Ingredients Needed for Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

  • Prosciutto, or thinly sliced ham
  • Parmesan

Recipe for Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

Directions for Making this Recipe

In a small bowl, combine olive oil, minced garlic, chopped rosemary, salt and black pepper. Set aside. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. 

One note about packaged tenderloin. The pork tenderloin that I’ve purchased from stores always include 2 tenderloin. 

Using a cutting board and a fillet knife, double butterfly the tenderloins to flatten–make two long horizontal cuts, one on each side, which will divide the tenderloin into thirds, without cutting all the way through. Open up so that you have a large rectangle of meat. Using the heel of your hand, gently flatten the meat to 1/2″ thick. Repeat with the second tenderloin.

Lightly brush insides with herb-oil mixture.

Cover each tenderloin with 4 slices of the Prosciutto, then spread 1/2 cup of the Parmesan over the ham, leaving a one-inch border.

Starting with the long side, roll up each tenderloin so that the stuffing is in a spiral pattern. Tie the roasts with cooking twine every 2 inches. Lightly brush roasts with remaining herb-oil mixture.

Making Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
Heat a large skillet with olive oil. Add the roasts and cook, turning to coat the outsides until browned. Transfer the roasts to a baking sheet lined with foil and place in the preheated oven. Cook for 15-20 minutes until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees. Remove from heat and tent with foil. Let rest for 5 minutes.

To serve, remove the string and cut into 1″ slices. This recipe will serve 10-12 people. In this picture, I’ve served the pork loin with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Gnocchi. (Recipe to come soon.) I’ve also served it with Italian Zucchini Boats and Fettuccine with Truffle Sauce and Asparagus.

Wine suggestion: Folonari Chianti Wine.
