“I got the original recipe from Johanna Jones-she owns and operates a pig farm in South Carolina. This is a “wow, clean out the garden, all in one yummy” summer recipe. I’ve changed the peppers-she used green and I’ve added more green onions-Johanna used three. Other than that “this is the Bomb!””
2teaspoons fresh thyme or 2teaspoonsdried thyme
1teaspoon cracked black pepper or 1 1/2 teaspoonsfresh ground pepper
1large pork tenderloin or 2smallpork tenderloin
1red bell pepper, sliced long
1orange bell pepper, sliced long
1yellow squash, cut the end’s off-stand on end and cut off bite sized chunks-turning as you go
1zucchini, cut the end’s off-stand on end and cut off bite sized chunks-turning as you go
5green onions, cut into 1 inch lengths
2 -3clovesgarlic, sliced thin
1canblack beans, rinsed and drained
1canstewed tomatoes( unseasoned)
Combine the thyme, pepper and salt.
Roll the pork, pressing the mixture into it.
Cook the tenderloin in oil, in a large-cast iron if you have it-skillet on medium heat until done-about 30 min.
Remove from the skillet, place on a cutting board and cover with foil to keep warm.
In the same skillet, same heat cook the remaining ingredients except beans and tomatoes to preference-we like the veg a bit underdone.
Add the beans and tomatoes and remaining thyme and heat through, about 4-5 min.
Spoon into a large serving plate-slice the pork thin and place on top.
A few thyme sprigs is a nice touch.
“Just finished eating this.It was very good.Not too much I would change, except maybe to strain the tomatos.The kids and honey enjoyed it thoroughly.Will make again.”
“This was truly tasty and lovely to look at !I had to substitute a tad — found I had no black beans, so added some canned artichoke bottoms.Was delighted to see a new prep for zucchini and bell peppers.This will surely be made again.Thanks for posting, DiB.”
“Just made this delish dish.I liked the pork on the bed of peppers erc. However I wasn’t crazy about the black beans so I will leave them out next time.Will keep this on hand.Thank you for sharing.”
