Pork, pork, pork! A great protein source for the winter season! We pair this with Brussels sprouts: Instead of cooking them with vinegar or butter like you may be used to, we caramelize this underrated vegetable to bring out tremendous flavor! Give it a try!
Preparation Time: 45 minutes
2 tbsps macadamia nut oil
1 cup sliced onions
½ cup crumbled turkey bacon
1-2 tbsp minced garlic
1 lb Brussels sprouts (trimmed and quartered)
1 hot pepper, sliced thinly
1 1/2 lbs lean pork loin (boneless, thinly sliced)
Dried spices & herbs to your taste: basil, oregano, cilantro, and/or pepper
1. In a skillet, heat macadamia oil with onions, garlic, turkey bacon, hot pepper, and Brussels sprouts. Sauté together.
2. If it starts to look a little dry, drizzle a little more macadamia nut oil and continue sautéing the vegetables and bacon. Add pinches of herbs and spices to your taste such as oregano, basil, cilantro and/or black pepper.
3. Add the pork and sauté everything together. Cook meat thoroughly.
4. Serve immediately and enjoy!
Tip from Binks: Be very careful when preparing a hot pepper. If you touch the exposed flesh, do not touch your eyes or any part of your skin-it can cause a very severe chemical reaction!
