Watermelon Pork Tacos Recipe
1 pork tenderloin, cut into 1 inch thick slices
1 Tbsp. onion powder
1 tsp. red chili flakes
1 tsp. black pepper
2 Tbsp. minced garlic
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 Tbsp. oyster sauce
1/2 tsp. sesame oil
2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. sesame oil
1 cup watermelon (cut into 1/4 inch cubes)
1 cup seeded English cucumber (cut into 1/4 inch cubes)
1 Hass avocado (pitted, peeled, cut into 1/4 inch cubes)
Lettuce (to be used as “taco shells”):
1 romaine lettuce head
How To Make The Watermelon Pork Tacos:
To prepare the pork, combine all of the pork ingredients in a Ziploc bag and marinate for 30 minutes.
While the pork is marinating, whisk together all the vinaigrette ingredients.
In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients for the salsa. Very gently fold in the vinaigrette. Chill.
Trim off the soft dark green end of the romaine. Cut off the root end and separate the leaves to create 4-inch-long lettuce “shells”. Rinse, dry, and chill the leaves.
Preheat a grill to medium (or a broiler to 450 F). Discard the marinade. Grill the pork for 3 minutes on each side. Remove from the heat. Let rest 3 minutes and roughly chop into 1/2 inch cubes.
Fill the lettuce shells with the pork, top with the salsa, and enjoy!
