Remove the pork from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard used marinade.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a wok over high heat. Stir-fry pork in the hot oil until browned, about 10 minutes. Set pork aside.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to wok; stir in onions until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in red bell pepper for 3 more minutes. Return pork to wok. Add lime juice and 1/2 cup cilantro. Cook and stir until cilantro has wilted, about 1 minute.
