Stuffed tenderloins are a great alternative to a large roast for a smaller gathering. Cream replaces traditional pan drippings to make an elegant sauce.
Real cream is what naturally separates from and floats on top of the milk layer of freshly gathered milk.This recipe is brought to you by:
In a large skillet, melt half of the butter over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic and thyme; sauté, stirring, for 3 min or until softened. Transfer half to a bowl; set aside.
Add mushrooms to skillet; cook, stirring, for about 5 min or until mushrooms are golden. Deglaze with 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the sherry (or 1 tbsp/15 mL vinegar) and boil, scraping skillet. Stir in spinach just until wilted. Transfer to a bowl; stir in 1/4 cup (60 mL) of the cream and the bread crumbs. Season with salt and pepper. Let cool.
Preheat oven to 375 °F (190 °C). Working with one tenderloin at a time, press flat and pound as necessary to make even thickness. Spread evenly with half of stuffing. Starting at one long side, roll up tenderloin, jelly-roll style to enclose filling; tie or secure with skewers. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
In clean skillet, melt remaining butter over medium-high heat; sauté each tenderloin on all sides. Transfer to a shallow roasting pan, seam side down, and roast in oven for about 25 min or until just a hint of pink remains in pork. Tent with foil; let rest for 5 min.
Meanwhile, add reserved onion mixture to skillet over medium heat; cook, stirring, for 3 min or until browned. Add remaining cream and sherry. Boil gently, stirring often, for about 5 min or until reduced and thickened. Season with salt and pepper; keep warm.
Using a serrated knife, slice pork on the diagonal into thick slices and serve with sauce.
