Ingredients
  • 2 lb Pork Loin
  • 1½ cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 6 cloves of fresh garlic
  • Sun dried tomatoes
  • Feta Cheese
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees
  2. Slice the pork loin down the middle but do not cut through the other side. Lay open.
  3. Brush the inside of the pork loin with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Lay the fresh baby spinach leaves down the inside of the loin. Sprinkle with sun dried tomatoes, feta cheese and a little more salt and pepper.
  5. Chop 2 of the cloves of garlic and sprinkle on top of the stuffing.
  6. Fold the top over the stuffing and using twine, tie the loin together.
  7. Place in a Pyrex dish ( if roasting a 2 lb loin) OR on a roasting pan ( if roasting a 4 lb loin). Brush with additional olive oil and lightly sprinkle the outside of the loin with additional salt and pepper.
  8. Cut the remaining 4 cloves of garlic into halves. With a sharp knife, make small "pockets" or slits alternately down the outside of the pork loin. Insert the garlic clove halves into the slits.
  9. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes per pound. ( I like to bring the pork loin to 160 degrees and check with an instant read thermometer).
  10. Remove from oven and "tent" with foil for about 10 minutes before slicing.

Bourbon Pork Tenderloin

 

Bourbon Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Sauce
 
Marinating meat is so easy to do and it really gives a big flavor boost! I use Kentucky Bourbon in this marinade for a real taste of the South!
Recipe type: Entree
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup Bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 (1 pound each ) pork tenderloins
  • ⅔ cup sour cream
  • ⅔ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons dry mustard
  • 4 green onions, finely chopped
Instructions
  1. Combine the bourbon, soy sauce and dark brown sugar in a glass mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Pour into a large zip lock bag. Add tenderloins and seal. Refrigerate at least 2 hours, turning the meat occasionally.
  3. Remove from the marinade and discard the leftover marinade. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 55 to 65 minutes. ( I like to cook pork until it reaches 160 to 165 degrees on an instant read thermometer)
  4. While the tenderloins bake, prepare the Mustard Sauce. ( Or prepare it a day ahead so the flavors can develop) Note: The flavor is pretty intense, so if you want to tone it down a bit, just use less dry mustard. I love the flavor of this sauce, so I make the recipe exactly as I have given it here.
  5. Combine ⅔ cup sour cream, ⅔ cup mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons dry mustard and 4 chopped green onion. Cover and chill.
  6. When ready to serve, slice the tenderloins and serve with the mustard sauce.

Marinating the tenderloins:

Remember to always marinate meat in the refrigerator – never at room temperature.Don’t use a metal container – always use either glass or plastic.  I like the large zip lock bags the best.    Also, always discard the remaining marinade after use.  Marinating meat like this helps ensure you get a nice juicy result.

After marinating, place the tenderloins on a rack in a shallow roasting pan and bake.

Preparing the Mustard Sauce for Meat:

When ready to serve, slice the tenderloins and serve with the mustard sauce.

Enjoy!
