    Spicy and filling. Pork tenderloins are so easy to cook up. Plus, they were on sale this week, so I stocked up.

    3. 3
      In a large bowl, combine the mustard, oil, lemon juice, garlic, and oregano. Add the pork and toss well to coat all the pieces. Let stand about 10 minutes.

      Coat a large no-stick frying pan with no-stick spray, and place over medium heat for 3 minutes.

      Despite the name, this was not especially spicy. It was, however, delicious, and quickly vacuumed up by the whole family. The cucumber and sour cream sauce was one luscious flavor, the pork was another, and the fresh veggies offered a third note -- all nicely blended in a messy but delightful sandwich. Made for PRMR Jan. 2009.

      This was a really tasty dish. I loved the flavor combination. However I did make a few changes. I used almost two whole teaspoons of dill in the dressing and added a good pinch of salt (I don't think it had much flavor to start with) and doubled the amount of Dijon. My pork wasn't spicy at all. It had great flavor, don't get me wrong, I just don't think it was spicy. I also left out the spinach (forgot it to pick it up at the store). Lastly I didn't microwave the peppers and onion. I just threw them in when the pork was almost done. They softened up just fine and I didn't have to dirty another pan. Thank you for sharing. I will definitely be making this again. Perhaps next time though, I will add in some pepper flakes and try the spinach.
