How to make it

  • Balsamic Honey Vinaigrette: Place all ingredients in a small jar and shake well. Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Slit the tenderloin(s) in half lengthwise and then using a rolling pin or a flat (not toothed) meat mallet to pound the two halves flatter and to make them a bit wider. Season the pork with salt and pepper.
  • Make the Stuffing:
  • Melt the butter in a frying pan and sauté the onions gently until soft. Add the herbs and stir once or twice. Add the mushrooms and raise the heat just a bit. Add a pinch of salt and stir. The mushroom should exude some juice. When the juices have almost evaporated, empty the contents of the pan into a bowl. Allow it to cool slightly and add the rest of the ingredients. Stir the mixture together and season with salt and pepper.
  • Spoon the stuffing on to one half of the tenderloin. Pat it down lightly to keep it a bit firm. Place the other half on top. Smear with 1 tbsp of the softened butter. Using kitchen twine tie everything together at about inch and a half to two inch intervals to make a nice bundle.
  • Using the other tbsp softened butter, grease the bottom of a roasting pan.
  • Carefully transfer the tenderloin to the pan and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes (check after 30 with a meat thermometer). When the roast is cooked, remove it from the pan to a cutting board. Tent with foil.
  • In a salad bowl, gently toss the Mâche and pears with a light drizzle of the vinaigrette. Keep chilled while carving the roast.
  • Remove the strings from the roast and carve across into tenderloin.
  • Distribute salad to serving plates and sprinkle with walnuts and gorgonzola. Fan the pork along side. Drizzle any remaining vinaigrette around plate, if desired.
