Author: Delicious Meets Healthy
  • 1/2 lb Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Loin Filet, cut in strips
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper (I used 1/2 red and green peppers)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 2 cups vegetable stock (or water)
  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1/2 cup garbanzo beans
  • 10 olives
  • 1 lemon
  • fresh parsley, chopped
  • salt and black pepper
  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
