Steps to make Mediterranean Pork and Orzo

1

Season pork

Generously rub 1½ pounds of pork tenderloin with 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper and cut into 1-inch cubes or chunks.

2

Cook pork

In a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil and add seasoned pork chunks. Cook for about 8-10 minutes until cooked in the center and no longer pink.

Add 6 ounces of baby spinach and stir. Cook for another 45-60 seconds until spinach is wilted and the orzo should be cooked. Drain from the cooking liquid.

Wishing it was kinda spicy but next time I'll just add some chili flakes and a dab of hot sauce.

Ila Yanuzzi

Not awful but shrimp orzo is much tastier than this one, but since my husband liked it i'll be cooking it again.

Abbie Stinchfield

I added some sundried tomatos to this and a lottt of extra cheese haha.

Nellie Beckstrand

Not sure how I feel about the texture of the noodles though it was really good nonetheless.

Brynleigh Akutagawa

Never made anything like this before but I'm going to test my luck today since it looks so freaking good.

Izabelle Callanan

Would recommend anything and all recipes from Jeff,he has the best tasting and most affordable recipes on here in my opinion.

Linnea Lavoy

Great but needed a bit of a kick so decided to add a tad of tobasco hot sauce in it.

Kaycee Visco

Brought some left overs with me to work and the whole place was surrounding me once I warmed it up in the microwave everyone wanted to know what it was,LOL!

Nahla Mastropolo

Becareful cooking the noodles or they'll come out to be just plain mush,I wasn't so lucky the first time but made sure to be more careful the second time around so they'd turn out perfect.

Raylynn Hoffstadt

I recommend not adding any salt till you finish cooking it or it will be too salty for sure.

Karis Reager

SOOOO YUMMY, put more veggies in this though cause I wanted it to have a more refreshing taste.

Paulina Trafton

Brilliant meal for two or the whole family, it's a crowd pleaser for sure :)

Farah Fryc

Tasty and simple just how I like my meals thanks again for sharing it with us Jeff!

Neveah Newhauser

Had it with some squeezed lemon juice on the top and it was freaking delicious.

Ailani Zenker

Ditched the baby spinach all the way since I knew for sure my son wouldn't eat it but decided to add some basil leaves instead.

Austyn Wyeth

My kids devoured this whole thing so quickly that's how tasty it was !!

Araceli Abercrombie

Going to make this with some chicken instead of pork cause the pork doesn't go too well with the rest of the ingridents.

Karter Fitzherbert

Went with beef the second time I made this and I liked it a lot better though the pork is good too.

Audra Messier

This meal goes great with red wine and a side of garlic bread, recommending it to any out there second guessing for sure.

Araya Kacprowicz

Was really good but added some teriyaki sauce to the pork just to experiment a bit and have to say it's way more flavorful and juicy now.

Athina

I love it! So delicious!
