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

  • 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.

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/
