Ingredients

  • 250 ml (1 cup) dates, pitted, coarsely chopped
  • 250 ml (1 cup) orange juice
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) vegetable oil
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) butter
  • 2 pork tenderloins, about 500 g (1 lb) each

  • 160 ml (2/3 cup) blue cheese, crumbled
  • Butcher string or toothpicks

Preparation

  1. In a saucepan, heat the dates and orange juice over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally (do not boil).
  2. Remove from the heat and let swell for about 15 minutes, stirring a couple of times.
