    1. Place pork loin lengthwise on cutting board. Slice lengthwise 1/2-inch into one side of the pork loin.

    2. Holding the knife parallel to the cutting board, slice and unroll the pork until it's a 1-inch-thick rectangle. If the thickness is uneven, place a large piece of plastic wrap on top of pork and lightly pound with the flat side of a meat mallet.

    3. After seasoning both sides of the pork loin, place cut side up and spoon filling on top within 1/2-inch of the edges.

    4. Starting at the long edge, tightly roll the pork loin. Tie kitchen string at 1-inch intervals to hold it together.
