  • First of all make the stuffing mix. chop the onion garlic and apricots finely (i use a food processor for this).
  • Add the breadcrumbs, melted butter, herbs,orange zest, egg and seasoning and mix well.
  • Next open out the tenderloin. Make a cut down the center to within a cm of the of the thickness. Open it out and make more cuts working out towards the edges of the tenderloin. This will allow you to flatten the meat out fully.
