Ingredients

  • 2 pork tenderloins (1 pound each)
  • 1 package (8.8 ounces) ready-to-serve whole grain brown and wild rice medley
  • 1-3/4 cups frozen broccoli, carrots and water chestnuts, thawed and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • GRAVY:
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 envelope pork gravy mix
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried sage leaves
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

Directions

Make 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 3/4-in. thickness.
Prepare rice according to package directions. In a small bowl, combine the rice, vegetables, apricots, parsley and seasonings.
Remove plastic; spread rice mixture over meat. Close tenderloins; tie with kitchen string. Place in an ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the water, gravy mix, mustard and sage. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in parsley.
Brush 2 tablespoons gravy over tenderloins. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 160°. Let stand for 15 minutes. Discard string; cut each tenderloin into nine slices. Serve with remaining gravy. Yield: 6 servings.

"Looks pretty. Average taste. A lot of work for little flavor."

"Wow this was good. I didn't know about the apricots, but it made it. When I make it again I will serve the rice on the side and cook the tenderloin by it self. It was a lot of work. The gravy is excellent."
