  • 2 – pork tenderloins, 1 ½ to 2 lbs. each

  • ½ small zucchini, cut into rounds then each round cut in half
  • 1 tomato, thinly sliced

For the Seasoning:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons each: minced fresh oregano and thyme (or 1 teaspoon each dried)


  • Preheat oven to 420 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place pork on the baking sheet and make cuts every 2 inches along the width of the tenderloins, being careful not to cut all the way through.
  • Fill the cuts with the veggies, alternating pepper, and zucchini.
  • In a small bowl, mix together all the seasoning ingredients. Pour this over the pork.
  • Place the tenderloins in the oven and roast for 25 minutes. Meat thermometer should read 145 degrees. Remove pork from oven and let rest for 5 minutes before cutting it into slices to serve.

***There may be some extra veggies on hand after stuffing the pork. Tossed in a small amount of olive oil and roasted beside the pork makes a great addition to the recipe.
