Taste Experiment: Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
- 1 Pork Tenderloin 3/4 – 1 lbs
- Blue cheese crumbles, 1/4 lb
- Garlic, ~7-10 medium cloves
- Black pepper, to taste
Peel garlic. Unless they are very large, leave cloves whole.
Cut the pork tenderloin open, lengthwise. (Cut as if splitting the meat lengthwise, but only cutting 1/2 – 2/3 of the way through)
Season with pepper, to taste. Place garlic cloves in tenderloin and cover with blue cheese crumbles, filling the meat; using wet fingers can help stop the cheese sticking to them as the meat is stuffed.
Truss with cooking twine, if necessary.
Place in preheated oven for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.
Remove from oven and leave to rest for ~ 3 minutes
Remove twine (if necessary). Slice into medalions, roughly 1″ thick.
