Asian Tacos

We’ve survived another Monday and now it’s time for the best sort of pick-me-up TACO TUESDAYS! I have a recipe that is delicious and simple for a quick Tuesday night meal for family, friends or just yourself and Netflix. This recipe happened out of luck, the need for a a quick bite one night after taking the dog on a walk. I opened the fridge and started pulling out things that seemed to go together. I find that those are the best sort of meals, the ones that happen by accident and neccessity. I hope you find this as delicious as I did and HAPPY EATING!

Ingredients  for the Tacos:

  • 4 Pork Chop cut up
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 6 Tablespoons of Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon of olive oil
  • Corn tortillas

Ingredients for the Slaw:

  • 1 Cucumber diced up
  • 2 carrots diced up
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon of rice wine vinegar
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Ingredients for the Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup of Manyase
  • 2 Tablespoons Korean barbecue Sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons of Sarcha Sauce

The creation of The Asian Tacos:

  1. For the pork: Cut the pork chops into small cubes. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper.
  2. Add the pork,soy sauce, sweet chili sauce and garlic to a bowl. Cover and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. After the pork has marinated, add olive oil to a pan and wait until the oil is hot. Add the pork to the pan. Cook until the cubes of pork are white inside.
  4. For the slaw: Cut up the cucumbers and carrots. Place in a bowl and add the garlic, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, salt and pepper. Place in the fridge to marinate for at least 10 minutes.
  5. For the Sauce: Combine the manyanse, Korean Barbecue Sauce and Sarcha sauce with a fork and set aside.
  6. The creation of the Asian Tacos: In the same pan that you used to cook the pork, toast the tortillas. Once the tortillas are toast you are ready to assemble the tacos. I personally like meat, slaw and sauce, but feel free to get creative.


Happy Eating!
