1  Pork Tenderloin

¼ cup  Café Tequila Citrus Habanero Sauce

½ cup  Crumbled Blue Cheese

4  Fresh Figs, (diced small)

3 – 6  Slices of Bacon

Fresh Cress

Salt

Instructions:

  1. Marinate the pork tenderloin with Café Tequila Citrus Habanero Sauce in a zip-top bag for 12 hours.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the diced figs and crumbled blue cheese.
  3. Butterfly the pork tenderloin by slicing lengthwise almost all the way through, then lay the meat open.
  4. Season all surfaces of the pork liberally with salt and freshly cracked pepper.
  5. Evenly distribute the fig/blue cheese mixture down the middle of the marinated pork leaving about ½ inch of space on the edges.
  6. Roll the pork back up into the shape of a tenderloin, encasing the stuffing with the meat.
  7. Wrap the tenderloin evenly with the slices of bacon and secure with toothpicks.
  8. Place the tenderloin on a preheated grill, directly over the heat.
  9. Grill about 20 -25 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the tenderloin is at the desired level of doneness.
  10. Remove from the grill and let rest loosely in foil for about 10 minutes before slicing.
  11. Sprinkle with a small amount of fresh cress and serve.
