  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat (I used 12" skillet). Add pork loin filet strips to the skillet, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until cooked through. Transfer cooked strips to a plate.
  • Add chopped carrots, bell pepper, onion, and garlic to the skillet, and if necessary add more olive oil. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Saute for about 5 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
  • Add rice to the skillet and stir well. Season the rice-vegetable mixture with salt, black pepper, and oregano. Add lemon zest to the vegetable stock and pour over the rice mixture. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for about 12-14 minutes until rice is cooked. 
  • Add the juice of 1 lemon and the cooked pork slices to the rice-vegetable mixture and stir well. Add garbanzo beans, olives and garnish with chopped fresh parsley.

    I made this tonight and the rice took longer than expected and I had to add more water but otherwise it was a nice low calorie dinner.

    Made this for dinner tonight. It was fantastic! Great flavor. My entire family loved it and asked for it to be a regular!

      1. Beth, one serving is 1/4 of the whole meal. I don’t weigh my meals. You can eat less or more.

  3. Thanks, David! I hope you and your family enjoy it! One skillet meals are my favorite weeknight meals. 🙂

  4. Now this looks like my kind of weeknight meal! I love how colorful the skillet is…and it sounds absolutely delicious. I’ll have to add this to our menu for next week. Thanks so much for sharing! #client
