Trim fat from pork; cut pork into 1/2-inch strips, and place in a shallow dish. Combine lemon juice and next 4 ingredients, stirring well. Drizzle 3 tablespoons lemon juice mixture over pork. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 2 hours. Set remaining lemon juice mixture aside.

Add tahini and sugar to remaining lemon juice mixture; stir well, and set aside. Combine romaine lettuce, cabbage, and jicama in a bowl; toss, and set aside.
