Pork and spinach stir fry

This is absolutely one of my new favorite meals.  It is quick, healthy, and delicious, and I'm not ever a big pork fan.  Actually, you could probably do it with chicken, too...  Anyway, as I was driving home from my first Zumba class (starving, of course) I was trying to figure out what I could make that was fast and wouldn't undo all of my hard work.  Pork and spinach was the winner.  

There is very little prep work, but I suggest having everything ready, including the rice when you start cooking because this one goes fast!  

For 2 servings you will need:

2-4 Tbsp peanut (or other neutral oil) 
2 boneless pork chops- sliced small and thin
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 Lb spinach 
2 Tbsp soy sauce
Juice of 1 lime
Chopped scallion for garnish
Brown rice (I like Trader Joes frozen bags- they are so good and quick)
Salt and pepper

Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium to medium/high heat, season, then add the pork to the pan.  Cook until the pink is gone and you have some nice color on the outside, about 3 minutes.

Once it's cooked through, remove it and set the pork aside.  Add the rest of the oil, turn down the heat to medium, and toss in the garlic. Then add the spinach.  It will cook down quickly, so just keep tossing it and adding it until it is all cooked down.
Then put the pork back in, and add the soy sauce and lime juice to the pan, stir it all together. 

Plate the pork and spinach on a bed of rice, and top with some chopped scallion.  Sorry the finished product picture isn't the best, but I was too hungry to wait to take another one.  You are just going to have to try and see how it looks for yourself!
