Another Quick, Cheap Gluten-free Dinner Idea (Low Carb)

This is one of the fastest and easiest meals I make.  It generally takes about 10-15 minutes, from the time I turn on the stove to sitting down to eat.   There's only one pan afterwards.  This recipe is low-carb, but very filling.  There are only four ingredients:

olive oil

1. Turn the stove to medium and heat a cast-iron pan.
2. When the pan is nice and hot, place your cut of pork in the pan.  Let it cook for 2 minutes for a one-inch-thick piece, 30 seconds for a thin piece.
3. Turn the pork over.  Let it cook for thirty seconds to one minute, then turn off the burner and cover the meat with a large lid.
4.  When the piece is just cooked through, salt it on both sides.
5.  Place the meat on a bed of lettuce dressed with olive oil and salt.

Or, for another version, prepare this dish with roasted vegetables in the oven as I described in Quick and Easy Gluten-free Soy-free Dairy-free Dinner Idea: Roasted Vegetables.

I had no idea that pork (other than the thin chops) would cook that quickly. Looks delicious!
