APPLE, PEAR, AND GOAT CHEESE STUFFED PORK TENDERLOIN
Take juicy pork tenderloin to the next level with this fall inspired dish! Sweet apples and pears, tangy creamy goat cheese, and warming spices for the sugar shaker give a decedent twist to this easy recipe!
1 Pork Tenderloin
1 Tbsp Apple Chai Sugar Shaker
2 tsp Cumin Spice Sea Salt
1/4 Red Apple, small dice
1/4 Pear, small dice
Optional: Fresh Rosemary, chopped
Preheat oven to 400F.
Butterfly pork tenderloin using the tip of a chefs knife to make a slit down the length of the pork, only cutting about halfway through. Use a meat mallet to flatten out the pork tenderloin to 1/2" in thickness.
Rub both sides of pork with Apple Chair Sugar Shaker and Cumin Spice Sea Salt.
In a bowl mix together the chevre, apples and pears. Spread out mixture evenly over pork and roll tightly. Place pork seam side down on a baking sheet. If needed secure pork with toothpicks or cooking twine.
Drizzle with olive oil and cook until internal temperature reaches 145F, about 25 minutes. Make sure to take the temperature of the pork and not the filing.
Let rest for 5 minutes before cutting into slices. Garnish with rosemary if desired and serve!
When preparing pork tenderloin, make sure to remove the patch of silver skin. This is tough connective tissue that will not break down during cooking. It will look like a roughly rectangular patch of silver on one end of the pork tenderloin. Simply use a sharp knife to carefully shave off the silver skin.
