Total TimeUnder One Hour
- 1 ounce butter, plus extra for buttering the parchment
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 3 ounces mushrooms, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 4 ounces fresh bread crumbs
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 pound pork tenderloin
- 4 slices bacon
Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C. Melt the butter in a pan, then fry the onion gently for a few minutes until it is translucent and soft but not coloured. Add the mushrooms and then the parsley and thyme. Cook for a few minutes, add the bread crumbs, and season with salt and pepper.
Split the tenderloin lengthwise (butterflied). Then, using a rolling pin or a meat mallet, batter it on both halves to flatten it. Spread the stuffing on one side of the tenderloin and place the other half on top. Wrap the strips of bacon around the pork, place it on a piece of buttered parchment or foil, and close it loosely by scrunching the top and sides. Bake in the top rack of the preheated oven for about 1 hour. Then open the parchment or foil and cook about 10 minutes longer. Allow to rest for 10 minutes or so, then slice and serve.
This is very good served with applesauce or apple fritters.
