Pork Tacos

On 27th March 2015, This was Dinner

Like an idiot I forgot to get the pork belly out of the freezer so Mr S just picked up some pork steaks for this.


  • Dice some pork steaks
  • Slice some spring onions
  • Finely chop a couple of garlic cloves
  • Slice a red chilli
  • Chop up a couple of little gem lettuces
  • Chop up a tomato
  • Chop of an avocado (do this at last minute to avoid browning)
  • Cut an eating apple into matchsticks
  • Preheat the oven to 180ºc (fan)
  • Get fennel seeds, cumin seeds, smoked paprika, black beans, light soy sauce, olive oil, chilli sauce, lime, natural yoghurt, tacos & seasoning ready.


Toss the pork with the paprika and the fennel seeds and some oil. Heat a frying pan and cook the pork in stages (don’t overfill the pan). A few minutes each side should ensure it is cooked through.

Heat some oil in the empty pan and cook the onion and garlic. Add the beans along with their liquid and leave to simmer whilst you make the salad.

Pop the lettuce, tomato, chilli and avocado together along with the apple. Drizzle with a little soy and some oil and give it a good old squeeze of lime.  Toss everything together.

Heat the tacos in the oven according to the instructions.

Give the beans a little bit of a mashing then add back the pork to warm through.

Stir a little chilli sauce through the yoghurt and serve everything up to build your own.


The recipe can be found here or in Jamie Oliver’s 15 Minute Meals*. Whilst finding the link I also came across this petition for practical food education in schools around the world. On the day I read that…

In a study of 2,976 families in the UK, only four parents thought their child was very overweight. Medical assessments put the figure at 369.

…I signed it as I think it’s a great idea.

*Here’s where I challenge you to make this lot in 15 minutes. I’ve still not achieved it but I’m not complaining, these were deliciuos.
