500 grams pork tenderloin
1 large onion
50 grams butter
1 teaspoon dried dill
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
½ teaspoon onion powder
1 medium tomato (200 grams)
500 ml vegetable broth
500 ml hot water
150 grams uncooked pasta

Cut off any visible fat from the pork, then cut the meat into bite sized pieces and set it aside. Cut the onion into thin slices and peel and dice the tomato. Set everything aside and melt the butter over medium heat in a large pot. Add the sliced onion to the pot and cook it for at least 5 minutes, until it becomes translucent. Add the pork to the pot and cook it for 15 minutes, stirring often, until the meat is evenly browned on all sides.
Stir in the spices and mix everything very well and add in the tomato, stir and cook for 5 more minutes. Pour in the vegetable broth, partially cover the pot with the lid and let it simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes. When the meat is cooked, pour in the hot water, add the pasta and let it cook, uncovered, for about 10 minutes, or until desired thickness of the sauce. Taste and adjust the seasoning and serve warm, with sour cream and a salad of your choice (yields 4 servings).
