Recipe Ingredients for Pesto Stuffed Pork Loin

1 Cooking spray
4 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin
1 cup pesto
1 pinch Salt
1 pinch ground black pepper
1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey mustard
2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
2 tablespoons honey

Recipe Directions for Pesto Stuffed Pork Loin

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a shallow roasting pan with cooking spray.

  2. Using a sharp knife, cut pork lengthwise 3/4 of the way through. Place in a prepared pan and spread sun-dried tomato pesto in the incision. Fold pork back in half and use a metal or wooden skewer to close the seam. Season with salt and black pepper.

  3. In a small bowl, combine vinegars, honey mustard honey and thyme. Spoon mixture over pork.

  4. Roast 45 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer reads 155 degrees F (pork may still be pink in the center and that's O.K.).

  5. Let pork rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing crosswise into 1-inch thick slices
