dReJ Say: In a word: YUM! This was over the top delicious. As you may know by now, I’m a pretty picky eater, but this combo of the pork tenderloin, plantains and seasonings was amazing. 2 thumbs up and a big A+

Ingredients

  • 1  tablespoon  low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3/4  teaspoon  salt, divided
  • 3/4  teaspoon  dried thyme
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground ginger
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground red pepper
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground allspice
  • 1  pound  pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2  tablespoons  vegetable oil, divided
  • 1  tablespoon  butter
  • 1 1/2  cups  coarsely chopped onion
  • 1  cup  chopped green bell pepper
  • 2  large yellow plantains, chopped (about 3 cups)
  • 1/2  teaspoon  black pepper
  • 4  garlic cloves, minced
  • 1  teaspoon  habanero hot pepper sauce (use whatever hot sauce you like best!)
  • 2  tablespoons  chopped fresh cilantro (don’t skip on the cilantro at the end – it really does finish the meal nicely)

We didn’t change anything about this meal. If you click to the Cooking Light/All Recipes link above, you’ll see it says to use black plantains instead of green/yellow – but our grocery store didn’t have any of those….so we just used what they had.

If you are not sure where to find the  plantains in your store – a good place to look is where the bananas are! Our store has a bunch of “banana family” fruits in the same section.  See below and if you are really awesome, you’ll see a red circle around the plantains in the pic.  :

Plantains look pretty much like bananas. Just bigger.

Calories: This meals comes in at 384 calories. Well spent calories in our opinion. Very filling meal and we will cook this again!
