Trish’s Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
“This is quite possibly the best pork tenderloin I have ever had. I made this for my family last week and they all LOVED it. Every person at the table was raving about how good and flavorful it was. It’s great because it looks and tastes like a gourmet dish, but it’s REALLY easy to make! It’s definitely a crowd pleaser.” Erica
1 large pork tenderloin (Trish suggested getting the large pork tenderloin from Costco, so that it
what we got)
2 (8 ounces) package, cream cheese (we used about 2 ½
1 jar roasted red peppers
1 package bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 packages dried pesto seasoning (like Knorr brand, can be found by the gravy/dressing
Spinach leaves, fresh (to taste)
Salt & pepper
If you are using the large tenderloin from Costco, cut it almost in half, then cut the halves almost
in half again so that you kind of unfold it a few times and try to pound it out flat.
If you are using another kind of pork tenderloin, try to spread it out and get it nice and flat.
Once the tenderloin is flat and has a good surface area, spread the cream cheese all over the
Lay the roasted red peppers over the cream cheese then sprinkle on the crumbled bacon.
Evenly sprinkle on the packages dried pesto seasoning and lay the spinach leaves all over the
Roll the pork up, like you would if you were making cinnamon rolls, and tie it shut with 3 or 4
things of kitchen twine.
This makes quite a lot. After rolling, but before baking, cut it into thirds or fourths. Wrap in
plastic wrap and freeze!
Next, rub olive oil, paprika, salt and pepper all over the pork and place in a greased baking
dish (you might have to cut it in half for it to fit) or you can put it on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350°F about 60-90 minutes or until pork is cooked through.
Once cooked, slice and serve!
