Pork Tenderloin Tacos With Fresh Corn Salad

Pork Tenderloin Tacos With Fresh Corn Salad

Serves 4

Here is what you need:

1 pork tenderloin, about a pound

1 TBS orange juice

2 TBS lime juice

1 TBS olive oil plus more for cooking

1 TBS honey

2 TBS taco seasoning or you can make your own

8 flour or corn tortillas

chopped fresh cilantro for serving

I served my tacos topped with fresh corn salad. The recipe is at the end.

You can garnish them with whatever you like.

Here is what you need to do:

In a large glass bowl combine the orange juice, lime juice, oil, honey and seasoning.

Whisk to combine

With a sharp knife remove any silver skin that may be on the pork. Slice the pork into bite size pieces and add to the bowl with the marinade. Marinate for only 15 to 30 minutes. Don’t marinate any longer than that.

Remove the pork from marinade and blot dry with paper towels. If you want season with a little salt and pepper.

Heat some olive oil over medium high heat in a cast iron skillet. Add the pork to the pan and cook for just about 4 to 5 minutes. Don’t overcook.

Warm your tortillas in a pan on the stove, one by one. Slip them on a baking sheet and slide into a warm oven to keep them warm.

 Put the pork on a tortilla and top with what you like. Since my corn salad contains mayonnaise, cilantro, jalapenos, bell pepper and more that was all I topped mine with.

Fresh Corn Salsa:

3 to 4  ears of corn, depending on size

4 mini bell peppers, seeded and chopped

1 jalapeno , seeded and chopped

1/3 cup chopped red onion

1 to 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 TBS lime juice

¼ cup mayonnaise

2 TBS honey

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

salt and pepper

Cut the corn off the cob. Char the corn just a little in a dry cast iron skillet. Put the corn in a large glass bowl along with the rest of the ingredients. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.

Tip: You can soak the red onion and garlic in the lime juice before putting the rest of the salad together. Flavors the juice and takes some of the bite out of the onion.
