Ingredients

    1 lb Lean Pork Loin Chop, boneless, visible fat trimmed, cubed
    3 cups Asparagus, chopped in 1" pieces
    2 cups Instant Brown Rice (not yet prepared)
    1/4 cup Fresh Dill, chopped
    1/2 cup Fresh Parsley, chopped
    1/2 tsp Lemon zest
    1/2 cup Lemon juice

    Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Cook the brown rice according to package instructions - usually about 10 minutes.

While waiting for the water to boil for the rice, begin preparing the pork and asparagus mixture as follows:

In a large non-stick wok or skillet over medium-high heat, brown the pork pieces until nearly cooked through (5-7 minutes, depending on your pan and the size of the cubes).

Add the asparagus to the pork and continue to cook until the pork is finished cooking and the asparagus is tender, but still somewhat crisp and bright green (about 2-3 minutes).

In a large bowl, combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, dill and parsley. Mix in the rice, pork and asparagus.

Salt and Pepper to Taste

Makes 4 servings, approx 2 cups each.
