A tender, juicy pork tenderloin, covered in crispy bacon placed on top of a tortilla with a sweet and spicy mango cabbage slaw.
Serves: 8 tacos
Ingredients
  • 8 corn tortilla shells or flour (I used Mission 50 calories white corn tortilla)
  • For Grilled Pork
  • 1 lbs. pork tenderloin
  • 2 sliced apple wood smoked bacon
  • 1 tbsp. Trader Joe's Steak Sauce or BBQ Sauce
  • Cabbage Slaw:
  • 2 cups cabbage, shredded
  • 1 cup mango, diced
  • ¼ cup cilantro, sliced thin
  • ½ jalapeno, seeded, diced small
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • pinch of sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • Optional toppings: BBQ sauce, hot sauce, Cojita Cheese and avocado.
Instructions
  1. Grease olive oil over grill grates and turn on all the burners to medium heat. Once your ready to put the pork on the grill, turn off the burner that would be directly under the pork. You don't want the all your burners on, other wise the bacon will flare up and burn your meat. If using charcoal, when ready to cook your pork, push all the coals to one side.
  2. Spiral wrap bacon around the tenderloin and spread steak sauce over pork. This holds the bacon in place, plus gives great flavor. Also you can secure the ends of the bacon with a toothpick.
  3. Place pork on the grill on side without the flame. Cook rotating every five minutes until the internal temperature reaches 150 degrees. About 15-20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile to make the cabbage slaw, add all cabbage slaw ingredients in a bowl; mix until incorporated. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  5. Place tenderloin on a plate and cover with foil for about 5 - 10 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, if you chose, you can lightly heat up your tortilla shells by placing them on the grill for about 30 seconds or so and then flip. Just don't burn them.
  7. Place 2 oz of pork on to each taco shell and top with Cabbage Slaw.
