Cranberry Pork Skillet Recipe

"Looking for something new to do with pork, I decided to give it an international flavor," says Brenda Webb of Corpus Christi, Texas. "My love of Mexican and Chinese cuisines influenced this dish."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 medium apples, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1-1/2 pounds pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 2 to 3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

"I wasn't expecting this recipe to taste as good as it did! We used plain boneless pork chops instead of pork tenderloin and left out the water chestnuts. Really yummy!
