    6

Ingredients

  • 2 x ½-lb (340 g) pork tenderloins
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) olive oil, for drizzling
  • 3 cups (720 ml) apple wood or cherry wood chips

Goat Cheese Stuffing

  • 8 oz. (226 g) firm goat cheese
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) roughly chopped fresh oregano
  • salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup (240 ml) blanched spinach leaves
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) dried currants

Red Currant Glaze

  • ½ cup (120 ml) red zinfandel wine
  • 1 cup (240 ml) pre-made red currant jellygyu
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) lemon juice

Directions

  1. For the goat cheese stuffing, add goat cheese, oregano, salt and ground black pepper to a bowl and mix to combine thoroughly.
  2. Using a sharp knife, carefully open the tenderloins like a book by making a slit down the length of the meat without going all the way through the other side.
  3. Lay the meat between two sheets of parchment paper and pound with a rolling pin or meat tenderizer to an even thickness of about ½-inch (1 cm).
  4. Lift the top sheet off the parchment paper and drizzle the meat with olive oil.
  5. Lightly season the pork with salt ground black pepper.
  6. Lay blanched spinach leaves down evenly over flattened pork.
  7. Crumble the Goat Cheese Stuffing over spinach layer and scatter with dried currants.
  8. Roll the pork up lengthwise to form a large sausage shaped roll and tie with butcher twine.
  9. Place on a baking tray and drizzle with oil.
  10. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to cook.
  11. Place 2 cups (480 ml) of the wood chips in water to soak for 1 hour.
  12. To prepare Red Currant Glaze, add red wine, red currant jelly, and ground black pepper in a medium-sized saucepan.
  13. Place the saucepan over medium heat and let cook for 5 minutes.
  14. Remove pan from heat and add the lemon juice and mint. Set aside.
  15. Prepare barbecue by preheating one side of the grill to 400F (205C) and the other side of the grill to 375F (190C).
  16. Drain wet chips from water and squeeze out excess liquid. Place on a large sheet of foil, add dry wood chips and mix to combine. Wrap foil loosely around chips to form a pouch. Using a fork, poke holes on both sides of the pouch. Remove the grill grate from the barbeque and place the smoke pouch directly on the high heat source.
  17. Brush the grill with oil.
  18. Place tenderloins over side of the grill heated to 375F (190C) and cook for 3 minutes or until golden char marks are achieved.
  19. Flip the pork and cook for another 3 minutes.
  20. Turn the heat source directly under pork off.
  21. Using a pastry brush, glaze the tenderloins with red current mixture.
  22. When smoke appears, turn the heat source under smoke pouch to 325F (165C).
  23. Let pork smoke for 15 minutes and then glaze again. Let cook for 10 more minutes and remove.
  24. Place on tray and loosely tent with foil.
  25. Let meat rest 10 minutes before slicing.

Note: Cooking times and temperatures will vary depending on the size and type of your barbecue.
