Pepe, this is delicious. Thank you for this recipe!
I made the pork last night (I did not have carrots so I didn't try the salad yet, but I do plan to because it sounds very fresh and delicious.)
I didn't have a pork tenderloin, but I did have a small pork roast, which I sliced into thin cutlets. It worked perfectly.
(I'm trying not to shop until the weekend which is why I'm using up freezer stuff and why I didn't just go buy carrots.)
I put the sliced up pork into a large Ziploc bag with all of the seasoning ingredients (the oil, paprika, cinnamon, salt, pepper, cumin, honey, lemon juice.) Note: I did NOT tweak the ingredients! Just the method. I'm a big fan of "throw it in a Ziploc and smush it around" method.
I did let the pork slices sit in the spice mix bag in the fridge for about a half hour before cooking.
I sauteed the pork cutlets in peanut oil because it just seemed to fit.
My daughter proclaimed these "the best pork chops ever" and coming from a 4 year old who adores pork chops, that's very high praise. The 2 year old loved it as well.
Mr. Fro also thought it was delicious and had several cutlets.
I adored this. I actually snuck a leftover pork cutlet out of the fridge this morning and ate it cold, like a cookie. VERY delicious.
I actually think that when I do make this again (and I will) and I make the carrot salad along with it, that if I sliced the leftover pork cutlets into strips and added it to a lettuce cup with some of the carrot salad, that it would make an excellent lettuce wrap. MMMM. Mouth watering.
