4 thin pork loin chop

juice of 1 lemon

1 tbs. olive oil

2 crushed garlic cloves

1 tsp. chopped thyme

½ chopped onion

1 cup sliced mushrooms

1 chopped tomato

2 tbs. chopped parsley

 

Directions:

1 – In a bowl, season the meat with salt, garlic, olive oil, thyme, ½ lemon juice and Tabasco pepper. Let it rest in refrigerator for about 1 hour.

2 – After that, heat olive oil in sauté pan and put the pork. Let browned for about two minutes, turn and let it cook for more 2 minutes.

3 – Add onion and sauté.

4 – Put mushrooms and tomatoes.

5 – Cover the pan and cook for about 3 minutes.

6 – Finish with the parsley and the other half of the lemon juice.

 

Tips:

  • I prefer pork well done but not dry. Therefore, I find it easier to cook well when the meat has a thin cut. But the cooking time and the thickness of the meat will depend on your taste (just remember that eating raw pork is not recommended).
  • To serve, green salad and steamed vegetables.
  • Another side dish option: rice and beans.
