Apple-Stuffed Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Publisher Photo
My mother used to make stuffed pork tenderloin, but I added apples and nuts to the stuffing to make it more nutritious. I also reduced the amount of croutons called for and used the fat-free variety. —Sandra Harrison of Viera, Florida

MY REVIEW

"Excellent! I topped the Pork with a couple of slices of bacon just for a bit of flavor and to keep it moist. Will definitely make this one again!"

MY REVIEW

"We really liked this! It was a lot more simple to make than you'd think! Our first time stuffing anything also. We improvised with toothpicks since we didn't have the kitchen string. I also rubbed the tenderloin with pork rub to give it some extra flavor. Turned out great!"

"this is the first thing that I have ever stuffed and it turned out great. I think I may be addicted to stuffing now!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 12, 2009

"This was good and easy to make, but I found the stuffing to be a little bit on the flavourless side. I would make it again, but I would add some spices to the stuffing to give it more flavour (possibly Sage). Also, I brushed the tenderloin with butter and rubbed it with salt and pepper before baking which gave it a nice golden brown top and brought out the flavour of the tenderloin."
