A down-home country pork roast married to a sophisticated medley of fruit, vegetables, rice, cheese, and spices.


  • 1 8 oz pork tenderloin
  • 1/4 cup cooked long-grain wild rice blend
  • 2 Tbs dried apricots, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup baby spinach
  • 3 Tbs goat cheese
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbs olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 400ē.
  • Butterfly cut the pork tenderloin lengthwise.
  • In a bowl, combine cooked rice, apricots, garlic, and rosemary; salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place spinach along the center of the pork, top with goat cheese and wild rice mixture.
  • Roll the pork tenderloin, ensuring the stuffing is bound in the center. Using butchers' twine, securely tie the stuffed pork. Rub the outside of the roll with Dijon mustard.
  • Heat olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Place pork roll in skillet and brown lightly, turning until meat is a consistent pinkish brown.
  • Transfer the skillet to the oven and roast for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand an additional 15 minutes.
  • Remove butchers' twine and slice inch-wide cross sections. Serve immediately.
