The uniform shape of a boneless pork loin roast lends itself to easier handling in this take on South America’s matambre arrollado. Cut into a ½- to ¾-inch-thick slab, the pork is ideal for filling and rolling. You’ll need a digital thermometer to test the roast for doneness. If desired, the chimichurri sauce can be made up to a day ahead and kept refrigerated in an airtight container. The seasonings for the roast can be combined and stored at room temperature, and the pork loin can be butterflied and refrigerated a day in advance, too. Additionally, the roast rests for 30 to 60 minutes after cooking, so your oven will be free for preparing last-minute sides.




Don't trim the fat off the pork loin. The fat cap lends richness to an otherwise lean cut and gives the roast an appealing burnished-brown appearance. Don't rush when butterflying the pork loin. Short, small cuts allow for the best control so you can maintain an even slice and adjust as you go. Don't worry if the surface of the butterflied meat is not perfectly flat or even; it won't matter in the finished dish.
