Combine 2 teaspoons lime juice, 1 tablespoon oil, and pork in a zip-top plastic bag; seal. Marinate 10 minutes at room temperature. Remove pork from bag; discard marinade. Sprinkle both sides of pork with 1/2 teaspoon salt, cumin, pepper, and garlic. Place pork on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes. Slice pork into thin strips.
Lightly coat corn with cooking spray. Place corn on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 6 minutes or until lightly charred, turning occasionally. Let corn stand 5 minutes; cut kernels from cob. Combine kernels, 2 teaspoons juice, remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, bell pepper, and next 3 ingredients (through jalapeño) in a bowl; toss.
Place tortillas on a grill rack coated with cooking spray, and grill for 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned. Toss cabbage with remaining 2 teaspoons lime juice. Place 2 tortillas on each of 4 plates, and divide pork evenly among tortillas. Top each taco with about 1 tablespoon cabbage mixture and about 2 tablespoons salsa.
My boyfriend and I both loved this recipe! The pork was delicious and tender, and the salsa outstanding!!! It's delicious enough for a special occasion BBQ or the like, but quick and easy enough for an everyday meal. I made a few changes, none life-altering. I marinated the pork for 30 min instead of 10. I don't have a grill, so I simply used the stove top for everything. I omitted the cabbage, because I don't like cabbage. And I used only half of the jalapeno, though next time I will use the whole thing.
Wasn't crazy about the rice. I went healthy and used brown, and it was pretty blah. Next time black beans will be the side.
The salsa is sooo good. The sweet, spicy, and tangy flavors are great. It takes a bit to cut all the ingredients up, but it is worth it! And I always love the cabbage instead of lettuce. I used whole wheat tortillas instead of corn. This is a great summer recipe.
The gorgeous fruit salsa was a bit hit -- definitely worthy of a special occasion bbq. Diced the red pepper and orange nectarine about the size of the grilled corn kernels & didn't use the oil. Seasoned & grilled carnitas (from the fridge) to recipe, rather than chops. Excellent summer meal.
