Apple-Stuffed Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Apple-Stuffed Pork Tenderloin Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:3 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped apple
  • 1 celery rib, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1-1/2 cups fat-free Caesar croutons
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound)

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, bring 4 tablespoons broth to a boil. Remove from the heat; add raisins. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • 2. In a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray; saute the apple, celery and onion for 3-4 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Remove from the heat; stir in the broth mixture, croutons, nuts, pepper and the remaining broth.
  • 3. Make a lengthwise slit down the center of the roast to within 1/2 in. of bottom. Open roast so it lies flat; cover with plastic wrap. Flatten to 1/2-in. thickness. Remove plastic wrap; fill with stuffing mixture. Close roast; tie at 2-in. intervals with kitchen string and secure ends with toothpicks.
  • 4. Place on a rack in a shallow baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 25-30 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Yield: 3 servings.
