Directions

  1. Flatten the pork tenderloin slices slightly, and set aside. In a bowl, mix together the lime zest, olive oil, cumin, salt, crushed red pepper, and garlic. Reserve the lime juice. Rub the seasoning mixture onto both sides of the pork slices.
  2. Spray a heavy skillet or ridged grill pan with cooking spray, and place over medium heat. Pan-fry the pork slices until browned on both sides, 6 to 7 minutes per side. After you turn the meat over, pour the reserved lime juice over the meat and continue cooking until no longer pink in the center. Serve hot, topped with pan juices.

This is a fantastic and easy recipe. I followed others suggestions about increasing olive oil and decreasing salt. And the sauce this creates is yummy. I served it with roasted potatoes (olive oil, garlic salt, pepper and a little dried oregano). As a salad, combined bibb lettuce, toasted almonds, mandarin oranges, red onion, with a blush vinaigrette. The dinner was devoured and people continued to talk about it the remainder of the evening.

This smelled great as it was cooking, and was very tasty! I used a little more than the 1 teaspoon of olive oil (didn't measure how much more, but probably around 1 teaspoon?) because the mix looked too dry to be easily rubbed onto the pork. Also thought it was a little on the salty side, so next time may use around 1/4 teaspoon of salt instead.

Delicious, easy, cheap and low cal - what more can a girl ask for? I served it with roasted red peppers and some leftover bowtie pasta with cilantro pesto and that was a perfect balance.
