I love the complex flavors of Spanish cuisine, and the olive topping in this dish really complements the seasoned pork. This is an easy entree that can be started the day before. —Patterson Watkins, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"Delicious!! The spice combination is unique, yet not overpowering. The green olive salad complimented the pork very well. I followed the recipe as is, except I marinated the meat for nearly 24 hours. I served this with couscous and a tossed salad. My picky hubby even liked it!"
