Ingredients

  • 2 tbs olive oil divided
  • 1 lb pork tenderloin sliced into strips
  • 1 large onion thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 package asiago or parmesan flavored rice side dish see NOTES
  • 2 cups packed arugula chopped

Instructions

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Season pork with salt and pepper, if you’d like. Add pork and cook about 3 minutes or until done. Remove from pan and set aside. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in same pan over medium heat and cook your onion, covered, stirring frequently about 6 minutes or until browned. If onions start to stick, stir in 1 tablespoon of water. Remove from pan and set aside with pork.
  • Pour water, milk and rice side packet into the same pan and bring to a boil, then turn down the heat to medium and continue cooking 8 minutes. Toss in the arugula and cook 2 minutes more.
  • Add the pork and onions and serve,

Notes

  • I used Knorr Selects Asiago and Cracked Black Pepper rice side. If you cannot find this in your store, their 4-cheese risotto select is a good substitute or any variety with Italian-style cheeses.You could also substitute their Alfredo noodle variety, which is available everywhere.
  • NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION shown below is ONLY for the pork tenderloin.
