Pat the pork dry with paper towels; place in a bowl. Season on all sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Rub the seasonings onto the pork. In a medium pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork. Cook, turning occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes, or until browned on all sides.
