Cranberry & Goat Cheese Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

This simple stuffed pork recipe will make you look like a culinary diva but only takes about a half hour to put together.

You’ll Need

  • 2 pork tenderloin (about 500g each)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp cooking oil, divided
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup dried apricots, chopped
  • ¾ cup goat cheese, softened

Prep and Cook

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • 2
    Using a sharp knife, make an incision halfway through the length of the tenderloin, so it opens like a book. Be careful not to cut all the way through.
  • 3
    Season with salt and pepper then set aside.
  • 4
    In a skillet, heat 1 Tbsp oil over medium heat and sauté onion, apricots and cranberries until softened (about 4 minutes).
  • 5
    On clean work surface, spread a layer of goat cheese on the centre of one side of the tenderloin.
  • 6
    Spoon cranberry mixture on top of the cheese, close up the other side of the tenderloin and, using kitchen string, tie it around the pork at 5 cm intervals.
  • 7
    Heat remaining oil in large skillet at medium-high heat.
  • 8
    Add tenderloin and sear on all sides until browned.
  • 9
    If skillet is ovenproof, transfer to the oven. Otherwise, place roasts on a rack in a roasting pan. Roast for another 15-20 minutes or until juice run clear.
  • 10
    Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
  • 11
    Remove string, slice and serve.
