Easy Pork and Apple Tacos


As you could probably tell, I was pretty excited about my recent bacon, apple and pork creation/monstrosity. As much as I’d like to eat pork wrapped in pork and then grilled every day, unfortunately I don’t always have the time to make such an over-the-top meal. I had another of these Smithfield marinated pork loins on hand this month and was looking for a quicker way to cook it up. Smitten with the pork and apples combo, I made a quick pork and apple taco meal, perfect for that busy back-to-school, back-to-work, dear-god-why-am-I-not-on-vaction-anymore time of year.

Easy Pork and Apple Tacos

One Smithfield marinated peppercorn and garlic pork loin

One red apple

1/2 onion

queso fresco

corn tortillas

Simple directions: make this in to tacos!

Full directions:

Cut the pork loin up into small, 1/4-inch strips.

Throw the pork pieces in to a large saucepan on medium heat.

Meanwhile, chop up the half onion into small strips and throw those in with the pork.

Peel and chop your apple up in to small cubes. Toss these on the pork right as it’s just about done (after 10 minutes). I do this just to get the apples nice and hot — don’t want them all mushy!

Lather everything on to a warm tortilla; top with queso fresco and Sriracha.
