2 oz. Shallots
3 oz. Olive Oil
2 oz. Craisins
2 oz. Dry Apricot
2 oz. Raisins
2 oz. Dry Apples

3 lbs. Boneless pork loin
2 oz. Oil
5 tsp. Thyme- freshly chopped
5 tsp. Rosemary- freshly chopped
5 tsp. Parsley- freshly chopped
5 tsp. Salt
1 lbs. Fruit Stuffing

1. Butterfly the pork loin by cutting lengthwise down the center of the meat. Refrain from cutting all the way through—leave about ½ inch uncut along the bottom to hold both sides of the loin together.
2. Place your knife at the base of the V you just created so that the blade is perpendicular to the first cut. Using shallow slices and the cutting board as a guide, cut through the left side of the loin. Maintain a ½- to ¾-inch thickness and unroll the meat as you cut.
3. Repeat the same cut on the right side of the loin, making shallow slices and unrolling the meat.  The finished product should result in a flat, relatively even thickness across the entire piece of meat. If some areas of the pork are thicker than others, put a layer of plastic wrap on top of the meat and pound the thick spots with the flat side of a meat mallet.
4. Stuff the pork loin.
5. Roll the pork loin with the stuffing and tie with string. 
6. Rub the pork loin with oil, herbs, salt, and pepper. 
7. Roast the pork loin in a 350 degree oven until internal temperature is 155 degrees. 

4 oz. Port Wine
12 oz. Chicken Broth
1 tsp. Garlic
1 tsp. Shallot
2 oz. Corn Starch

1. Remove the pork loin from the pan and add shallots and garlic and sauté on medium heat.
2. Add port wine and deglaze the pan to remove any leftover meat or seasonings from the pan. 
3. Cook on medium heat until the wine is reduced by 1/3.
4. Add chicken stock and adjust seasoning to taste. 
5. Slightly thicken with a cornstarch slurry (to make a slurry, start from 1 to 2 ratio of cornstarch to water).
