This super quick recipe has dinner on the table in twenty minutes. The recipe is easily adjusted for a single serving or doubled for six to eight people. Best of all if you keep a well-stocked pantry you will have most of the ingredient. Serve it with oven roasted yellow potatoes quartered and liberally sprinkled with olive oil, salt and pepper.
The anchovies melt into the pepper mixture adding a savory, salty quality. If you don’t like anchovies use three tablespoons minced olives.

Thanks on the tip for roasting potatoes . I never learned how to use my convection oven. I’ll try it when I’m back home. Adding anchovies to the pork sounds divine. I can taste it.
Chef Thomas Keller of French Laundry and Ad Hoc promotes the use of convection roasting and baking. I tested roasting potatoes with and without convection and convection won hands down. The potatoes roasted beautifully golden brown and crisp on the outside, tender and mealy on the inside. Bon Appetit my friend. Virginia
