These are so easy, and so delicious! They cook up very quickly. Tender pork with onions, peppers, garlic, lime juice...well, you get the idea. From The Recipe Hall of Fame Cookbook, with a few changes.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 lb pork tenderloin, julienned
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper (or more to taste)
- 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 small onion, thinly sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons fajita seasoning mix (I used Paul Prudhomme's Fajita Magic, but use whatever kind you like--there are a couple posted on Z)
- 1 lime, juice of
- 8 6-inch flour tortillas, warmed
Garnishes of your choice
- shredded lettuce
- chopped tomato
- avocado, slices
- shredded cheese (etc)
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat.
- Add pork, sprinkle with the salt and pepper.
- Cook, and stir constantly for 2 minutes.
- Add peppers, onion, garlic, cumin and fajita seasoning, continue to cook until the vegetables are crips-tender, about 3-4 minutes.
- Stir in the lime juice, and saute for about 2 more minutes.
- To serve, roll 3/4 cup meat mixture in each tortilla and garnish as desired.
- I like to put the meat and tortillas in a platter and bring it to the table, and let everyone make up their own.
These turned out fantastically. The pork was juicy and flavorful while the veggies tender and well spiced. Thanks for a great recipe - especially the idea for fajita seasoning mix.
This is so easy and so good. We had leftover pork tenderloin and simply used that. Because my pork was already cooked, I cooked the vegetables first and added the pork at the end to warm it. I used a full packet of store bought fajita mix and it was perfect.
I've never made fajitas before. These were good, but a lot of work for a weeknight dinner (chopping tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, onions, etc.) Also, I could not find the Fajita Magic seasoning, and a co-worker told me that she had tried all of the other brands and didn't like any of them, so I made my own from the suggested RZ recipe. I don't often order fajitas, so I don't know if they compare, but I thought it could use a little more zip. I made http://www.recipezaar.com/Spicy-Guacamole-36401 to go with them, and that gave it some zip. I WOULD make these again because I think it's a great way to use pork, but maybe I'd marinate it first?
