Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Number of Servings:
4 Cups of Fruits and Vegetables Per Person: 3


  • 8 oz pork tenderloin
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic, clove, minced
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 tsp dill, dried
  • 1 green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup spinach, shredded

  • 1/2 tsp oregano, dried
  • 1 cup sour cream, nonfat

  4. Add the pork and toss well to coat all the pieces. Let stand about 10 minutes.
  5. Coat a large no-stick frying pan with no-stick spray and place over medium heat for 3 minutes.
