  • 2-3 lb pork tenderloin
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 1 pear peeled & diced
  • 1 orange
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce
  • 4 oz crumbled goat cheese


  • in skillet over medium, heat olive oil 
  • add onion and pear and saute until onions are soft - about 2-3 min
  • zest orange into the skillet and add cinnamon. saute 1 min more
  • deglaze the pan by juicing the orange into the skillet and stir
  • add spinach and stir until wilted - remove skillet from heat 
  • preheat oven to 350 and prepare baking dish for tenderloin by spraying lightly (or you can use a cast iron skillet and go from stove top to oven)
  • cut 4 lengths of butchers twine approximately 12 inches each
  • butterfly pork tenderloin by slicing 1/3 of top of tenderloin ALMOST all the way through and open up like a book. on the thicker side, slice 1/3 of the way down again - all along the tenderloin - but NOT all the way through and open like a book the other way (see photo above) 
  • once tenderloin is open and flat - spread pear mixture on loin leaving at least an inch around the edge 
  • spoon cranberry sauce over top of pear mixture
  • sprinkle goat cheese over cranberry sauce
  • start at one end and roll and tuck the loin with all the stuffing 
  • any of the stuffing that falls out when rolled - tuck into the ends of the roll
  • slide one piece of twine under the end of the loin and tie - continue doing the other end and then do the two strings in the middle 
  • heat skillet on medium high and add a tablespoon of olive oil 
  • when skillet is hot, add loin and sear on all sides - this will take approx 5 min
  • place pork roulade (rolled pork) into baking dish and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes
  • temp check pork to 140-145 degrees and remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes
  • slice pork into 1” thick slices 


  • you can use the one cast iron skillet for everything if you'd like - you might want to wipe it out after removing the filling 
  • you can swap cranberry sauce for fresh cranberries. If you do so - saute with the onion for at least 10 minutes - then add in pear for just 1-2 min 
  • if the pork tenderloin is still thick and/or uneven - feel free to pound lightly with meat tenderizer smooth side 
  • feel free to use a marinated pork tenderloin if you like 
  • you can also use a full pork LOIN vs. tenderloin - it will just take longer to reach 140 degrees
