Apple and Blue Cheese Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

With pork tenderloin and asparagus on sale, this meal was a no-brainer. Simple for weeknights with go-to ingredients apples, blue cheese and mustard. Enjoy!

Apple and Blue Cheese Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

1 1/2 pound pork tenderloin

2 tablespoons dijon mustard
1/2 apple, cut into thin slices
3 ounces crumbled blue cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butterfly your pork tenderloin with a sharp knife. Spread mustard on inside of the pork and then layer with apple slices and blue cheese. Fasten the pork tenderloin closed with kitchen twine or toothpicks and season with salt and pepper. Bake until the pork is 150 degrees, about 30 to 35 minutes. I served with roasted asparagus, which was seasoned with salt and pepper and tossed with olive oil and lemon juice.

just tried this and it's my new favorite recipe. I added apples, leeks, onions, more apples, and potatoes to the pan and baked them with it to get more flavor. it was great! Thanks!
