Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

November 8th, 2013 by katie

I’ve missed you guys!  I have always felt like there is no reason to apologize for the time you need away.  We all have lives and sometimes everything is just too much.  I have three busy kids, a full time job, am enrolled in a Master’s degree program and just generally sleep-deprived and busy!  I am not afraid to admit the amount of take-out we eat on a weekly basis right now.  My focus lately has been simple family favorites that don’t take a lot of time, ingredients, or effort.  But I miss you guys and I miss the focus on new ideas and new food.  So here I am with a great fall recipe (stick to your ribs and turn on the oven)!  I have a few new ideas coming up for you guys as well as some Nespresso give-aways.  So stay tuned!  I’m still here and I can’t wait to tell you what’s in store!

Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

  • 1 oz dried mushrooms, soaked and chopped
  • 3 cups kale or spinach
  • 4 oz goat cheese

  • 1/2 cup pesto
  • 2 tbsp oil or butter
  • 1 tbsp honey

  2. Cut a deep slit lengthwise on the tenderloin from end to end without going all of the way through.  Open the tenderloin and pound out as flat as possible.

  4. In an oven safe heavy skillet, heat oil or butter and honey over medium heat until browning but not burnt.

  6. Transfer skillet to the oven and bake 10 more minutes.

    Are you missing a step? Sd tomato? Cheese? Do you add this to spinach mixture?

    Just wondering where the mushrooms go? The stuffing seems to be spinach through pesto, but I can’t seem to decide if the mushrooms are a garnish/topping or meant for the stuffing as well.

About chaos

cha·os -noun 1. a condition or place of great disorder or confusion. My chaotic kitchen is the result of three kids, two adults, dog, cat, and fish, a food obsession, a wine drinking hobby, and too few hours in the day. Between trying to feed a family of five healthy, happy meals, watching my weight, saving my pennies, and staying partially sane I have picked up a few tricks along the way. So here they are: the very best tips, tricks, and recipes from my chaotic kitchen-to yours!
