Ingredients

  • 1 pork tenderloin 1 to 1.5 lbs is perfect
  • salt
  • pepper

Spinach Artichoke Stuffing

  • 1 8 oz block of cream cheese
  • 1 8 oz can of artichoke hearts sliced and chopped
  • 1 cup thawed frozen spinach drain excess moisture
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp granulated garlic

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to to 400 degrees farenheit

  2. Butterfly pork loin following instructions above. Cover with a sheet of plastic wrap and pound with the flat side of a meat tenderizer (pounding with a rolling pin works in a pinch) until 1/2" to 3/4"  thick (without tearing through meat).

  3. Combine ingredients for spinach/artichoke mixture. 

    TIP- Make sure you drain your spinach and artichoke well to prevent excess moisture- a wire mesh strainer works great.

  4. Spread spinach/artichoke mixture on pork tenderloin. Roll tightly, and tie with  cooking twine to hold everything together.

  5. Sprinkle pork loin with salt and pepper. Sear pork loin in 1 tbsp of olive oil for 3-5 minutes, or until dark golden sear develops. 

  6. Place pork lion on foil lined sheet pan, and bake until internal temperature at thickest part of meat reads 150-165 degrees internally.
