Streaky & apple pork tenderloin. A whole pork tenderloin stuffed with apples cooked with thyme and rosemary and then wrapped in streaky bacon. Yum! ????
First, gather all of the ingredients together.
Finely chop the onion, rosemary and thyme. Peel and remove the core from the apples and then cut into small pieces.
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat and add the apples, onions, and herbs.
Cook through for 6-8 minutes until the apple has softened. Keep stirring so as not to burn the apple.
Once cooked leave to cool for 5-10 minutes.
Heat the oven to 220C / 200C Fan / 450F.
Remove any excess fat from the pork tenderloin and then butterfly it by cutting down the center leaving around 1 inch. The fold open.
Cove the pork tenderloin with kitchen film and gently bash it with a tenderizing mallet until it is all of even thickness.
Now, spoon some of the apple filling across the center of the tenderloin and then fold the pork tenderloin together securing it with cocktail sticks.
Next, lay the streaky bacon rasher down next to each other until the reach the length of the pork tenderloin. Place the stuffed pork tenderloin on top and wrap the bacon around the pork removing the cocktail sticks as you go.
Place the wrapped pork tenderloin on a greased roasting tray seam down.
Place the pork tenderloin in the oven for 30 minutes. If you have one then use a cooking thermometer to check the inside temperature of the pork. It is cooked when it reaches 63C / 145F. If the pork is cooked but the bacon is not crispy then finish this off under the grill, turning to ensure an even color.
Once cooked, leave the streak apple pork tenderloin to rest for 10 minutes and then slice and serve with fresh seasonal vegetables. Yum!
