Sautéing pork on your stovetop is a quick and easy way to have dinner ready in minutes.

A shallow, flat-bottomed pan or skillet and a pair of tongs are a must. Choose a pan that is about 2 to 3 quarts and designed with a wide, flat 8- or 9-inch bottom. This provides room in the pan to avoid overcrowding the ingredients and promotes even cooking.
