Pork tenderloin is a much under utilized quick dinner ingredient but this Spicy Mango Orange Pork with Cashews shows how to use it in a quick and easy meal that’s just packed with great flavour.
This Spicy Mango Orange Pork is my kind of quick and easy family dinner. Although, I will also confess that when on the rare occasion that I am left alone for dinner, I can whip up a single serving of this in no time flat.
On those occasions I will most likely very thinly slice a single pork chop to use in this dish rather than the pork tenderloin. As long as it is quickly cooked it works almost as well as the more tender loin meat.
We serve this dish most often over thin Chinese noodles which cook in just a few minutes. It is also terrific with plain steamed rice too.
Everyone who tries this quick and easy mango orange chicken really loves it. It is so colourful and inviting on the plate and the flavours do not disappoint.
Resist the urge to stir fry the pork medallions for longer than a minute or two. Overcooking the pork is the biggest thing to watch out for. Remember that teh pork will get returned to the pan for reheating with the sauce.
This step will finish cooking the pork, even if it is a little underdone at the stir fry stage
That’s because this dish comes together so quickly that your family could be sitting down to dinner in less time than it takes for a take-out delivery. And it’s likely to be a whole lot tastier too.
