Spicy Honey Orange Sliced Pork. A sweet, sour and spicy quick dinner idea using quick cooking sliced pork tenderloin that’s ready in minutes.
Still another quick and easy Asian inspired dinner idea today. I have a bit of a fondness for sweet and spicy dishes and this one does not disappoint.
Pork tenderloin is a household favourite, especially for quick stir fried dishes. It cooks incredibly fast and has more flavour than chicken breasts in my opinion.
Pork tenderloin is a better choice for stir frying quickly because it stays so tender. Careful not to overcook it though. Because it is so thin it can dry out quickly.
You can serve this over plain steamed rice if you prefer but I love serving it over my favorite skinny Chinese noodles.
