Pork Tenderloin Fried Rice – 20 Minutes – Quick and Easy
Pork Tenderloin Fried Rice.
Gammy likes pork tenderloin so, duh, yeah I make it for her lotsa different ways. After all she is kinda special.
How ’bout this!? She gave me some decadent chocolate truffles for my birthday! Oh Yeah, She’s a keeper.
We hadn’t ever had pork tenderloin like this before and, WOW!, it turned out great.
You could make this a one pot meal and cook the rice right in the sauté pan or skillet and drain the liquid off, push the rice to the side of the pan then sear the pork tenderloin. Or….
…..you could have the rice cooking in a separate pot while you get the pork tenderloin and the veggies doing their thing. Or….
……you could use some of that cooked rice that you have in the freezer like I suggested in my Ten Tips for quick and easy meals. Tonight I had some in the freezer so things turned out to be especially quick and easy.
Put a large skillet or sauté pan on at medium high and swirl in just enough olive oil to cover the bottom. Let’s chop up the onion, slice the pork tenderloin and put them in the pan.
Add some salt and pepper and stir a few times as it all cooks.
While it’s cooking core and seed the tomatoes then chop them up. Like we did for this bruschetta recipe.
When the onion is translucent and the pork tenderloin pieces have browned – about 6-7 minutes – put in the peas, tomatoes and the cooked rice.
Optional at this point you could whisk an egg and drizzle it in as you stir things up. And/or drizzle some soy sauce in as you stir.
I didn’t, I just flew with it like this and it turned out fine,,,,no,,it turned out WAY better than just fine.
When the peas and the tomatoes have warmed up – don’t let them cook too much and get soggy – serve up your pork tenderloin fried rice.
It was real good and real easy!
