Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 400° F. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat.

  • Season the pork with ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove from skillet.

  • Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the skillet, along with the tomatoes, garlic, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook, tossing, for 2 minutes.

  • Add the wine and simmer until the tomatoes begin to soften, 2 to 3 minutes more. Mix in the parsley.

  • Nestle the pork in the tomatoes. Transfer to oven and roast until the pork is cooked through, 6 to 7 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Whisk in the polenta and cook, whisking, until thickened, 3 to 4 minutes. Whisk in the cheese, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ⅛ teaspoon pepper. Serve with the pork and tomatoes.
