Fabulous Pork Tacos Recipe

I made pork tacos for the Superbowl modeled after my favorite taqueria -- a hole in the wall in Playa Del Carmen called El Fogon. I may not have quite matched El Fogon, but these are darn good! I highly recommend them. I served them with Homemade Corn Tortillas (see my recipe) which were great, but they'll taste great with any tortillas!

  1. Chop the pork ribs into small, 1/2 inch cubes. Put the chopped pork, onion, green pepper, jalapeno, cumin, chili powder, salt, and Tabasco in a large ziploc bag. Squeeze all the air out and seal the bag. Marinate in a refrigerator for 2 hours to 1 day.
  2. Heat a large electric griddle to high heat, or heat a large frying pan on high. Place the marinated meat on the grill. Using a spatula, separate the meat as much as possible (it will stick together after marinating). Cook for 8-10 minutes, turning frequently, until the onions and peppers have carmelized a bit and the meat is nicely browned. The smell will be amazing!
  3. At El Fogon, they put a little Queso Fresco (soft mexican cheese) on before serving. It does make it taste even better. I've served it both ways, so take your pick!
  4. Heat the tortillas over the grill or in the oven, then serve a couple of spoonfuls of the meat into a taco shell, and add a little cilantro and a lime wedge on the side. YUM!

    I could eat Mexican everyday, so it's inevitable that I'll be making these delicious looking taco's soon.
