This dish comes together in just one pan, making for quick cleanup and tons of flavor as the elements build on each other. Each compo­nent contains just 5 ingredients or fewer (oil, salt, and black pepper are freebies). Anchovies add depth to the peppers, but you can omit them if you like.

Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes. Turn pork over; cook 1 minute. Cover pan with foil; bake at 425° for 5 minutes. Remove and discard foil. Bake pork an additional 5 minutes or until a thermom­eter registers 145°. Place pork on a cutting board; let stand 10 minutes. Cut across the grain into slices.

  • Return pan to medium-high heat. Combine remaining 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, stock, cornstarch, and vinegar in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add stock mixture to pan; bring to a boil. Cook 2 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened. Remove sauce from pan; keep warm.

  • Arrange pork and bell pepper mixture on a platter; sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon thyme and parsley. Drizzle with sauce.
