– 1 teaspoon fresh oregano, coarsely chopped
– Zest/juice of 2 oranges
– 1 pork tenderloin (about 1 lb)
– 1/2 teaspoon adobo seasoning with pepper
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 1 (14.5-oz) can diced tomatoes (undrained)
– 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth (or stock)
– 1/3 cup sliced, stuffed green olives

Yellow Rice Pilaf:

– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 1 (8-oz) package low-sodium yellow rice
– 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth (or stock)
– 1/2 cup frozen green peas
– 1 (2-oz) package slivered almonds


Cooking Sequence:
  • Prepare rice through step 1 (10 minutes)
  • Prepare pork, complete rice; serve (25 minutes)
Tomato-Orange Pork:
  • Chop garlic, thyme, and oregano.
  • Zest/grate orange peel (no white; 2 teaspoons); squeeze oranges for juice (1 cup).
  • Cut pork into 1-inch-thick slices; coat with adobo (wash hands).
  • Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2-3 minutes. Place oil in pan, then add pork; cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove pork from pan.
  • Add remaining ingredients to same pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 3-4 minutes or until liquid has reduced by about one-half.
  • Return pork to sauce and reduce heat to low; cook 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, or until pork is 145°F. Serve over rice.
Yellow Rice Pilaf:
  • Preheat medium saucepan on medium-high 2-3 minutes. Place oil in pan, then add rice; cook and stir 1 minute. Add broth; bring to a boil.
  • Cover rice and reduce heat to low; simmer 18-20 minutes or until all liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender.
  • Fluff rice with a fork. Fold in peas and almonds, then cover; let stand 1-2 minutes to warm peas. Serve.
Aprons Advice:
  • Complete your meal with fresh salad blend, crusty bread, and creme cake for dessert.
  • The peas in the rice do not need to be thawed. Adding the peas at the end of the recipe will keep their bright green color.
