Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb pork tenderloin
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons liquid honey
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Stuffing:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 onions thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup dried currants
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup toasted pine nut
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice

Method

Stuffing: In skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat; fry onions, stirring occasionally, until deep golden, about 20 minutes.

Stir in currants, vinegar, salt and pepper; cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in bread crumbs, pine nuts, parsley, and orange rind and juice; set aside.

Starting at thick end of each tenderloin, insert handle of wooden spoon lengthwise through centre, almost but not all the way through, to make pockets. Fill with stuffing, using handle to gently push stuffing evenly into pockets. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or for up to 24 hours. Place on greased baking sheet.

In small bowl, combine mustard, honey, oil, salt and pepper; brush over pork. Roast in 400°F (200°C) oven until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, about 40 minutes. Transfer to cutting board; tent with foil and let stand for 10 minutes before carving.
