Imagine a meal with three ingredients…that is one of the best meals you have ever eaten. Crack, heroin and Vodka do not count.
Nicki and I were shopping at Costco the other evening and we were both hungry and tired. What to do? She noticed a large bag of red, yellow and orange bell peppers. We had pork loin (one of the leanest cuts of meat available. Comparable to Chicken breast) and olive oil. She had an idea from her travels in Italy:Pepperonata.
I sliced 10 oz. of pork loin into long, very thin strips and started these cooking in a large amount of olive oil. The heat was on medium. I sliced about 9 large bell peppers into thin slices and added these to the pork. I cooked the whole concoction down until the peppers were melting and most of the water was removed. The sugars from the peppers were released and the dish was amazingly sweet and filling. 1/4 bottle of olive oil will do that I guess! Total cooking time was 30 minutes but most of that was just easy simmering that required little monitoring.
Give it a go!
