Stuffed Pork Tenderloin experiment

edited April 2013 in EggHead Forum
I butterflied 2 pork tenderloins, pinned them together, filled them with a cooked wild rice mix and some chopped raw scallions, rolled them up and tied them, then wrapped with bacon, and have been cooking indirect with 2 discs of oak for flavor for just over an hour.

Backup plan is take-out...hopefully it won't come to that.

    You don't need to pin them as long as you overlap opposite to the direction you roll. Sorry that makes no sense. If you roll away from yourself have the one directly in front of you on the bottom. Pound the daylights out of the seam.

    Picture added.  I considered pounding them...but did not.  Hopefully that wasn't a critical error.

    I like to pound them thin:

    You will be fine. Just for future reference this is four splayed and pounded together. Actually its three with the fourth pounded out, sliced and laid over the seams and pounded again. Sorry photobucket is at a snails pace but here is the idea.

    Mine did not come out that well.  It's edible...but not something I'd go out of my way to do again.  I cooked it to about 150F, and the meat is drying out.  For me, I think pork may be just for BBQ.

    My gawd man!  That it is like a really nice sub sandwich, but instead of bread you used pork.  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    @LS, WOW, I used to pay extra for Italian combos with those ingredients. Fantastic Sir!!!!

    Thanks guys. All the fatty meat in the stuffing keeps the pork really moist.

    I did the second one Monsieur Étienne posted awhile back.

    It really is the bomba.

    I had a bunch of leftover italian meats from a party at Christmas time. I added some banana peppers too. It's like a bad-ass pork stromboli roll.
