I had to look again and noticed that the picture shows a boneless pork loin. When the entire bone is removed, the roast is tied back together to keep it from falling open. If you buy one with the bone there is no string. I always buy one with the bone because I think the bone adds flavor, much like chicken bones do for broth.

I also noticed that the text was double posted. I fixed it.

The loin I bought was boneless but it was not tied up or even split open, in fact I had to butterfly it in order to stuff it.

You had a tenderloin. I hope you enjoyed it because that is one fine piece of meat.

Yes we did, it was very good!! I thought that tenderloins were small and thin, mine was similar to the pic you posted.

The tied roast pictured in an earlier post above is actually two loins tied together.

The first picture below is of two pork tenderloins on the cuttingboard. A whole tenderloin will weigh between a pound and a pound and a half.

The second picture is of a pork loin. Two of these were tied together to make the roast in the earlier post.

The loin will have fat on it while the tenderloin will have silverskin.
