- 4 pork cutlets (or more depending on how many you're feeding)
- 1 can black eyed peas ,rinsed and drained
- 1 jalapeno ,seeded and diced
- 1 onion ,chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic minced
- 1/2 cup Canadian bacon ,chopped
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 14 ounce can no salt whole tomatoes
- 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
In a large skillet or sauce pan, saute your Canadian bacon, onion and garlic with a dab of oil. Stir in your garlic after a couple of minutes and saute, be careful not to burn the garlic. Stir in your spices and chop your tomatoes, I crushed mine with my hand. Stir well. Allow this to simmer while you cook the pork cutlets. Lastly before serving stir in the jalapeno and cilantro. Serve on top of your pork cutlet.
For the pork I just seasoned it with a sprinkle of garlic powder and fresh cracked black pepper, seared it in a hot pan on each side and cooked it for 3 minutes per side. I do this while the salsa is simmering, .you can prepare the salsa earlier and allow it to cool if you like, we ate it warm.
