It's so easy to make Pork Tenderloin with Prosciutto ahead of time. First, roll the tenderloin in prosciutto and breadcrumbs mixture. Then add the sage and tie with kitchen string. Place the prepared pork tenderloin wrapped in prosciutto to a large vacuum bag. Using a high-quality vacuum machine, vacuum the pork tenderloin. Place in the freezer for up to 30 days. Once you decide to make it, bring it to room temperature and continue with the process.

For this recipe, we used a Slovenian product, vacuum machine SV2000 from Status Metlika. We love how quick and easy it is to use and it's a great way to store fresh veggies and fruits and finished dishes too.
