Yield

Makes 6 servings

Here's a delicious (and healthy) change of pace from the usual ground beef tacos.

Ingredients

  • 6 (1-inch-thick) boneless pork chops
  • Cilantro Slaw
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 12 (6-inch) fajita-size flour tortillas
  • Lime wedges

How to Make It

  1. Let pork stand at room temperature 30 to 40 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare Cilantro Slaw. Light 1 side of grill, heating to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat; leave other side unlit. Brush pork with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  2. Grill pork over lit side of grill, covered with grill lid, 4 minutes on each side; transfer pork to unlit side, and grill, covered with grill lid, 10 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 145°. Let stand 5 minutes. Thinly slice pork.

  3. Place pork in warm tortillas; top with Cilantro Slaw. Serve with lime wedges.
