Stuffed Pork Tenderloin Recipe:
When prepared correctly, pork (especially tenderloin), is quite juicy and flavorful. We also love that pork reheats well. Some of our favorite pork recipes are baked pork tenderloin and one-pan pork chops. We love serving this mushroom stuffed pork tenderloin for special occasions.
Ingredients for Stuffed Pork Tenderloin:
You will need a 1 1/2 pound pork tenderloin for this recipe. You can buy pork tenderloin just about anywhere but we prefer Costco. They sell a pack of 4 for about $20 which is so reasonable. You can easily double or triple this recipe for a larger party.
You can use white or brown mushrooms or a combination and you can swap out parsley for dill (just use less dill).
How to Trim Pork Tenderloin:
Always remove the silver skin or the white fibrous layer. The silver skin does not not break down while cooking and ends up being chewy and tough. To remove Silver Skin from Pork Tenderloin by sliding a knife under the silver skin and running it in one direction just under the silver skin, being careful not to trim away meat.
How to Make Stuffed Pork Tenderloin:
- Cut down the long end of the tenderloin and open it like a book.
- Pound the tenderloin until 1/2″ thick
- Top with mushroom filling and secure with toothpicks
- Season and sear on the skillet then roast to finish it off
Brushing the pork with the pan drippings imparts amazing flavor – the caramelized seasoned juices from the tenderloin have incredible concentrated flavor and glazing it over the tenderloin gives it a tantalizing golden glow.

How to Stuff Pork Tenderloin
- Remove Silver Skin from Pork Tenderloin. Cut a slit all the way down the long end of your tenderloin, making sure not to cut all the way through. Open tenderloin like a book, cover with a sheet of plastic wrap and pound with the flat side of a meat mallet until 1/2" thick without tearing through the meat.
- Spread mushroom mixture evenly over the surface of the tenderloin, leaving 1/2" at the borders. Roll tightly starting with the long end (hot-dog style) and secure the ends with 6-7 toothpicks. Poke toothpicks through parallel to each other to create a flat cooking surface. Season all over with 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper.
- Heat the same skillet over medium heat and add 2 Tbsp oil. Once oil is hot, place tenderloin in the skillet (toothpick-side-down) and sear about 2 minutes per side (6-8 minutes total). Transfer the skillet with the tenderloin to the oven and bake at 400˚F for 18-20 min or until an instant read thermometer reads 145-150˚F in the thickest portion of the meat.
- Transfer to a cutting board, brush with the pan drippings and rest 10 minutes before slicing into rings. Brush with pan drippings for more flavor and garnish with parsley if desired.
