Ever had one of those nights when you had no idea what you wanted for dinner? Well, after a long day at work, tonight was one of those nights. So we wandered through the grocery store looking for what looked fresh and sounded appealing. We arrived back in our kitchen with bing cherries, roma tomatoes, an English cucumber, pork, and appetites waiting to be sated.
What you’ll need:
2 pounds Pork Loin or thick cut Pork Chops
1 cup pitted Cherries
3 Roma Tomatoes
1 large Cucumber
1/2 cup Soy Sauce
1/2 cup dry Sherry
1/4 cup Teriyaki Sauce
Slice the pork into thing strips. Into a large bowl mix the soy sauce and sherry then add the pork making sure to cover it well with the marinade, and let sit for half an hour to an hour. While you’re waiting for the pork to bathe in the marinade, seed your tomatoes and cucumber and cut both into bite sized pieces.
Heat a large skillet and some oil (I used olive oil) over medium high heat. Drain your meat and then place it in the hot skillet. Stir until cooked through. Add the cherries, reduce the heat to medium, cover and let cook 5 to 10 minutes or until the cherries get soft. If the pan is dry, add some of your marinade to the pan, you want a little bit of juice so the cherries will steam.
Once the cherries are soft, add the cucumber and tomato. Stir until the tomato and cucumber are hot. Don’t over cook. Add 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce and stir to coat everything evenly.
Serve over rice or noodles and top with a little fresh chopped mint. Enjoy!
