Pork tenderloin is a terrific alternative to pork roast when you're serving just a few people. Substitute shiitake or portobello mushrooms for the cremini mushrooms if you prefer. If you do not have any fresh thyme, substitute 1/4 tsp dried thyme. Serve topped with chopped fresh parsley.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 green onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup thinly sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1 lb pork tenderloin trimmed
  • 1/3 cup shredded Canadian asiago cheese

Method

In skillet, heat 1 tsp of the oil over medium-high heat; saut?reen onion, garlic, mushrooms, thyme and half each of the salt and pepper until mushrooms are softened, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

With knife parallel to cutting surface, cut pork lengthwise in half almost but not all the way through; open and flatten. Sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper. Sprinkle cheese along centre; spoon filling on cheese and fold pork over to enclose. Secure with 5 pieces of kitchen string.

In large nonstick skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; sear pork until browned all over, about 5 minutes. Transfer to baking sheet and bake in 375?F (190?C) oven until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, about 30 minutes.
