Pork Loin and Apple 'Sandwich'

Pork Filling:
Olive Oil
Onion (Finely diced)
Bacon (Finely diced)
Garlic (As much as you like)
Fresh Rosemary (Cut finely, as small as you can)
1 Apple (Finely diced)

1] Warm a little Olive Oil in a pan and gently soften the Onions. 5 minutes or so.
2] Add the Bacon.
3] Stir in the Garlic so it doesn't burn. Throw in the Rosemary, 30 Seconds! Then take off the heat to cool.
4] Get the Pork Loin on a board, trim it and cut it in, almost, half... (Butterfly it?)
5] Get messy and fill the Pork Sandwich with the half the filling mix.
6] Tie the pork with string and put in the oven on a lightly oiled baking tray. Reduce heat to Gas 4.
7] The Pork is going to take about 20-30 minutes.
8] Fry off the trimmings from the Pork to start off a nice sauce.
9] Splash in some White Wine and let it reduce.
10] Add the rest of your filling mix, stir and reduce while the Pork finishes cooking.
11] Let the Pork rest for 5 minutes on a board before you slice it and plate up.
12] Deglaze the roasting tray with some White Wine and add it to your sauce.
