Pork Tenderloin with Sauteed Onions and Marinara Sauce

When Chris walked into the house tonight he said it smelled delicious. And it did. Yes this one was a winner. And it was so simple.

I had a 12 oz. piece of pork tenderloin. I sliced the tenderloin into 1/4 inch slices and dredged the slices in flour. Meanwhile I was sauteing sliced onion in olive oil and a bit of butter. I added the pork to the pan, browning it on both sides. I topped the pork with the cooked onions, some marinara sauce (made with tomatoes from Dad's Garden) and a bit of mozzarella. I covered the pan and let it sit for a minute.
It's funny how such a little piece of meat can make such a big impression.

The side dish was Orzo Salad. I was looking at some of my favorite blogs and saw an orzo salad posted on One Perfect Bite. I realized that I had not made this all summer. For the dressing I used olive oil and lemon juice with salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, thyme and parsley. The orzo was whole wheat and I added diced scallions, carrot, red pepper and zucchini.
