    1. In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Season pork with salt and pepper. In batches without crowding, add pork and brown on both sides, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and discard fat in skillet.
    2. Meanwhile make the sauce: Process the sauce ingredients in a blender until smooth; set aside.
    3. Pour the sauce into the skillet and add 2 tablespoons water. Bring to a boil, scraping up browned bits in bottom of pan. Return the pork to the skillet and cover.
