How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 2

Heat an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil; swirl to coat. Sprinkle pork with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes or until browned. Turn pork over; place pan in oven. Bake at 425° for 12 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145° or until desired degree of doneness. Remove pork from pan. Let stand 10 minutes; cut pork across the grain into thin slices.

Step 3

Combine remaining 1 tablespoon oil, cabbage, and next 4 ingredients (through red pepper) in a bowl. Combine juice and avocado in a bowl. Add avocado mixture to cabbage mixture; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Toss gently to combine.

Step 4

Heat tortillas according to package directions. Place 2 tortillas on each of 4 plates; divide pork evenly among tortillas. Top tacos evenly with cabbage mixture.

I made it according to the directions and my 8 yr old loved it as much as us. My 6 yr old wasn't quite ready for it.

Made slaw to recipe using bagged coleslaw. Paired well with tacos filled with leftover pulled pork butt. Served with black beans & corn.

Unusual but a great flavor combination! I did not add the raddish as I do not care for it. I did season the pork with cumin, garlic powder, chipotle chili powder on top of the snp. So didn't miss the cheese...adding to our regular rotation.
