What to do

  • 1. Preheat oven to 200°C.

  • 2. In a food processor blitz chillies,half the lime zest and lime juice, garlic, oil, salt, pepper & the bottom stalks of the coriander (finely chopped) and save rest for serving.

  • 3. Rub this marinade all over pork and leave to marinate for at least an hour or preferably overnight.

  • 4. For the pickled onion. Combine 80ml of vinegar, 20g sugar and mix until sugar dissolves. Add onion rings, toss, cover and leave for 30 mins.

  • 5. For the crema mix the rest of the lime juice, sour cream and chilli powder and set aside.

  • 6. Once the pork has had a good marinating session its time to cook this hunk of love. Cook on a high heat on bbq or fry pan getting a good charred seal all over. Place in oven for approx 10 mins (depending on thickness of loin). Once cooked leave to rest for at least 5 mins.

  • 7. While pork is resting throw the wrapped tacos onto bbq (turning a couple times) or in the oven for 5mins to warm up.

  • 8. With a nice sharp knife thinly slice up that pork ready for serving.

  • 9. Time to eat. Taco-pork-onion-crema-coriander-squeeze of lime juice – yum.

  • Tips

    • Serve with chilli black beans.
    • Chipotles in abodo sauce is quite a common way to buy chipotles. They come in a can/jar and can be found at specialty supermarkets. They can be brought online. They are well worth the purchase!
    • This recipe would work well with chicken thigh or breast meat, prawns, beef or lamb strips.
