Cranberry & Goat Cheese Pork

I came up with this recipe during the holiday season, with a desire to infuse the savory with the delightful sweetness of dried cranberries. The result was stuffing pork with a delectable mixture of dried cranberries, goat cheese, and pecans, creating a truly wonderful flavor combination. It's akin to hosting a holiday party right in your mouth! For added festive appeal, garnish it with fresh green herbs. I particularly enjoy serving this alongside wild rice and a warm spinach salad for a complete and satisfying meal.
