Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

4 Pork tenderloins
1 Carrot
1/2 Onion
3 Mushrooms
1/2 loaf Fresh bread
2 sprigs Fresh parsley
1 c. Water
1/3 c. Butter, melted
20 pc. Strings, 1 ft long
Celery salt

Cut up all vegetables into very small pieces.

Cut the bread into small cubes.

Add the vegetable, bread and butter together. Sprinkle on the dried spices and mix well. (The stuffing should feel moist but not wet or sticky.)

Slice lengthwise along the side of the meat to open it up.

Lay 4-5 pieces of strings along the bottom side of the meat.

Place the bread stuffing on the meat.

Close up the stuffed meat with the strings and place into a large casserole dish.

Add water and close the lid to keep the meat moist while cooking.

Bake at 350°F for 40 min.

My comments:

This was the first time we've attempted to make stuffed tenderloin. The meat was very tender and moist and the stuffing was pretty good. I think an apple sauce or gravy would go nicely with this meal. Next time, I think we'll try cutting a pocket (ie. do not make the slit all the way to the ends of the tenderloin) such that it can hold the stuffing a little better on the ends. We considered cutting the bread into smaller pieces, however, we do like the presentation of the bread cubes stuffing.

I also discovered that the PC Apple-Mango Appletreet (unsweetened applesauce) goes very well with the tenderloin. The mango just adds a little more flavour to the whole thing. It's super-tastey!!
