This is the recipe that I made for our Mexican themed family meal. Pork is my favorite taco meat. It is probably the least common in the US, but after growing up on Tacos al Pastor in Mexico, hamburger just doesn’t cut it! I looked for a recipe and couldn’t find one that wasn’t pulled pork so I improvised. My family LOVED it. Even my little two-year-old kept asking for, “More meat, Mama, more meat.”
2 lbs. boneless pork loin chops
1 teaspoon each:
Oil (I used corn oil this time.)
The juice of three key limes.
Chop the meat into bite size pieces. Put it in a gallon size ziplock bag. Mix the dry ingredients in a small bowl and then coat the meat. Marinate for at least a half hour. Heat a small amount of oil in a large non-stick skillet. Fry the meat until it is white and beginning to brown. Turn the heat down, cover, and simmer until done. Remove the lid and continue to fry the meat until all the juice is evaporated and the meat is slightly browned. Serve with warm tortillas (preferably corn). Top with guacamole, pico de gallo, or chopped cilantro and onions. Oh and don’t forget to squeeze fresh lime over the whole thing–yum!
