Make a lengthwise cut down the center of the tenderloin, cutting to but not all the way through the other side. Spread the meat flat and pound the meat using a mallet to about 3/4-inch thickness in a shape of a rectangle
Combine remainder of the olive oil with salt, pepper, thyme and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. Brush half the spice mixture over one side of the meat
Spread the spinach mixture lengthwise over half of the meat that was spiced. Roll up the meat firmly jellyroll style starting at the spinach end. Secure with wooden skewers
Preheat oven to 410 F and line a baking sheet with foil.
Place the stuffed meat on the prepared baking sheet and brush with the remainder of spice mixture. Roast uncovered for 50 minutes.
APPLE HORSERADISH SAUCE (optional)
In a blender add sour cream, mustard, horseradish, the remainder of maple syrup, grated apple and orange juice. Blend until creamy. Heat the sauce just before serving do not boil
Ultimately if you do not have time to make the sauce, serve the pork tenderloin with gluten free mustard, mayonnaise or horseradish. To serve, slice the tenderloin to about 1 ½-inch thick slices and spoon the sauce around the meat
