This Rueben Stuffed Pork Tenderloin is stuffed with all the elements of a classic Reuben sandwich – pastrami, sauerkraut, Thousand Island dressing and Swiss cheese!

Ingredients

  • 18 ounce trimmed pork tenderloin
  • 3 tbsp thousand Island dressing
  • 2 oz thin sliced turkey pastrami
  • 2 oz reduced fat Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup sauerkraut (drained well)
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon caraway seeds

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Cut a lengthwise slit down the center of the tenderloin to within 1/2- inch of bottom (careful not to cut all the way through). Open tenderloin so it lies flat. On each half, make another, lengthwise slit down the center to within 1/2-inch of bottom; cover with plastic wrap.
  • Flatten to 1/4-in. thickness with a mallet.
  • Remove plastic wrap; spread the Thousand Island along one side of the pork. Layer the pastrami on top, then the Swiss cheese and sauerkraut along the center of the pork.
  • Roll up pork jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Tie the roast at 2-inch intervals with kitchen string each about 12-inches long, then rub the pork with olive oil.
  • Combine the garlic powder, salt and caraway seeds in a small bowl; rub the mixture over the pork.
  • Place on a rack in a shallow baking pan; bake, uncovered, at 425° until a meat thermometer reads 160°, about 35 minutes.
  • Transfer to a serving platter or cutting board. Let it stand 10 minutes before removing string and slicing. Slice into 8 pieces.
