Lentils with Pork Loin
Spiced lentils cooked with lean roast pork loin.
16 oz lentils
2 <span class="measurestring" title="medium whole (2-3/5" dia)">medium whole</span> tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup strips or slices carrots
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp pepper
3 tbsps curry powder
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp ginger
2 tbsps olive oil
8 oz lean pork loin roast
Rinse lentils in cold water. Set aside.
Dice onions and tomatoes. Slice a carrot into small strips, or buy "matchstick" carrots, use a 1/4 cup or more to your taste. Set aside.
Cut leftover pork loin into small pieces. Approximately 8 ounces. Set aside.
Sauté onions in olive oil until soft. Add tomatoes and carrots. Add listed spices, measure to your own taste. Sauté all ingredients for five minutes.
Add pork pieces. Add enough cold water to cover.
Bring to a boil. Turn down and cook until lentils are tender. (You can also cook this in a pressure cooker, following the same instructions, but the cook time will be shorter.)
Serve alone or the side dish of your choice. Rice makes a good side dish, if your diet allows.
