Pork Tenderloin with Stuffing

For an impressive entree that goes together with ease, you must try my Mom’s tenderloin. Sauteed veggies keep the bread stuffing moist, and the pork is so flavorful. —Lois Frazee, Gardnerville, Nevada

    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 cups cubed day-old bread (1/2-inch cubes)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • Cut a lengthwise slit down the center of each tenderloin to within 1/2 in. of bottom. Open tenderloins so they lie flat; cover with plastic wrap. Flatten to 1/2-in. thickness. In a large skillet, brown pork in oil on all sides over medium-high heat.
  • Spoon stuffing onto one tenderloin. Top with the second tenderloin; tie with kitchen string. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
