Just in case you feel like a bland pork dinner here you go...
Thai Pork & Papaya over Couscous (serves 4)
1/2 lb pork tenderloin, sliced into 1/2 in strips
2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
1 Papaya peeled, seeds removed cut into 1/2 cubes
1/2 tsp ground ginger
3 cloves garlic, minced
One: In a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups of water to a boil. Stir in coucous, cover and remove from heat. Let sit for 5 min then fluff with a fork.
Two: In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil on medium for 1 minute. Add soy sauce, ginger, garlic and pork and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, occasionally flipping pork strips until meat is cooked through.
Three: Place 1 cup of coucouse on plate, top with 2 oz of pork and 1/2 cup of papaya.
The $6.00 Papaya was not really on the budget this week. But I used some mixed fruit that after I removed the meat from the skillet I heated in the juices. For me the fruit was the best part.
This meal need a lot of work. I like the concept but it needs a ton more flavor. I am thinking that making the Thai sauce with double the ginger and using it more as a marinade before grilling might be a better chioce for us.
Until Next Time....
