Ingredients

  • 3 lbs pork tenderloin OR 1 boneless pork loin
  • 2 tbs melted butter for basting

Stuffing:

  • 4 cups fresh soft breadcrumbs see NOTES
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped (use a small onion if you prefer less in the stuffing)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley OR 2 tbs dehydrated parsley
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2-3 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350℉. Place a rack in a large baking/roasting pan (I use a flat rack).
  • Prepare pork as follows; If using a boneless loin, cut it in half lengthwise and pound it down to 1/2-inch thickness. Pork tenderloins generally come in 2 pieces so pound each piece down to 1/2-inch thickness.
  • Mix breadcrumbs, poultry seasoning, parsley, salt and pepper together in a large bowl; set aside.
  • Melt butter in a small skillet. Add the onions and cook over medium-low heat until they are translucent—don’t let them brown.
  • Add the entire contents of the skillet to the breadcrumb mixture and mix well until all the bread is coated with the onions/butter mixture.
  • Divide the stuffing evenly between the 2 pork pieces. Roll up from the short side tightly, forming a “jellyroll.” Secure seam with toothpicks.
  • Place on the rack in the pan and baste with half the butter.
  • Bake for 90 minutes, basting again with the melted butter halfway during the cooking, or until the meat registers 160℉ on a meat thermometer.

Notes

I make soft breadcrumbs by tearing apart plain old white bread and processing it to fine crumbs in my food processor.
