Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 12 ounces lean pork tenderloin, cut into 1- to 1 ½-inch chunks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 small Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 medium-sized onion, halved and sliced thinly
  • 3/4 cups water, plus more as needed
  • 1 medium-sized yellow pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, halved or quartered lengthwise
  • 3/4 teaspoons dried rosemary, or to taste
  • 1 cup marinara sauce

Directions

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium heat.

Sprinkle the pork with ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Add the pork to the skillet, increase the heat to medium-high and cook, turning the pieces occasionally, until browned, about 6 minutes. Remove to a plate.

Off the heat, coat same skillet with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Add the potatoes, onion, and ½ cup of water. Cook for 1 minute, scraping the bottom of the pan. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add yellow pepper, mushrooms, rosemary, and the remaining salt and pepper to the skillet. Sauté over medium-high heat, until the vegetables are lightly browned, adding 1-2 tablespoons of water if needed to prevent sticking, about 7 minutes.

Stir in the marinara sauce, pork, and ¼ cup of water, and bring to a simmer. Cover the skillet, reduce the heat to medium and cook until vegetables are tender and pork is cooked through, about 7 minutes. Serve.

Pork Shopping Tip

Bone-in cuts tend to be slightly less expensive than their boneless counterparts, and have more flavor.
