TECHNIQUE TO HIGHLIGHT Cutting a 4-inch-long slit through the center of the pork creates a sturdy “pocket” for the savory filling.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE It’s brimming with bright, bold Mediterranean flavors thanks to herby za’atar, fresh oregano, and creamy tzatziki (or cucumber yogurt).

tips & techniques
Prepare & make the filling:
1 Prepare & make the filling:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Pick the oregano leaves off the stems; roughly chop the leaves. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the spinach. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until wilted. Transfer to a strainer; hold or rest the strainer over a medium bowl. Using a spoon, press down on the cooked spinach and garlic to release as much liquid as possible. Discard the liquid and wipe out the bowl. Transfer to a cutting board; roughly chop, then transfer to the bowl. Add the goat cheese, breadcrumbs, half the chopped oregano, and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Stir to thoroughly combine. Wipe out the pan.

2 Stuff & roast the pork:

Line a sheet pan with foil. Pat the pork dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on all sides. Transfer to the sheet pan, fat side up. To create a “pocket,” cut a 4-inch-long slit lengthwise through the center of the fat side, keeping the bottom and ends intact. Stuff with the filling. Roast 22 to 24 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.* Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes. 

*An instant read thermometer should register 145°F.

Halve the tomatoes; place in a bowl. Add half the za’atar and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper; stir to coat. 

Cook the vegetables:
5 Cook the vegetables:

While the pork rests, in the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced kale and diced peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as it may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the kale is wilted and the water has cooked off. Turn off the heat.
