4 servings SERVINGS


  • 2 tablespoons lard
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin,
  • sliced into medallions
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1⁄2 pound broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or
  • coconut aminos
  • 3⁄4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch or
  • arrowroot powder


    • In a large skillet, melt lard over medium-high heat. Add pork medallions and onion, and cook until pork is tender. Add mushrooms and broccoli, and stir-fry for about 5 minutes.
    • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine soy sauce, water, and cornstarch. When the pork and vegetables are done, pour the soy sauce mixture over skillet contents, and stir to completely coat. Simmer until sauce has thickened and is clinging to meat and vegetables.
    Note: Although tenderloin is the most desirable for this recipe, there’s not much tenderloin on a pig, so I also do variations of this with beef sirloin or ribeye that’s been cut into bite-sized pieces. Lard really improves the flavor of beef.
