fiesta pork over black beans & rice – townie

i made this dish originally back in june and had said next time i would make some changes — so this time i did!

sorry no picture as it was a repeat for me 🙂  this time i served it over vigos black beans and rice

here is the recipe with the modifications i made!


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 boneless pork chops sliced into strips
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 cups frozen bell pepper strips, thawed and patted dry (used a bag of archer farms roasted peppers)
  • 1 bunch scallions, green portions thinly sliced, white portions finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed  (i didnt thaw – just threw them in)
  • 1 can of black beans, rinsed


  1. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over high heat, swirling to coat the pan. Add the pork to the skillet in an even layer and season with the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder,  1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring, until just brown all over, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the pork and any juices to a plate. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, the bell peppers, corn, black beans and finely chopped scallions to the skillet and cook, stirring, until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes.
  2.  Return the pork and any juices to the skillet and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 1 minute. Stir in the sliced scallions.
