Pork...the "other" white meat. I don't cook with it as often as I would like, but as soon as I do I always question what took me so long. Pork is extremely tender (if cooked correctly) and a healthy meat option. It can be grilled or seared on the stove top, but all it really needs is a little salt and pepper to make the flavor stand out.
This particular recipe is also easy to prepare. Simply season the pork with salt and pepper and brown it in a pan of a little oil. The tangy olive and mustard combination on top gives the pork some bite. Serve this Mediterranean-style dish with a simple vegetable side dish and you have yourself a healthy and low-carb dinner. Enjoy!
