Ingredients

  • 12 ounces boneless pork chops (thinly-cut, 1/4-inch thick, cut into 1-inch cubes)
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 cloves garlic (chopped)
  • 1 head romaine lettuce (cut into 1/2-inch strips)
  • 1/2 cup queso fresco (OR feta cheese)
  • 1/4 cup red onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1 lime (zested and juiced)

Directions

  1. 1Combine the quinoa and water in a pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to medium heat and let the quinoa cook until all the water is evaporated.
  2. 2In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add pork and sprinkle with paprika, salt and pepper. Sauté, stirring frequently, until browned and cooked to 145 degrees F., about 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic 1 minute before it’s done. Remove the skillet from the heat and set aside.
  3. 3On a large platter, arrange the lettuce.
