salt and pepper
1/4 tsp

Combine marinade ingredients. Place pork cubes (Earls pork loin roast, cut into 1″ cubes) in a zip-lock bag. Pour marinade over cubes; close bag and massage to coat cubes well. Marinate 4-24 hours in the refrigerator. Remove pork from marinade and drain well; discard marinade.

Heat 1 tablespoon canola oil in non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Brown pork in batches, adding remaining 1 tablespoon of oil as necessary.

Remove lid; bake an additional 30-35 minutes, turning occasionally.
