  2. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Add pork slices; cook 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until pork is tender. Remove pork from skillet; set aside, and keep warm.

  3. Add pepper stir-fry to skillet, and cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes. Add vinegar and honey; cook 2 minutes. Return pork slices to skillet, and cook 2 minutes or just until thoroughly heated.

Cook's Notes

Two pork tenderloins are packaged together usually. Freeze one tenderloin to use later, if desired.
