This stuffed pork tenderloin is an old family recipe. It is loved by everyone that has it. It’s always a bonus when the kiddos like a recipe too!
Pork tenderloin is my favorite cut from the pig. It’s just so tender!!
I’ve turned my kids into pork snobs. They don’t even like pork chops now because they’re too “tough”.
I’m ok with that. On the flip side they like White Castle…so they’re not total snobs.
Getting the pork ready for this recipe may seem intimidating, but it really isn’t that difficult.
Once you’ve trimmed any fat off of the pork tenderloin you want to take a knife and cut the pork tenderloin down the center the long way.
The most important thing is to make sure you don’t cut all the way through the pork.
After you do that you’ll want to use a mallet to flatten out the pork.
You can use toothpicks or kitchen string to seal the pork closed after it’s been stuffed.
I usually serve this stuffed pork tenderloin with green beans or any 0 point vegetable. It’s a filling low point meal!

Add the stuffing down the center of the tenderloin.
Roll up the pork and either use kitchen string or toothpicks to seal it closed.
