- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 lb. pork tenderloin, cubed into 1-inch cubes
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 1 cup no-salt-added tomato sauce
- 1/2 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 2 dried bay leaves
- In a large, heavy saucepan, add the oil. Heat over medium-high heat, about 2 minutes.
- Add the pork cubes. Cook until browned, about 2 minutes on each side.
- Add the garlic and paprika and cook, stirring, 30 seconds.
- Add the wine and use it to deglaze the pan – scrape the bottom of the pan with a heat-resistant spatula to loosen any tasty bits stuck to the bottom.
- Stir in the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, lower heat to medium, and simmer, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, just until pork is cooked through. Remove the bay leaves and serve.
