Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

Tuesday, August 8, 2017

This is a very tender and delicious way to prepare pork tenderloin.

The pork melts in your mouth and it's wonderful to present at any family gathering or dinner party. Not only very impressive and easy to make, it's one that's asked for often.


Stuffed Pork Tenderloin








I love stuffing the meat, it adds not only flavor but much more juice to the meat. Pork tends to be dryer than most so this really makes it delicious, moist and tender.

You can add more ingredients to the stuffing especially escarole or spinach that enhances the flavors, depending on what your family likes.

Gravy, mashed potatoes and corn on the cob make this the perfect entree.

It will look like you were cooking all day and come out with a gourmet meal. Easy as can be!

If you have dinner guests coming this is the best way to impress them. I have even placed this in a slow cooker with a can of beef mushroom soup and let it simmer all day.

The gravy made with that is perfect for mashed potatoes. The only difference is the roast won't be crispy on top.

Sometimes I even add boiled eggs chopped into the stuffing instead of meat. It comes out delicious without the meat inside if you don't like it.

One other thing, when you use pepperoni, the meat will look pink sometimes but it's cooked don't worry!
