How to make it

  • OK here we go!
  • On a large cutting board:
  • place loin front to back(not long ways)
  • with a sharp knife make 1 inch cut front to back
  • we are going to make a roll so you want to start cutting to the right
  • as you cut hold the already cut piece in your left hand and follow knife until you come to center of roast and can lay it flat.
  • You should have a flat piece of pork loin about 1" thick throughout.

  • cover spinach with grated cheese
