Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Starting about a third of the way in from a long side, cut lengthwise down the pork roast to within 1/2 inch of the bottom. Turn roast over; cut lengthwise, about a third of the way in, from the opposite long side to within 1/2 inch of the bottom. Place roast fat side down on a cutting board. Open roast to lie flat. Cover with plastic wrap. Flatten to 1/2-inch thickness; remove plastic wrap.
  3. Season roast with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with the Grand Cru®, arugula and dried cranberries to within 1/2 inch of edges. Roll up roast, jelly-roll style, starting with the long side. Secure with twine.
  4. Place pork in a greased, shallow roasting pan fat side up. Bake for 30 minutes.
  5. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.
  6. Place the pears, shallot and fresh cranberries around roast. Whisk maple syrup and Dijon mustard in a bowl; spoon half over pork. Bake for 30 minutes. Spoon remaining maple syrup mixture over roast. Bake for 20-30 minutes longer or until a thermometer inserted in meat reads 145°F.
  7. Transfer roast to a cutting board. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes. Discard twine. Cut into 1/2-inch slices. Serve pork and fruit mixture with pan juices.
