Pork Tacos - our version

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 11oz. of Pork Chop
  • 1 cup of shredded lettuce
  • 1 can Ro*Tel tomatoes (Original)
  • 1/2 cup of diced onion
  • Tortillas
  • Juice from 1 1/2 limes (micro-wave for 10 seconds)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Chipolte Chili Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Cayene Pepper
  • 1 Tbls Vegetable Oil

 

Directions:

 

  • Tenderize Pork Chops in a plastic big hitting it wth a meat tenderizer until it's about a 1/2 inch thick
  • Cut the pork into 1/2 inch cubes
  • Put the cubes of meat in a bowl and add the lime juice, chipotle/cayenne, chili powder and salt along with a good squirt of vegetable oil (a tablespoon or 2).  Stir to coat and then add the cornstarch and stir it up again.  Let it sit for a little while.
  • Heat saute pan over medium to high heat.  Add a couple of tablespoons of oil and let the pan get hot then add the meat.  Stir it so the individual cubes seperate.  You want a bit of heat so that the cornstarch helps the meat get nice and crispy. This will take 5-7 minutes to cook.  Once done place on paper towles.
  • Heat the totillas in the microwave or in a hot pan to your liking.
  • Buld tacos to your liking, I add yellow rice, Ro*Tel tomatoes, cheese and shredded lettuce.
