How to make Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees F. Using foil, line a sheet pan and grease with cooking spray.
Step 2: Start cut a deep slit down the length of the pork. Be careful not to cut all the way through. Like a book, lay the pork open and pound to about 3/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet. Then, sprinkle the pork with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. On one side of the pork, layer the spinach, cheese, and sun-dried tomatoes.
Step 3: Tightly roll the pork up and secure it with some kitchen twine. Tie the string around 2 to 3 inches apart. Then, generously season the pork with salt and pepper. On the lined sheet pan, place the pork.
Step 4: In a bowl, place the potatoes and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat the potatoes well and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Step 5: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until the potatoes are fork-tender and browned. The pork is done once its internal temperature reaches between 145 degrees F (medium rare) and 160 degrees F (medium).
Step 6: Take the dish out of the oven and allow it to rest for about 5 minutes. Then, take the string off the pork. Slice the pork and sprinkle with parsley. Serve right away with the potatoes. Enjoy!
