  • 1 ½ pound wild boar backstrap


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

Green Bean Stuffing:

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced onion
  • 2 cloves slivered garlic
  • ¼ cup sliced mushrooms
  • ¼ cup fresh green beans, French sliced
  • ⅓ cup dried cherries
  • 1 tablespoon spicy mustard
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste


  • 1 tablespoon spicy mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. Butterfly pork by making long, shallow slices with the grain, unrolling the loin with each slice.
  2. In a shallow pan or sealable plastic bag, mix marinade ingredients. Marinate pork 1 to 12 hours.
  3. In a medium skillet, sauté onions in olive oil on medium heat until soft. Add garlic and mushrooms continuing to sauté 2 minutes. Add green beans, continuing to sauté 1 to 2 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and mix in dried cherries and mustard. Set aside to cool.
  4. Lay 4 pieces of 8-inch long kitchen twine on a flat surface. Remove pork from marinade and place over kitchen twine. Strain parsley and lemon zest from marinade and spread on pork loin. Place stuffing mixture on top of pork in an even layer. Roll pork over filling and secure with kitchen twine.
  5. In a small dish, mix mustard with honey for glazing.
  6. Place rolled and tied pork in a grilling pan, pre-soaked wood plank, or directly on a medium grill (350 to 375 degrees). Cook 20 minutes and brush on the glaze. Cook an additional 15 minutes or until pork reaches an internal temperature of 155 degrees.
  7. Let pork rest 5 to 10 minutes, remove kitchen twine and cut into desired serving portions.
