Stuffed tenderloin is one my Mexican families favorite dishes. We try to prepare it for special occasions, like our Sunday reunions or birthday parties. Stuffed tenderloin is a simply prepared dish and will make your dining table look wonderful. You can fill it with nearly anything, but in my house we generally use a mix of garlic, ham and herbs. This time I added raisins to give it a light sweetness. Serve with green salad and mashed potatoes. MORE + LESS -

  • 1
    Clean the pork loin and use a very sharp knife to make a slit across the center from side to side, careful not to cut the walls.
  • 2
    Pre-heat the oven to 450°F.
  • 3
    Mix parsley, garlic, ham and raisins. Fill the center of the entire spine with this mixture.
  • 4
    Pour a tablespoon of olive oil over the back and use your hands to thoroughly grease it. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 5
    Heat a frying pan and fry the meat about a minute on each side. This will seal and keep the juices inside the meat. Place the meat in a baking dish, add 1/4 cup beef broth and bake in the oven.
  • 6
    Bake at 450°F for 15 minutes, lower the temperature to 350°F and bake for 15 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 155°F.
  • 7
    Remove from oven, remove the meat from the dish, cover with foil and let the meat rest for 10 minutes.
  • 8
    Meanwhile, pour the cup of beef broth in the dish where the meat was baked and stir until the meat juices integrate well. Empty in a saucepan and heat on the stove on high. Add the tablespoon of butter. Dissolve a tablespoon of cornstarch in three tablespoons of cold water and pour in the broth. Stir constantly until the sauce thickens.
  • 9
    Slice the meat and pour some sauce over it. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • You can use regular raisins or combine them with golden raisins.
