  • 2 teaspoon(s) coconut oil
  • 1 pound(s) pork tenderloin trimmed and cut into 1/4 - 1/2 inch strips
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) black pepper freshly ground
  • 1 medium onion(s) red, diced
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper(s) minced

  1. Wash and chop onion, jalapeno, cilantro and tomatoes.
  2. Season both sides of pork with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add coconut oil to pan.
  4. Sauté pork until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Remove pork from pan and place in a bowl.
