Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Stuffing, Buttery Haricot Verts and Cinnamon Sweet Potato

5:04 PM

Welcome to our blog, and thanks for reading! We're so excited to embark on this awesome culinary adventure.

Sometimes, every once in a while, bacon makes everything better. This dinner is no exception. Pork tenderloin is a great cut of meat-- the filet mignon of pork-- but it can dry out easily, so bacon helps lock in moisture. It's an indulgence, though; if you'd like a healthier option, skip the bacon and cover the tenderloin in foil instead.

Haricot verts, also called filet beans or squeaky beans, are slender, delicate French green beans. They cook more quickly and sound way more sophisticated; however, if you can't find them, regular fresh green beans are just as delicious.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes, or until pork reaches 160˚F

Product Love: 
Four Sisters and a Brother, gluten-free stuffing
Earth Balance Soy Free Buttery Spread, vegan butter alternative

1. Prepare your Stuffing
Is it possible to make gluten-free stuffing? Sure. Did we? No. This allergy-friendly stuffing is from Four Sisters and a Brother, to which we added mirepoix: carrots, onion, and celery. 

2. Wrap your Pork
If the bacon doesn't stay by itself, tie it with a few pieces of twine. Cooking it over your stuffing will allow the juices to combine and will result in enhanced stuffing flavor; however, for a healthier option, cook separately. Cook for 15 minutes at 450˚F, then 20 minutes at 400˚F; beginning with a higher temperature will help crisp the bacon. 

3. Sauté your Haricot Verts
While your meal is cooking, sauté your green beans on the stovetop. We added salt, a splash of lemon juice and a little bit of Earth Balance Soy Free Natural Buttery Spread, our favorite butter alternative (contains flavor derived from corn). 

4. Cook your Sweet Potatoes
Wash them first; scrub them with a little brush. And, let's be honest... the easiest way to make sweet potatoes is in the microwave. We dolloped Earth Balance alternative butter swirled with cinnamon on top, but cinnamon alone would be delicious (and a little healthier). 

Remove the pork and stuffing from the oven when the pork reaches 160˚F and the bacon looks nice and crispy. 


See you soon,
