1.First make stuffing. Heat oil in a large frying pan; cook onion and garlic, stirring, until onion softens. Add tomato, raisins and nuts; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until thick.
2.Cool then combine tomato mixture, minced pork and veal, and breadcrumbs in a medium bowl, season; mix well.
3.Preheat oven to 220°C/425°F.
4.Place pork, fat-side down, on board; slice through the thickest part of the pork horizontally, without cutting through to the other side. Open pork out to form one large piece.
5.Press stuffing mixture along one long side of the pork; roll pork to enclose stuffing. Tie pork with kitchen string at 2cm intervals; place pork on a wire rack in a large shallow baking dish. Roast pork, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
