Cilantro Pork Stir Fry

FullSizeRender-16

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.

 

INGREDIENTS

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

1 lime

DIRECTIONS

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.
