Ingredients

10 ounces spinach, frozen
, thawed and squeezed dry
½ cup cheddar cheese
shredded, smoked or sharp
2 ounces salami
hard, finely chopped, or chorizo

divided

1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
divided, or other vegetable oil
1 pound pork tenderloin
trimmed
1 x black pepper
to taste
*

Directions

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Mix together spinach, cheese, chorizo (or salami) and ¼ teaspoon salt in a medium bowl.

Mix well garlic, 1 tablespoon oil and the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt in another small bowl; set aside.

To butterfly the tenderloin, place it on a large cutting board.

Holding the knife blade flat and parallel to the board, make a lengthwise cut through the center of the meat, stopping short of the opposite edge so that the tenderloin remains in one piece.

Open as you open a book. Cover with plastic wrap.

With a meat mallet or heavy pan, pound the pork to an even ¼ inch thickness.

Spread the spinach mixture evenly in the center of the pork, leaving a 1-inch border all around.

Starting at a long side, roll up the pork to enclose the filling.

To keep the stuffing from falling out during roasting, fold in about 1 inch of the two short ends as you roll.

Tie kitchen string firmly lengthwise around the roast to secure the two ends, then tie it crosswise at 2-inch intervals.

Heat the remaining oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat.

Reduce the heat to medium and lightly brown the pork on all sides, about 5 minutes total.

Brush the top with the reserved garlic mixture, season with pepper to taste.

Transfer the pan to the oven and roast the pork until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 145°F, 16 to 20 minutes.

Allow to rest on a clean cutting board or working surface for a few minutes.

Slice and serve warm.
