Pork Tacos with Mango Slaw

These tacos are not only ready in under 30 minutes but they’re also budget-friendly.  If your pork tenderloin comes with 2 1-pound pieces of meat, simply freeze the other tenderloin for a future dinner.  Recipe serves 4.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 (12-ounce) pork tenderloin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 1 cup chopped ripe mango (if you can’t find mango, use pineapple)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced radish
  • 1/3 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 ripe avocado, chopped
  • 8 corn tortillas

What you’ll do:

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Heat an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add one tablespoon of oil to the pan.
  • Sprinkle the pork with 1/4 teaspoon of both salt and pepper.
  • Add pork to the pan and cook 4 minutes.
  • Turn the pork over and put in the preheated oven.  Bake for 12 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  • Combine 1 tablespoon of oil, cabbage, mango, radish, green onions and ground red pepper in a bowl.
  • Combine the lime juice and avocado in a small bowl.
  • Add the avocado to the cabbage mixture.  Toss.
  • Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  • Top each tortilla with pork and slaw.
