Adventures of Eating with dReJ: healthy, cheap, delicious

Pork Roll Served with Brussels Sprouts & Mashed Potatoes

I’m a huge fan of pork tenderloin. It’s a lean meat  but has tons of flavor. Since the past few weekends have been nice, we’ve been on a “grilling” rampage so a pork tenderloin seemed like a good choice. Instead of just having a meat and potato kind of meal – we wanted to integrate some more vegetables. We belong to a fruits/veggie co-op so we had some fresh spinach to use this week. I’ll share a few pictures here and some general guidelines for putting this together. It was SUPER delicious, and reheated nicely for a bring to lunch meal. We picked two sides – mash potatoes and brussels sprouts – but you could easily trade out for 2 of your favorite sides!

What you need:
Fresh spinach (or thawed/drained frozen would work, too)
Garlic (to taste)
Feta (8oz package – look for the reduced fat kind!)
Seasonings: Salt, Pepper, Oregano, Red Pepper Flakes
Pork Tenderloin – at our grocery store they have pre-packaged pork loin that are seasoned – we like the peppercorn & garlic seasoned one! It’s usually about 18oz

So add the spinach, garlic and a little EVOO to a pan and wilt the spinach, mixing in the seasonings (salt, pepper, oregano and red pepper flakes).

Almost ready!

Slice open the tenderloin so you can add the stuffing!

Put the spinach mixture on the meat and sprinkle the feta cheese on top

Roll the pork loin up carefully (see right). Use skewers to secure it before you grill/cook it!

We grilled ours - you want it to be cooked through to 140 degrees. Be sure to rotate it so it doesn't burn!

Once cooked - slice it up and it's ready to serve!
