  • 1 lb. pork tenderloin cut into thin medallions
  • 5 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • A medium onion peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 head green cabbage rinsed, and then thinly sliced (shredded)
  • if using an Instant Pot you will need 1/4 water, but this is not for the frying pan method
  • Optional:
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste


  • Grab a large frying pan.
  • Place it on medium heat and put 2 Tablespoons of olive oil in the frying pan.
  • Add in the pork and salt and paper.
  • You'll cook the pork on one side, and then flip it to the other.

  • Each side will be about 4-5 minutes and you want each side to be golden in color. (8 - 10minutes)
  • Once this happens, remove from heat and set the pork aside.
  • (If using an Instant Pot, place the oil in, add the meat, press saute, and follow the same procedure as listed above for the pork preparation.)
  • Using the same pan, add the other 3 remaining tablespoons of Olive Oil into the pan (or into the Instant Pt liner whichever you are using)
  • Now, place the onion in and then the cabbage.
  • I suggest more salt and pepper atop this mixture
  • You will now cook this mixture and stir it on medium heat (or in Instant Pot on Saute) until the veggies become what I will term 'glossy' or a tad softer. (about 15-20 minutes).
  • Once the veggies are softer, it's time to add the pork back into the skillet (or the Instant Pot)
  • For the skillet, you will cook about 5-7 more minutes on medium heat.
  • Remove from pan and serve.
  • Enjoy.
