Juicy, soft and tender stuffed pork loin with spicy jalapeños and lots of garlic, cooked in a white wine broth and served with roasted garlic baby potatoes.

Garlic Jalapeno Stuffed Pork LoinWe usually get a pork loin every two weeks, I like to have some on hand for quick dinners. They are budget friendly and you can cook them in so many delicious ways. Also, its worth mentioning, that they are easy to prepare and most recipes for pork loin are hassle free. This Garlic Jalapeño Stuffed Pork Loin is no exception, it requires easy and affordable ingredients and its very easy to make. Most of the time I like to cook the pork loin in the slow cooker, but I decided to change things and spiced them up a bit with this stuffed pork loin version.

In our house we love garlic, my husband makes the most amazing Garlic Shrimp that you definitely must try. I decided to use our beloved ingredient in a stuffed pork loin version. The pork lion is stuffed with spicy jalapeños for some heat. We love jalapeños and always have some on hand, but usually they are hit or miss, sometimes they are not spicy at all, sometimes they put your mouth on fire. The leftovers where delicious as well, you can reheat them or just slice the pork loin and make sandwiches. Definitely keep the sauce after cooking, I stored my pork loin in the leftover wine sauce, to make sure it stays juicy, soft and tender.

Garlic Jalapeno Stuffed Pork LoinWhat is the difference between pork loin and pork tenderloin?

The main difference is that these are not cut from the same part of the animal, they also look very different. Pork tenderloin is thin and small, while a pork loin is wide enough that you can cut steak-like pieces from it.

Is Pork Loin a good cut of meat?

The area between the shoulder and back legs is the leanest, most tender part of the animal. Pork loin roasts are cut from this area. These cuts will be dry if overcooked, so keep an eye on it, if cooked the right way, the meat will be juicy and tender.

How do you cook Pork Loin in the oven?

  1. If you have time, it will be great if you can marinate the pork loin overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes per pound, or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
  4. Make sure you baste the pork occasionally while cooking.
  5. Once cooked, transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Let the meat roast for 5-10 minutes before serving.
