With 5 Ingredients or Less, you can Make this Delicious and Healthy Pork loin and Cabbage for a Quick and Easy Dinner.
- 1 lb. pork loin, cut into thin medallions
- 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 head green cabbage, thinly sliced
- 3 Tbsp. soy sauce or Tamari
Heat a large, high-sided skillet over medium heat. Add the pork and season with salt and black pepper, if desired. Cook until the pork develops a golden crust on all sides and is almost cooked through, approximately 6-8 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.
Add the olive oil to the same skillet, along with the red onion and cabbage. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and cook until the veggies become soft and slightly glossy, around 15-20 minutes.
Return the pork to the skillet and sprinkle with the tamari or coconut aminos. Cook until the pork is fully cooked through and the mixture develops a nice glaze, approximately 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and serve immediately. Enjoy!
Pork freezes very well so don’t be afraid to purchase more than you need and then break it down into individual meal sizes. Store the servings in freezer bags and write the date on the bag with a label and marker.
