Equipment

  • Cooking twine or toothpicks

Ingredients

  • 2 Pork Tenderloins about 1 lb each

Chutney

  • 1 tbsp oil of choice I used avocado
  • 1 ½ Large apples peeled and chopped (I used honey crisp)
  • ½ red onion diced (about ⅓ c)
  • 1 c pecans chopped
  • ½ tsp fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • ⅛-¼ tsp cayenne depending on the spice level you prefer
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • ¼ tsp fresh grated nutmeg
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire
  • Squeeze of lemon
  • 2 tbsp raisins or dried cranberries

Marinade

  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp grainy mustard
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Pinch of pepper

Instructions

  • Prep tenderloins by butterflying* them and pounding them out.
  • Whisk marinade ingredients together and set aside.
  • Heat a saute pan over med and add onions. Sweat for 2 minutes.
  • Add apples and cook for 5 minutes over med-low heat.
  • Add spices, brown sugar, balsamic, worcestershire and lemon.
  • Cook for 4 minutes over low.
  • Stir in pecans and raisins and remove from heat.
  • Evenly split filling and distribute between tenderloins, then roll and tie or use toothpicks to keep together.
  • Place in a lidded casserole dish and pour marinade over the top of both tenderloins**. Let set for at least two hours.
  • Heat oven to 350, bake with lid on for 25-30 minutes, then take lid off and bake for another 7-10 minutes. Then rest for 5 minutes before cutting. Meat should be cooked to 140 for medium rare (slightly pink), 155 for well (almost white).
  • Slowly and carefully slice tenderloins and place neatly on a tray, serve warm.

Notes

This can easily be adapted to one tenderloin, simply use HALF the ingredients.
