"easy! Great! quick! This is a great use of pork tenderloin, wasn't dry. Very flavorful. Didn't have green pepper but lots of onions. Served Black bean and corn salad with it. Along with a bag of tortilla chips for a great family weeknight meal! As a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home magazine I enjoyed recipes that I can prepare quickly and yet still give lots of flavor to the dish!"
