How do you butterfly pork loin?
Don't let having to butterfly the pork put you off - once you've done it once, you'll want to do it again and again.
Make sure you've got a sharp knife and, starting at one end of the pork, insert the knife ¾ of the way into the meat. Don't cut all the way through or you'll have two separate pieces.
Continue to cut down the whole length of the meat and open it up, like it's a book.
It's best if you flatten the meat down after you've butterflied it, so the filing sits better.
Do you need to tie a stuffed pork loin?

Once your pork loin has the stuffing inside, and you've rolled it up, you will need to secure it. Doing this will stop it from falling apart during baking.
You could use cooking yarn to tie everything together, but that gets complicated.
Alternatively, you could use cocktail sticks through the edges.
However, for this recipe (and because it's delicious) wrap the stuffed pork in bacon.
By doing this, it will allow the pork to be more tender and juicy when it's cooked.
How long do you cook stuffed pork tenderloin?
Make sure to preheat your oven to 190C or gas mark 5.
Before you cook the stuffed pork loin make sure to cover it in foil.
Cooking the pork in foil will allow it to stay juicy and will prevent the wrapped bacon from burning.
Take the foil off for the last 15 minutes to allow the bacon to crisp up.
