as main dish.
