YUM!!!

Buddy of mine cooks for Whole Foods in D.C. Today he posted a recipe for these tacos but the pork was not seasoned and it was broiled rather then grilled. All day at work today I thought about this recipe and made changes in my mind.

First I cut up some pineapple and coated it with some siracha and grilled it along with onions that had a nice coating of Worcestershire. I wanted to soften both and add a bit of flavorful char to the outside.


Next I rubbed some porkchops with cumin and lime and grilled til just done.


To finish I grilled some flour tortillas.


The tortillas were filled with some of the sliced pork, a couple spoonfulls of the pineapple and onion (which were chopped along with some cilantro) and a bit of fresh salsa from Publix.


A close up view. Although simple in nature these tacos were bursting with flavor. Sweet, Salty, and Spicy all at the same time. Also very simple and quick to make.

Very nice Vlap! Excellent job. The flavor of grilled pineapple is fantastic. Now how could somebody "boil"pork and expect it to have any flavor?? You did a superb job it looks excellent!
