Equipment

  • pressure cooker, skillet

Ingredients

  • 1 pork tenderloin sliced in ¼ inch pieces

Marinade Ingredients

  • cup olive oil or other neutral oil of choice
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chili sauce
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic

Cooked Einkorn

  • 1 cup einkorn grain
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Buddha Bowl Ingredients

  • 4 cups cooked einkorn or other grain of choice
  • 6 cups veggies of choice thinly slices. I used purple cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, edamame, and radish.

Asian-Style Dressing

  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 teaspoons chili sauce you can use less of this if you don't like spicy dressing
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

Instructions

  • Combine the water, einkorn, and salt in your pressure cooker. Seal and cook on high for 25 minutes. Quick release and move to saute if there is still water in the grains.
  • Combine marinade ingredients. Pour over the sliced tenderloin either in a bag, bowl or container. I do this while the einkorn is cooking.
  • Allow this to marinate for at least 30 minutes at room temp.
  • Heat your cast iron, or nonstick skillet on medium heat until good and hot. Add in 2 tablespoons olive oil or other oil of choice.
  • Add your pork tenderloin slices to the pan in a single layer. Unless you have a really big pan, you will have to do this in batches.
  • Cook for 2 minutes on each side, then place on a plate.
  • Once the pork and einkorn are cooked, you are ready to go!!
  • Mix your dressing ingredients until well combined.
  • Make your bowl how you want. Then drizzle generously with dressing
  • If you are using this for meal prep. Just cook and cut everything to get it ready. Right before serving, drizzle with the dressing.
  • Everything holds well for at least 5-7 days!
  • Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
