Sicilian stuffed pork tenderloin, with cheese and dried tomatoes. Today a Sicilian-inspired dish, who cooked my grandmother and I ate after so long in #8217; #8217; cottages on & & Etna Winery Baron of Villagrande, prepared by the young chef Wayne Cannon. Is’ a fairly simple dish, which can be done a day in advance, then cook it a few hours before serving, but elegant and choreography, intense and fruity: the tenderloin is stuffed with chopped Sun-dried tomatoes, Caciocavallo and capers, then browned and baked in a pan, served with sauce, creamy and rich. In short, a greedy and rich dish, like all Sicilian dishes (have a look all of my SICILIAN RECIPES to find many other ideas).
The perfect outline
You can accompany the stuffed pork tenderloin with a side dish of your choice: I had a dinner a little’ formal and so I wanted to abound and I chose mashed potatoes, porcini mushrooms and sautéed chanterelles and some late plums grilled.. If you want to make little effort and stay in tradition, in Sicily the pork (usually a black piglet dei Nebrodi) is often accompanied by simple baked potatoes, crispy and Golden or only with a soft and rich mashed potatoes.
The taste of this stuffed pork tenderloin is very decided and recommended for those who love meat and dishes rich and intense: If you want a dish that impressions your guests, now in anticipation of the holiday season, This would be a good choice. Is, since I am a great admirer of this type of meat, I suggest you also look at all my RECIPES WITH PORK: simple recipes, as the traditional PORK LOIN WITH MILK (even on my YouTube channel VIDEORECIPE), but also creative with PORK WITH PLUM. Have a good day!
