Stuffed Pork Tenderoin

A few months ago I came across A. Liz Adventures' post where she posted about an easy stuffed pork tenderloin recipe.  It looked so tasty and I knew it DFH and I would enjoy it so I immediately saved the recipe. We finally made it for dinner, but with slightly different ingredients and I am mad I waited so long because it will certainly become a staple dish in our home. 

     We purchased a pork tenderloin form Trader Joes. We cut a slit across the tenderloin so it became a flat slab of meat and then pounded the meat until it became thin and flat. We added a layer of arugula and blue cheese crumbles and then rolled the tenderloin and secured it with toothpicks. 

We seared each side of the pork on a frying pan for about two minutes, to get the outside nice and crispy.   ( Sorry there is no picture of this step)
We then placed the rolled tenderloin on a greased baking pan covered in foil and baked it at 350 for 35-40 minutes.. 

After the tenderloin looked crispy brown and cooked all the way through, we took it out of the oven and let it sit for about ten minutes. 
I just realized I didn't even take a final picture, sorry for the messy foil picture above. 

The pork came out super tender and had intense flavors.  In our home a tenderloin will usually last us two meals, however this night we ate almost the whole tenderloin in one sitting,  it was that delicious.  I would love to try to stuff it with different ingredients in the future.

 Have you ever stuffed pork tenderloin?

  1. Hey!! I did the same thing! After seeing her post, I made it too! I need to post about it :) I mostly used the ingredients she did but yours looks great. And I like how you rolled it up. Did you use kitchen string or did the foil keep it together? I'll have to do it this way soon!

    I love pork tenderloin in the crockpot too. The other day I did pork tacos by cooking it in my crockpot with green chilis, tomatillo salsa and cumin. SO yummy!
