Pork pinwheels with a veggie filling are a creative, colorful way to get the family to dinner.

Ingredients

  • 2 pork tenderloins, 1 pound each
  • 1 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp dried thyme leaves, crushed
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper, ground
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 Tbs fennel seed, crushed
  • 1-3 tsp lemon pepper seasoning

Directions

  • Using sharp knife, cut lengthwise slit down center of 1 pork tenderloin almost to, but not through, bottom of tenderloin. Open tenderloin so it lies flat; cover with plastic wrap. Working from the center to edges, lightly pound tenderloin with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick; remove plastic wrap. Repeat with remaining tenderloin.
  • Heat oven to 325 F. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add red bell pepper, onion, celery, thyme, garlic salt, red pepper and paprika; cook about 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender; stirring frequently. Spread vegetable mixture evenly over each flattened tenderloin to within 1 inch of edges. Starting with shortest side, roll up; secure edges of each roll with toothpicks or tie each with string. In small bowl combine fennel seed and lemon-pepper; press mixture onto top and sides of each tenderloin roll. Place rolls seam-side down on rack in shallow pan. Roast for about 45 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 160 F. Let rolls stand 5 minutes. Remove toothpicks or string; slice.

Serving Suggestion: Try these tenderloin pinwheels with rice pilaf and grilled zucchini.
