I already posted a farther away pic but a close up a pork tenderloin stuffed with (I think it was...) ricotta, maybe walnuts and feta if I remember...? Maybe. And wrapped in bacon. Of course, the bacon is what makes tenderloin edible for me. I hate pork - except bacon. lol. But when you're feeding a mass of hungry Greek inlaws, well.. I got the tenderloins for $1 each because they had a massive sale.

Those loins look magnificent Saphellae!! Not trying to be a smarty pants, but tenderloins are never more than 3 or 4 inches in diameter..kinda like the fillet mignon of beef. Anyway, your dinner was gorgeous!!

OMG Saphellae, those look marvelous! $1 per/tenderloin? That is an awesome price! I'd buy 20 of them at that price!

It looks like you did a perfect job of preparing them!

I never buy just loins - always the tenderloins - They are actually quite small but they are pounded out and stuffed, and rolled, then wrapped in bacon!. Which is why I made 4 ! Lol... Tenderloins are super cheap when they go on sale here.

Tenderloins are more expensive than regular pork loins here.

Bless you guys for the major food porn, your pics have been making me drool for two days solid. They are inspiring me to push my food bounderies. Chinese food is definitely on my agenda, I have a wok I've never used and I am dying to break it in. I love taking pictures of new things I have tried, but I am noticing that they tend to be pretty monotone, I need to find a way to garnish the plate to bring a little color! I'm gonna give posting a few pics a shot, wish me luck! Hopefully I am describing in order....

1. The best cheesecake EVER
2. Beer can chicken with grilled potato wedges with olive oil, herbs, and garlic
3. Braised beef short ribs with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and sauteed green beans
4. Spicy garlic alfredo with blackened chicken and shrimp, and grilled crostini with olive oil and garlic, this was EXTRA yummers....
