I have been wanting to try this recipe and finally got to make it today. This recipe is a bit time consuming but very well worth the extra effort. I prepared the stuffing mixture a day in advance, and doubled the complete recipe for 6 tenderloins, the stuffing alone is worth a five star rating, I used canned mushrooms and added in about 1 tablespoon of minced fresh garlic. The trick to this is watch your cooking time closely, as this cut of pork has a tendency to dry out fast. There was not a speck of meat left over, and I had rave reviews from everyone. This is an amazing recipe, you will think you are eating at a 5 star restaurant. I will repeat this recipe many times again. Thank you so much Marg for another winner, we enjoyed it very much!...Kitten:)

  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Add bread crumbs, parsley, thyme, sage, mustard, salt and pepper; mix well.
  5. Set aside.
  6. PORK: Cut each tenderloin lengthwise halfway through; open like a book.
  7. Place between plastic wrap or waxed paper; using meat pounder or rolling pin, pound to generous 1/4-inch thickness.

  9. Place 1 piece of meat on strings.
  10. With hands, press half of the stuffing over meat to cover surface.
