If you are trying to avoid gluten, then it is quite hard to find recipes for stuffing that do not include bread. This is why we came up with this quinoa stuffed pork tenderloin recipe. Here is what you need for it:

pork tenderloin

  • 1/2 cup water
  • ¼ cup of quinoa
  • ½ of an onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 small apple, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp of white wine
  • 4 mushrooms
  • 1 pound of pork tenderloin
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon

Quinoa Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

Firstly, put the water to a boil over medium heat. The, add the quinoa to the boiling water and let it cook. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot and let everything simmer until the quinoa becomes tender and the water is absorbed. Set this aside and move onto the next step of the recipe.

Secondly, heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Now put in all of the following ingredients: onion, garlic, apples, raisins and mushrooms. Stir gently from time to time so all of them cook evenly. The onion has to become tender and translucent after about 8 minutes of cooking. From here, add in your wine and cook some more until the liquid evaporates. Combine this mixture with your quinoa and set it aside.

Thirdly, preheat your oven at 425 degrees. Now, cut your pork tenderloin from one side of it, horizontally. The cut has to be within an inch of the other side. Open up your steak like you would a book. Season it with cinnamon, salt and black pepper then spoon out the quinoa filing onto tenderloin. Close the steak back up and secure it with either toothpicks or a kitchen twine.

The last step is to roast your pork tenderloin in the oven for about 35 minutes. Once it is cooked, cover it with an aluminum foil and let it cool off for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
