Ingredients

+ Add To Shopping List
1 pound boneless pork chops, thinly-cut (1/2-inch thick), cut into strips
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper, (smoked or plain paprika can be used as an alternative)
8 small corn tortillas, warmed
1 cup romaine lettuce, shredded
1 cup pico de gallo*
To taste light sour cream, or crema

Preparation

Prep: 20 Minutes
Cook: 5 Minutes

In a medium sized bowl combine the honey, olive oil, lemon juice, soy sauce and ground chipotle pepper and whisk to combine. Add the sliced pork to the marinade and let it sit for 15 minutes.

  1. Heat a skillet over high heat. Add the slices of pork to the skillet and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, flipping with tongs in the middle of the cooking process. Once cooked, remove the pork to a plate and reserve.
  2. Arrange 8 corn tortillas on a platter. Sprinkle each with equal amounts of shredded lettuce and pico de gallo. Arrange a few pieces of pork on top of each taco, and top with sour cream or crema if desired.

 
* You can find prepared pico de gallo, typically a combination of onions, chiles, tomatoes, lime juice and cilantro, in the refrigerated section of the produce department in most major supermarkets.

 

Serving Suggestion:
These tacos would be great alongside a rice pilaf dish. Chop up some fresh cilantro and stir it into the rice for an extra kick.
