2 pork tenderloins, about 3/4 pound each
3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
1 large shallot, peeled and minced
2 medium cloves garlic, peeled and minced
2 medium red bell peppers, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup dry white wine
6 thin lemon slices
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
Black pepper to taste

Trim fat from pork and cut into 1 inch cubes. Heat 2 teaspoons of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, shallot, and bell peppers. Saute about 10 minutes or until peppers are very soft. Remove peppers from pan and set aside.

Add remaining oil to pan and heat. Add pork to the pan and cook until browned. Add in cumin seeds, ground cumin, paprika and salt and stir a minute or so. Put peppers back in with the meat, then add the broth, wine and lemon slices. Cover and simmer about 20 to 25 minutes until pork is cooked through and tender, stirring occasionally.

Remove the lemon slices and add lemon juice, cilantro and pepper to taste. Serve with brown rice or egg noodles. Makes 4 servings.
