Moo Shu Pork Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

Prep

Cook

Total

Yield 4 servings

Mix up Taco night with these pork and cabbage tacos. They are fresh, tasty and chock-full of veggies!

Ingredients

Pineapple Salsa 

Pork and Veggie filling

Hoison Drizzle 

Instructions

Prepare the pineapple salsa by mixing all the ingredients in a small bowl. Place in the fridge to chill and give the flavors time to merge.

Slice the scallions, separating the green and white parts. Set aside.

Shred the cabbage if needed and chop up the mushrooms small. Set aside.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high and begin to brown the pork with the scallion whites, ginger and garlic. Once the meat is broken up, add the mushrooms and cabbage with a pinch of salt and pepper. Continue to cook, tossing and mixing everything up until the meat browns totally and the moisture comes out of the veggies reducing in size about half, about 10-15 minutes.

While the meat and veggies are cooking, make the hoisin drizzle by combining yogurt and hoisin sauce until smooth. Add a tsp of water at a time until it reaches the desired consistency.

Stir soy sauce into the pork and cook for about 5 minutes or so allowing the moister to evaporate. Serve on your favorite tortillas (I like corn, the boys like flour) by adding the pork mixture and topping it with the pineapple salsa, hoisin drizzle, the green tops of the scallions and a squirt of lime juice.

Enjoy!

Notes

  • We usually get about ten tacos out of this at least, but it really depends on the size of your tortillas. I split the meat into quarters and just top accordingly. Since the 7-Year-Old isn't the biggest fan, I sometimes get a bowl of the leftovers for lunch the next day.
  • If you don't have red onion, you can mix the green scallion tops in the salsa, and it works just as well. I've done this a few times in a pinch.
  • The nutritional information is for 1/4 of the recipe. It does not include the tortillas.
