1 Tbsp. mustard
1 Tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
4 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
1 cup red wine
1/2 cup Saskatoon berries ( you can use blueberries if Saskatoon’s are not available in your area)
3/4 cup red wine
1 Tbsp. maple syrup
Rub tenderloin with mustard, combine remaining ingredients and pour over top. Use a marinating container that and flip back and forth every so often. Let marinade at least 4 hours or overnight.
Next stuff dates with goat cheese. If you have un-pitted dates, simply cut the top off, using a pair of tweezers, pull the pit out. Use a baby spoon to stuff the goat cheese in, it works quite well, the tip of the spoon was perfect for starting to put the cheese in and then using the handle end to push the goat cheese down, worked like a charm!
Thinly slice the tenderloin and then wrap around the dates and secure with toothpicks. Place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place berries, maple syrup and red wine in a pot on high heat. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 3-5 minutes, spoon the juice over the dates and bake for 10-15 minutes(or until meat is cooked to your preferred done-ness), baste with glaze at least once during baking time.
Remove and enjoy … best eaten while warm!
This is the perfect appetizer for any party….your guests won’t even know its moose!
