Spinach & Feta Stuffed Pork Tenderloins

For dinner tonight, I had some pork tenderloin to play with. My preferred way to use pork tenderloin is to stuff it with a mixture of vegetables, herbs, seasonings, etc. With some spinach & feta on hand, I made the following recipe and served it with roasted potatoes and a light salad.

Spinach & Feta Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

serves 3
recipe from
Made in Napa Valley
tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup minced yellow onion
2 packages frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
Two 1-pound pork tenderloins
5 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
1 cup dry white wine
1 cup low-salt chicken broth
Kitchen string
Salt (preferably kosher or sea salt) and freshly ground pepper

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and sauté until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the spinach and sauté for a couple of minutes until the moisture evaporates. Remove from heat and let cool.

Cut through each pork tenderloin lengthwise to within ½-inch of cutting all the way through. Open up the pork like a book and pound out each side until it’s about ¼-inch thick. Distribute the spinach over each tenderloin and top with the cheese. Roll each tenderloin jelly-roll style from the long side, and tie with string in 5 places. Season the outside of each tenderloin withsalt & pepper. Let stand 30 minutes.

Roast the pork until a thermometer inserted into thickest part registers 150°F, about 35 minutes. Transfer the tenderloins to a platter; cover loosely with foil. Place the same skillet over medium heat, and add the wine and broth. Boil until the sauce thickens, scraping up browned bits, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. To serve, remove strings from the pork and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Spoon the sauce over the pork.

  6. I just bought a two-pack of tenderloins and this recipes looks great to try with one of them. We are having the other tonight, served in our usual way, which is a marinade of sesame oil, garlic and soy sauce.
