Total Time:

We created this “on the fly” as we were doing our “Garden” video and were quite pleased with the result. Unfortunately we didn’t measure anything as we were cooking, so the ingredients are approximations. However, this is one of those dishes which it is easy to cook everything to taste. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.


  • 4 pound Pork Loin

Marinade Ingredients:

  • 4 cloves Garlic , crushed or minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Grapeseed Oil or olive oil

Stuffing Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons Grapeseed Oil or olive oil
  • 4-5 Lrg. Swiss Chard Leaves , stems removed and leaves chopped
  • 2-3 cloves Garlic , crushed
  • 1/2 onion , minced
  • 1/2 cup Pineapple , diced
  • Sea Salt
  • Fresh Cracked Black Pepper


  1. Combine marinade ingredients, then add the pork. Marinade for at least 30 min.

  2. Make the stuffing: Heat grapeseed oil in pan over medium-high heat, add garlic and onions and saute for 1-2 minutes. Add swiss chard and saute for another minute or so or until cooked and tender.

  3. Add the pineapple and cook for about 2 minutes or until soft. . Remove from heat and season with sea salt and pepper. Allow the filling to cool a bit.

  4. Remove pork from marinade. Slice a long cut into the pork loin creating a cavity. Stuff cavity with swiss chard mixture, then place on a pre-heated BBQ. Grill approx. 4-5 minutes on each side or until pork is cooked. Make sure to control BBQ heat so it isn’t overwhelmingly hot.

  5. Remove pork from grill & allow to cool before serving. But don't wait until the pork get cold or else they'll get tough.
