How to Make Sausage-Stuffed Pork Roast and Blistered Green Beans With Bacon
No matter how delicious your stuffing is or perfectly charred your green beans are, you’ll never be the host with the most unless you choose the right roast! Luckily for you (and your fellow diners), we’re serving this hearty meal with an Omaha Steaks Boneless Pork Loin Roast. Two and one-quarter pounds of boneless, savory perfection, our master butchers cut this pork loin with a 1/8-inch fat cap, ensuring it will self-baste for next-level juiciness and flavor. Never cooked a roast before and experiencing pork intimidation? Omaha Steaks Roast Cooking Chart has you covered! And just when you thought the savory goodness couldn’t get any better, we’re adding Omaha Steaks Applewood Smoked Steak-Cut Bacon strips to our green beans for a steakhouse-worthy side dish. Cured and smoked the old-fashioned way, this super-thick bacon is the stuff meat lovers’ dreams are made of and the perfect complement to a classic side dish.
1. The Right Stuff(ing)
First thing’s first: prepare your savory sausage stuffing. Add olive oil to a medium-sized pan over medium heat and brown your zesty and pleasantly spicy hot Italian sausage for about 5 minutes before removing from the pan and setting it aside. Next, add your creamy butter, peppery shallots, sweet red bell pepper, mild celery, and pungent garlic to the pan and sauté for about one minute.
Now it’s time to add your browned sausage back to the pan along with its new friends earthy sage and thyme. Sauté it all for another 30 seconds and then add in your rich chicken stock and umami-packed Worcestershire sauce. Bring the combination to a boil, then lower it down to a simmer until it’s reduced in volume by half, which should only take 3 to 4 minutes. Finally, simply turn off the heat and stir in your nutty Italian breadcrumbs, which brings seasonings like oregano, garlic, parsley, and salt to the dish, until it’s fully incorporated before letting it cool to room temperature for about 10 minutes.
2. Fuhgettabout Store-Bought Rubs
While you’re waiting for your stuffing to cool, this is the perfect time to whip up this super-easy – and super-tasty – Italian rub! Simply combine your Italian seasoning, kosher salt, black pepper, and garlic powder in a small mixing bowl and whisk until they’re fully incorporated. That’s it!
3. Stick a Pork in it
The star of the meal is here! Start by thawing your Omaha Steaks Boneless Pork Loin Roast in the refrigerator for 24 to 48 hours. Once fully thawed, remove from refrigerator, pat dry with paper towels so your seasonings stick better, and then allow it to come to room temperature over 30 minutes. Next, carefully use a sharp knife to make a 2-inch lengthwise incision in the middle of both sides of the roast. The easiest way to make sure your incisions meet is to place your fingers in each side and see if they meet in the middle! Then use a spoon to stuff the middle of the roast with the cooled sausage stuffing we made earlier.
Now you’re ready to drizzle the roast with 2 tablespoons of your high-smoke-point grapeseed oil and season it liberally with our homemade Italian rub. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit before adding the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil to a cast-iron pan on medium-high heat. Sear your roast on all sides EXCEPT the ends where your stuffing is visible for about 90 seconds on each side. Finally, place your stuffed roast on a wire-rack-lined baking sheet and cook for about 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, until its internal temperature reads 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Then let it rest for about 15 minutes to achieve that ideal medium doneness of 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Want more doneness? Refer to the Omaha Steaks Roast Cooking Chart to determine how much longer to cook it for your best experience!
4. It’s Not Easy Being Green (Beans)
After you take your roast out of the oven to rest for 15 minutes, it’s the perfect time to make your mouthwatering side dish. First, add that same high-smoke-point grapeseed oil and your mouthwatering Omaha Steaks Applewood Smoked Steak-Cut Bacon cubes to a cold medium-sized pan, bring it to medium heat, and continue to cook until your gloriously thick bacon is browned, which should take about 6 to 8 minutes.
Next, remove the bacon from your pan and reserve the bacon fat for future use. Now put your green beans in the pan, add a pinch of salt and pepper, and sear them for 1 minute until they’re wonderfully charred on one side. You’re ready to flip your green beans and add your sharp garlic, crisp white wine, and citrusy lemon juice. Sauté the mixture until the white wine and lemon juice have reduced by 1/3 in volume, which takes about 2 minutes. Then simply turn off the heat and toss your green beans with the cooked bacon, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. Now all that’s left to do is enjoy your meal and bask in the compliments!
