STEP 1

Start by placing a 4-lb. pork loin perpendicular to you on a work surface. Using a long knife, start cutting into the meat along its long edge, keeping knife roughly ½" above the work surface. Continue slicing inward so that the meat unrolls and splays open.

STEP 2

Set pork to the side and arrange ten 16"-long pieces of kitchen twine perpendicular to you, each one spaced ½" from the next; lay one 36"-long piece of twine perpendicular across the shorter lengths. Lay 6 slices of prosciutto side by side atop and parallel to the short lengths of twine.

STEP 3

Season both sides of pork loin with salt and pepper and rub both sides with the herb mixture as specified in the recipe »

STEP 4

Roll pork into a cylinder, lift it up and gently place it on top of prosciutto slices.

STEP 5

Fold prosciutto slices up and around pork, and lay 6 more prosciutto slices over the top, tucking edges of the bottom slices under the top ones.

STEP 6

Bring together the ends of the long piece of twine, wrapping it up over the ends of pork loin lengthwise. Pull the twine taut, and tie the ends together.

STEP 7

Bring the ends of each short piece of twine together, pull taut, and tie each piece in a firm knot. Trim excess twine.

STEP 8

The rolled pork is ready for roasting!
