This recipe is for Consolidation Phase. You could make this with chicken or beef, as well.
To make this cruise compliant leave out the orange… it’s that simple 🙂
It is also Paleo, Whole30 and Atkins compliant.
PAN-FRIED MOROCCAN PORK
1 chilli, seeded and diced
1 tsp chilli powder (I used medium heat)
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 1/2 tsp lemon or lime juice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 TBS olive oil
1 TBS coconut oil
1 lb. pork, cut into strips
1 orange, 1/2 sliced, 1/2 for juice
4 Tbs fresh parsley, chopped
In a large bowl place the olive oil, chilli, chilli powder, garlic, limon juice, cinnamon and cumin. Mix well.
Place the strips of pork in the rub mix and put lid on and shake, shake, shake to coat. Put in the fridge to marinate for 30 minutes.
Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan and cook the pork on medium heat for 3 minutes.
Flip the pork strips over, squeeze the juice of 1/2 the orange on top of the meat and add the slices from the other half. Cook 3-4 more minutes, until the pork is done.
Stir in the chopped parsley and serve.
Well, I find myself with another 1/2 day of work… this is because I worked all day yesterday because of a birth and they owe me 😀
Anyhoo, found myself at home deciding lunch should be more fun than 2 tea eggs and some ham slices, so this is what I whipped together. I’m eating it while I type and it is yummy!!
Citrus Pork & Onions
4 oz. of lean pork, cubed
1/2 large red onion, cut in big chunks
1 TBS olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder (I have a grinder… see pic)
1 tsp Trader Joes Lemon Pepper seasoning
1 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
Prep: Put garlic powder and lemon pepper seasoning in a small dish, by doing this you don’t get too much moisture on your grinders and end up with grinders that don’t work… a lot less frustrating! Also, roll your lime before you cut it between your palm and the counter top… you will get more juice!
Put olive oil in pan or wok and heat to medium/high. Place pork cubes in and place lid on for 2 minutes. Sprinkle half of the seasonings on the meat and replace lid for 1 minute.
Place your onion chunks in with the meat and add the rest of the seasonings.
Squeeze the juice of the lime onto the meat and onions and give it a stir.
Throw on the mustard, give it a stir, replace lid for 2 minutes.
Oh my is it good… the sauce at the bottom of the bowl is yummy!
