While I didn't have a tenderloin this stuffing was suitable for stuffing a big fat loin chop and was pretty good, but I would have preferred the tenderloin as I think that the loin chops are just too tough even when brined. I had a side of fresh peas and prosciutto and an old favorite, potato salad Madagascar. 

For the recipe I used red onions and a cara cara navel orange that deserved a picture because it is such a beautiful color, I grabbed the raspberry balsamic instead of just plain balsamic vinegar and that was a tasty addition to the stuffing. 

This would be a great company dish!

Meanwhile, butterfly the pork by slitting each tenderloin lengthwise just far enough that it opens like a book to make a flat piece. Place the pork between two pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper and pound gently with a meat mallet to flatten it to a 3/8-inch thickness. In a small bowl, mix 1 Tbs. of the olive oil, the ground cloves, and 1/4 tsp. black pepper. Rub the mixture on both sides of the pork and season generously with salt.

I scored a pork loin roast at the store today-- the tenderloins all seemed to be too small to stuff. Posted: 11:09 am on May 21st
