Recipe Directions for Pork, Tenderloin Cajun Pinwheels

  1. Using sharp knife, cut lengthwise slit down center of 1 pork tenderloin almost to, but not through, bottom of tenderloin. Open tenderloin so it lies flat; cover with plastic wrap.

  3. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add red bell pepper, onion, celery, thyme, garlic salt, red pepper and paprika; cook about 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender; stirring frequently.

  4. Spread vegetable mixture evenly over each flattened tenderloin to within 1 inch of edges. Starting with shortest side, roll up; secure edges of each roll with toothpicks or tie each with string.

  5. In small bowl combine fennel seed and lemon-pepper; press mixture onto top and sides of each tenderloin roll.

  6. Place rolls seam-side down on rack in shallow pan. Roast for about 45 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 155 degrees F.

  7. Let rolls stand 5 minutes. Remove toothpicks or string; slice.
