    285 calories per serving

    2 T oil
    1 lb. red potatoes cut into small cubes
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1/2 c water
    3 scallions, thinly sliced
    1 lb. pork tenderloin
    1 lemon, sliced thin
    1/4 c cilantro leaves
    Salt and pepper to taste
    ½ t garlic powder

    Heat 1 T oil in skillet over medium high heat. Add potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Cook 8-10 minutes or until brown. Add 1/2 c water, cover and cook until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Add scallions and cook 2 minutes longer. Transfer to a bowl and keep warm. Cut tenderloin into 12 slices and press down to flatten into even pieces and dry on a paper towel (wet meat will not brown up nicely), sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
