4 thin pork loin chop
juice of 1 lemon
1 tbs. olive oil
2 crushed garlic cloves
1 tsp. chopped thyme
salt and Tabasco pepper to taste
½ chopped onion
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 chopped tomato
2 tbs. chopped parsley

1 - In a bowl, season the meat with salt, garlic, olive oil, thyme, ½ lemon juice and Tabasco pepper. Let it rest in refrigerator for about 1 hour.
2 - After that, heat olive oil in saute pan and put the pork. Let browned for about two minutes, turn and let it cook for more 2 minutes.
3 - Add onion and saute.
4 - Put mushrooms and tomatoes.
5 - Cover the pan and cook for about 3 minutes.
6 - Finish with the parsley and the other half of the lemon juice.

  • I prefer pork well done but not dry. Therefore, I find it easier to cook well when the meat has a thin cut. But the cooking time and the thickness of the meat will depend on your taste (just remember that eating raw pork is not recommended).
  • To serve, green salad and steamed vegetables.
  • Another side dish option: rice and beans.
