12 oz. Pork tenderloin trimmed of all fat and cut into 1 inch pieces
1/8 tsp Black pepper
1 Tbsp Canola oil
1 15oz. Can tomato sauce (you can substitute homemade obviously)

Step 1
Sprinkle the meat with pepper. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the tenderloin pieces in oil, stirring frequently, about 5-7 minutes, until browned on all sides.
Step 2
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the tomato sauce, sauerkraut, caraway seed and Splenda. Add to the pan and stir to coat the pork. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer about 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally until meat is cooked through.
Step 3
Serve over rice. Eat. Yummy Face!

So all in all I thought this would be gross. It is actually a little like American sweet and sour pork without the battering and deep frying. Tasty stuff
