Swiss Chard Stuffed Pork Loin Recipe

Yield: 4 Servings
Total Time:
45 mins
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 Pork Loin Chops , or similar cut (@ 1″ thick)

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
  • 1/2 cup Grapeseed Oil

Stuffing Ingredients:

  • 6 Lrg. Swiss Chard Leaves , stems removed
  • 2-3 cloves Garlic , crushed
  • 2-3 Shallots , diced
  • 1/2 cup Pineapple , diced
  • 1 Tablespoon Grapeseed Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Fresh Cracked Black Pepper


  1. Combine marinade ingredients, then marinade pork for 30 min.
  2. Bring pot of water to boil, add sea salt to taste, then par-boil swiss chard for 3-5 minutes. Drain, place in a ice bath until cool, then drain again. Squeeze out excess water, then slice into 1″ pieces.
  3. Heat grapeseed oil in pan over medium-high heat, add garlic and shallots and saute for 1-2 minutes. Add swiss chard and sesame oil, saute for another minute or so, then add pineapple. Remove from heat and season with sea salt and pepper. Allow to cool a bit.
  4. Remove pork from marinade. Slice a pocket into pork that goes less than a 1/2″ from outer rims. Stuff cavity with swiss chard mixture, then place on a pre-heated BBQ. Grill approx. 4-5 minutes on each side, controlling BBQ heat so it isn’t overwhelmingly hot. Remove from grill & eat.
