Pork with Wild Rice and Herbs
1 lb. pork tenderloin lean, cut into bite sized pieces
1 (8-oz) package sliced white mushrooms OR brown mushrooms
1-1/2 cups chicken broth reduced-sodium
1 cup uncooked white and wild rice blend*
1 tbsp Italian herbs herbes de Provence OR other dried herb blend
1-1/2 cups frozen mixed vegetables thawed
Salt and black pepper
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley leaves
In a large skillet or sauté pan with a tight-fitting lid over high heat, combine pork, mushrooms, broth, rice, and herbs. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook 15 minutes.
Stir in mixed vegetables and continue to cook until liquid has absorbed, rice is tender, and pork is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
*Note: To make sure they’ll be done at the same time, use an already combined mixture of white and wild rice. Look for a blend that has a cooking time of about 20 minutes.
