Pork Loin (Hungry Man Single Serving) Tagine Style

Single Serving (Hungry Man Size) of Pork Loin and vegetables stewed up in a Tagine for a flavorful one dish dinner. Ready from start to finish in 90 minutes (fire up the grill; prepare ingredients and 60 minute cook).

4 medium carrots, peeled and sliced in half lengthwise
1 10 oz. Pork Loin butter flied
Lysanders Pork Rub (to taste)
2 Medium potatoes, peeled and sliced
1 large green bell pepper, cut in chunks
6 green onions, sliced in ½ inch pieces
2 small tomatoes sliced thin
Large handful of Baby Spinach
4 cloves garlic, sliced thin
Garlic Pepper and Garlic Salt (to taste)
8 tbsp EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
1 cup of Chicken Broth

Preparation and Cooking
1. Rub Pork Loin and set aside.
2. Pour 5 tbsp of EVOO on the bottom of the tagine and begin layering ingredients evenly, starting with carrots then going in order they are written in the ingredients list above. The carrots must be on the bottom and the chicken pieces should be on top of the carrots, not touching the bottom of the tagine.
3. Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over the top the vegetables and then drizzle the remaining olive oil all over.
4. Close your tagine and cook until your vegetables are tender; on indirect heat (use a plate setter and stabilized Egg at 350 degrees). Check the tagine about 30 minutes in to assure that you still have liquid so the vegetables won’t burn. Remove after 60 minutes and let the tagine rest for 10 minutes and then serve.
