What to call this dish?

It started with about two pounds of pork chops... I deboned them and cut the pork meat into strips.

Meanwhile in a big frying pan I heated some olive oil... a generous portion, and added salt and pepper to the oil. Once it was hot I put the pork strips in the pan and browned it in the hot oil on high for a few minutes.

Once the meat wasn't raw on the outside, I added a few shakes of paprika and a few generous shakes of La Cena brand Adobo seasoning plus a few good shakes of powdered garlic and a couple of dashes of Lawry's seasoned salt. I then turn the heat to low, covered it and cooked it for about 15 minutes.

Once all that was reduced, I added a few shakes from a bottle of lemon juice, turned the heat really low and covered it and let it cook for about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile I cut some leftover baked potatoes into cubes and threw them in. Mixed everything in, stirred it and covered it all up.

Then I got a box of cleaned, sliced mushrooms and threw them in. Mixed everything in, stirred it and covered it all up. Cut up a huge Walla Walla sweet onion and threw that wonder of Nature in there as well.

I tasted it and it was really good so far.

Things were getting a little dry, so I added more lemon juice, and stirred everything up.

Cut up a lot of cilantro and added it to the mixture.

Heat down to minimum... it's ready to eat now essentially, but I want some starches and thus I cook some white rice and cook up some Cuban black beans (that recipe will be up soon... my shortcut is super fast and easy).

The pork was amazing! I am sure this is a new discovery, at least for me. And so what should I call this new pork recipe?

Let me know in the comments.
