Pork Tenderloin with Stuffing

4 celery ribs, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
6 cups cubed day-old bread (1/2-inch cubes)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 pork tenderloins (1 pound each)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

In a small skillet, saute celery and onion in butter until tender. In a bowl, combine the bread cubes, celery mixture, salt and pepper; set aside.

Cut a lengthwise slit down the center of each tenderloin to within 1/2 in. of bottom. Open tenderloins so they lie flat; cover with plastic wrap. Flatten to 1/2-in. thickness. In a large skillet, brown pork in oil on both sides over medium-high heat.

Spoon stuffing onto one tenderloin. Top with the second tenderloin; tie with kitchen string. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.

Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 50-60 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into meat reads 160. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Makes 6 servings.
