      Place pork in a wide nonstick frying pan.

    3. 3
      Uncover pan; add onions, celery, oregano, and sage.
    4. 4

      This is one of my GD's favorite recipes. I first found it in the Sunset Low-Fat Cookbook back in 1994 and have often made it since then. I hope others try it as you're right, they won't be sorry. Thanks for sharing this here, now I don't have to post it. Gotta go check out the rest of your recipes.
