Prosciutto Wrapped Tenderloin

I don’t like pastry with meat products so I took away the entire pastry part of this recipe. I love eating piggies: bacon, prosciutto, 火腿, ham, pork, etc…

[100% organic]

  • ½ cup dried mangoes, finely chopped
  • 1 pork tenderloin, medium sized
  • 10 slices prosciutto
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1 handful fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 450°F. Trim the pork tenderloin of any excess fat and skin.

Slice the tenderloin down the middle lengthwise, creating a pit in the middle. Place chopped mangoes in the middle. Lay out a large piece of parchment paper on the counter. Arrange the pieces of prosciutto in the center, overlapping them enough to create solid layer that is as long as the tenderloin. Sprinkle the prosciutto with the salt, pepper, and parsley.

Using the parchment paper to assist, wrap the prosciutto around the tenderloin to completely enclose in a package. Place the tenderloin on a parchment lined half sheet pan and bake for about 30 minutes. Remove the tenderloin from the oven, transfer to a cooling rack and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
