If you haven’t tried Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Spinach and Goat cheese, brace yourself! It’s an experience. Tender pork stuffed with tasty spinach and goat cheese filling, lightly flavoured with garlic.
For extra flavour, the tenderloin is rubbed with flavourful thyme, black pepper and maple syrup seasoning, giving the tenderloin the most delicious crispy coating.
What is pork tenderloin?
Pork tenderloin is one of the leanest, most tender cuts of meat. Itis a long, narrow, boneless cut of meat from the muscle that runs along the backbone. It is lean with a mild flavour.
Difference between tenderloin and pork loin.
Both cuts have similarities, but they are cut from different parts of the pig. The tenderloin is much smaller and cooks quickly over high heat.
The pork loin is wide and comes from the back. It is large, lean and tender, and you can cut steak size pieces from it.
The cooking time of pork loin is also different. The best cooking method for pork loin is slow roasting at a lower temperature.
What to look for when buying pork tenderloin?
Pork tenderloin should be no larger than 1 1/2 pounds. The colour should be pinkish-red with very little marbling. You may have seen large pieces from1 1/2 pounds and more, with pale colour. Stir away from these.
And, the tenderloin cut is more expensive. But, the loin is a good choice if you are looking for a well-priced roast when feeding a crowd.
This tender pork dish may sound complicated, but it is easy to make. The meat boasts an array of exciting flavours and textures.
Adding steamed vegetables, a light salad or Sweet Potato and Yam Mash to this delicious stuffed pork tenderloin is all you need. But I like to add apple horseradish sauce as a condiment. Recipe included.
