Originally from the Looneyspoons cookbook, this is low fat! This is a great recipe for using up the leftovers after we have grilled a large pork loin - if you also have pork that is already cooked, just add it to the dish in Step #2. This freezes very well! Just microwave and add a salad and/or bread for a quick meal

3 stars means liked it! I liked this recipe, but if I did it again, I'd substitute sweet for regular potatoes. I used left-over pork chops instead of pork tenderloin for the meat and left out the okra/zucchini. Ate with corn bread.
