Marinate a pork tenderloin in fat free italian dressing. Bake covered in 350 oven for one hour, removing cover last ten minutes of bake time. Slice into 1/4 inch rounds.

Sautee onions and green peppers while tenderloin is cooking.

Fill pitas with tenderloin discs, peppers, onions and German mustard (coarse with the seeds). Serve with baked beans and salad.

Sounds great, I love pork tenderloin. I usually rub mine with Carribbean seasoning and throw on the grill. I slice it up and put on a salad, and make Cuban sandwiches for my hubby and daughter.
I can't wait to try your recipe.

I like to take 1 pound of pork, cut into 1" cubes, get the wok screaming hot, drizzle about 2 tablespoons canola oil and 1 tblsp hot chili paste, toss in the pork. quick cook it to seare outside and put in a bowl; take the screaming hot wok, add brocolli florets, asperigus, green beans, all cut into 1" pieces, frozen corn and mushrooms, and stir fry those really quick (don't add more oil, if necessary use a spritz of a cooking spray or 'i can't believe it's not butter spray') mix in with the pork pieces.
serve rolled in a steamed low fat flour tortilla, pita or over brown rice, makes 4-6 servings (6 in a pita or tortilla, 4 over rice). YUM!

I will have to try both, although without hot sauce because we can't take the heat, but I have to stay in the kitchen!

I have a wok pan and have been wanting to do some stir fry...Breezy, yours sounds wonderful! The other day I saw some cooking spray, like PAM, may have even been PAM brand, can't remember--anyway it was for HOT oil cooking. I'm going to get some next time and try it with your combination of ingredients! I'll let you know how it goes.

Caribbean spice mix....like for Jerk Chicken? What's in it, I wonder? Is it hot at all?

Yes it is like the jerk seasoning, and it is spicy, not the same hot as a chili pepper, but has a bite to it.

If you can't take heat, try terriaki or soy, but be sure to get the extra low sodium or sodium free.
I don't like prepared terriaki sauces since they are SO sweet but if you want a substitute put about 1/4 cup soy sauce in a small pan, add a little (about 1 tblsp) sesame oil and a couple tablespoons of honey, smash some garlic (I have an award made out of marble, about 1" thick and the size of a business card I use as my garlic smasher) smash 2 cloves of garlic, peel, resmash and drop in the soy sause. simmer on low until most of the water evaporates, you will have a really rich, garlicy sweet glaze similar to terriaki but without the high sugar content. Use that in stir fry instead of the hot chili and you will have a sweeter milder glaze, just use a little bit until you have the taste you like.
I use this in a lot of my stir fry's when I am not in the mood for hot, or if I'm bringing to work where not everyone appreciates food that bites back!

Breezy, that sounds wonderful! Thank you so much for taking the time to give me your recipe! I'm going to make that pronto! I get really tired of chicken, and my family loves...CRAVES even...oriental food. I'm going to have fun experimenting with that.

And the balsamic marinate is right up my alley!!! I have a neat little gadget that lets you put in myriad small items and grill them without loss. I'm going to fill it with marinated veggies and shrimp and have a feast!
