I think if there is one thing we can agree that makes sense in this world right now, is Cinco de Mayo falling on a #tacotuesday this year.

This pork was one of my favorite meats we received from our shipment from @butcher_box this month!
.
.
For the meat:
🔹1 lb of pork tenderloin. 🔹1cup green salsa.
🔹4 cloves garlic.
🔹1/2 chopped white onion.
🔹1/2 small can diced green chili. .
.
Directions:
Cut the tenderloin in to about 2.5 – 3 inch sections. Season with season salt, or a mixture of salt, paprika, and onion powder. -sear pork on all sides to seal in the moisture. -in a pan, add the pieces of meat , the salsa, onion, garlic and chili ( I even added the rest of a red onion I had to use up.)
-simmer on a low heat for about an hour, with the lid on, checking occasionally. -once the meat can be easily pulled apart with forks, it’s ready!
-shred the pork with 2 forks in the pan. (This takes a while, the smaller you shred it the more flavor it will pick up from the sauce)
.
Let the meat sit in this pan and turn off the heat, it should soak up most of the marinade it was cooking in.

Check out my pickled red onion post for my recipe! It is saved in my highlights!
.
For the cabbage:
🔹thinly sliced green cabbage.
Sauce:
🔹cilantro. 🔹sour cream.
🔹Lime juice.
🔹Serrano or jalepeno to your spice liking. (I didn’t have any so I just used some green dragon hot sauce)
🔹blend this up in a blender or with a hand mixer and, toss some the cabbage in it. .
.
For the shell:
@cutdacarb cut in to rounds, add a little cooking oil spray and add your favorite cheese to the top, make a mini quesadilla basically, and serve! .
