  • 1 3- to 4-pound boneless center-cut pork roast
  • 4 tablespoons lingonberry jam or preserves (or other tart jam or preserves)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2/3 cup Chardonnay wine
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon Wondra flour (or other instant flour)
  • 2 teaspoons herbes de Provence


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Slice pork roast down its center lengthwise; cut to within 1 inch of the bottom without cutting through. On each side of the center cut, slice two 1/2-inch-wide "pages" lengthwise; cut to within 1 inch of the bottom without cutting through. Rub lingonberry jam on pages and center cut.
Pit and slice avocado into 1/2-inch pieces and place between pages. Roll meat, and tie gently but firmly with butcher's twine.
In a large heavy skillet over high heat, melt butter and saute garlic about 1 minute. Add pork roast and sear to golden brown on all sides. Remove to a roasting pan, reserving the pan with drippings. Roast 45 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 150*. Cover with foil and let rest.
Return pan with drippings to high heat, add wine, and scrape up any stuck-on bits. Whisk in cream, then flour, then herbes de Provence.
Slice pork into 1/8-inch-thick pieces. When you lay slices on a plate, they should look like a tree with green and red leaves. Ladle sauce over slices.
