Directions

  1. Season pork with 1/2 tsp lemon pepper and 1/2 tsp salt. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Brown pork on all sides for 4 minutes or until golden. Remove and set aside.
  2. In the same skillet, reduce heat to medium and saute the onion and apple 5 minutes, or until tender.
  3. Add quinoa, stirring 1 minute to toast.
  4. Add broth, carrots, cranberries, and remaining salt and pepper. Mix well.
  5. Place pork over top and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium low, and simmer 15 minutes until pork is ready, quinoa is tender, and liquid is almost absorbed.
  6. Remove pork to rest, and let quinoa sit for 2 minutes.
  7. Stir walnuts and feta cheese into quinoa mixture. Thinly slice pork and serve.
