An amazingly yummy dinner that takes exactly 8 minutes to cook! Our Pan Seared Pork with Mushroom & Pea Marsala Sauce will become your favorite pork dish after just one bite!
When Cody and I plan our menu for the week, our first question is usually: “How long will that take to cook?”. It’s really important for us to not spend an hour in the kitchen everyday. We love making quick, mouth-watering meals in minutes. As much as we can. This recipe is the epitome of that. It takes 8 minutes.
While your pork sears up beautifully, your sauce simmers in another pan.
You should be proud of your dinner every night. Feel good about the food you put into your body! You are, after all, putting it in your body. And your body deserves the good stuff.
Fun fact: While cleaning up after cooking this yummy meal, I sliced my finger with a spoon. Yep. You read that right. A spoon. Given, it was a cheap metal spoon. But still. I guess I’m now the kind of person that gets sliced by spoons. Lucky me!
We served our pork with a quick little chopped salad, but it also goes great with our Easy Garlic Green Beans.
