How to Make Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small bowl, combine all the stuffing ingredients; stir well and set aside.
  2. After removing the silver skin, slice tenderloin lengthwise making sure to not go all the way through. If there’s a tail, do the same with it. Make a few slits into the meat which will help when pounding it down. Place cling film on top and flatten it down to ¼-inch thick with a meat mallet; discard the plastic wrap. Spoon the stuffing in the middle, spread evenly leaving 1 ½-inch space from the edges. Preheat oven to 375ºF
  3. Starting from the long side, tightly roll the tenderloin, tucking in the ends, until the pork is in a nice roll. Using kitchen twine, tie a loop on one end, make a firm knot to hold without cutting into the flesh. Leave a 2-inch long string end for later. Go round and round keeping the string 1-inch apart to the other end. Crisscross the twine and do the same in the other direction to the starting point. Tie a knot with the 2-inch string from the starting point and the loose end of the string. If the ends didn’t tuck in well, secure with toothpicks; season generously on all sides with sea salt and black pepper
  4. In an ovenproof saucepan over medium-high heat, add oil. When hot and shimmering, place tenderloin and quickly sear on one side only. When nicely brown, flip it over and transfer to the preheated oven. Cook for 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165ºF. Remove from the heat and transfer tenderloin to a cutting board to rest, covering loosely with foil.
  5. Return saucepan to stove top and using tongs with paper towel, tilt pan and gently dab to remove excess fat leaving a little behind. Turn the heat to medium and pour in white wine. Scrape the bottom of the pan to loosen any browned bits before adding Dijon mustard and apple juice; add cayenne pepper if desired. Whisk well and cook down the sauce to thicken it up, about 5 minutes.
  6. When proper consistency is reached, remove from the heat and whisk in butter until melted and well blended; stir in chives. Place sliced stuffed tenderloin on warm plates, spoon on the sauce and serve immediately.
