Braised Pork Tacos
Recipe Type: Main
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 20
  • ½ recipe of leftover Hearty Homestyle Pork Ragout (from this site)
  • 8-10 corn or flour tortillas
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 8 ounces queso fresco, crumbled
  • 2 cups thinly sliced or shredded cabbage (green or red)
  • ½ red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  1. Preheat the oven to 300°. Heat the tortillas, by placing directly over a gas flame and flipping with tongs until some char appears, or if you have an electric stove, place a skillet on the stove and heat to a medium high. Place a tortilla in the skillet and heat on one side until the tortilla begins to take on some color and becomes fragrant. Use tongs to flip the tortilla and repeat on the other side. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep the tortillas warm in the oven until ready to eat.
  2. Reheat the braised pork in the microwave or on the stovetop. While the pork heats, arrange the tomato, avocado, cabbage, onion, cilantro and queso fresco on a platter. Transfer the pork to a serving bowl and serve with the vegetables and corn tortillas.
  1. You can add hot sauce or salsa if you like, but since the pork is closer to Italian than Mexican influence, I chose not to.
