This dish is packed with flavor and is a nice alternative to roasted pork tenderloin. I use pork tenderloin but any tender piece of pork will work. Cilantro goes really well with pork and the lime brightens the dish up. This recipe is from the ” The Paleo Cookbook” and will not disappoint.
4 gloves garlic minced
1 Tbs ginger, finely chopped or minced
1/4 cup olive oil
1 lb pork tenderloin
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
Marinate the sliced tenderloin in a bowl or large zip lock bag with and 1/8 cup of the olive oil, half the cilantro, garlic and ginger. Make sure that the ingredients are combined well and leave in refrigerator for an hour or two.
Heat up a wok or large skillet on medium high heat and stir fry the pork. Remove pork and add the remaining 1/8 cup oil and stir fry the onions for 3 minutes or until translucent and soft. Add the bell pepper and stir-fry for an additional 3 minutes. Place the pork back in the wok and squeeze the the lime over the pork and add the other half of the cilantro. Sir and cook for another 1-2 minutes allowing all the flavors the blend.
