Pan-Seared Pork with Potatoes and Lemon

Source: Everyday Food, April 2009

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound red potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound)
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add potatoes; season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing occasionally, until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water; cover, and cook until potatoes are tender and liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Add scallions; cook 1 minute. Transfer mixture to a bowl, and keep warm (reserve skillet).

  2. Using a sharp knife, cut tenderloin crosswise into 12 equal slices. Press pork slices between your hands to flatten evenly.

  3. In skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Working in two batches, cook pork until browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side, adding lemon slices in the last 2 minutes of cooking. Serve pork with lemons and potatoes, topped with cilantro.

    I thought this was very good I've made it several times. Everyone enjoyed it even the kids!

    So Sarah.... If you use a spatula to turn the potatoes you can turn them evenly, just sayin'...

    Made this tonight for myself. I cut back on the ingredient amount for one. I also used a thin pork chop,added diced red pepper ( i had a piece in the frig) I also put lemon pepper on my pork. I served this with a garden salad. This was an excellent, easy , quick, very tasty recipe.

    I've made this several times, it's one of my easy go to meals. It is an interesting flavor combination with the lemon and a different way to cook potatoes.

    Used it as my EASTER dinner. E-A-S-Y. Great way to cook potatoes, too.

    I really liked this recipe. I didn't have pork loin, so I used pork chops. It took a little longer to cook, but was delicious and easy!

    I didn't make the potatoes, but the pork was delicious. I never thought to cut a pork loin that way. What a great idea... makes cooking it quicker and easier than roasting the loin. And I love the browned sides from sauteeing it... which you don't get when it goes in the oven.

    This is a wonderful recipe! My husband and I made it a couple of days after I received my April issue. We will make it again - it was really good- it tasted like a restaurant meal/
