Recipe from Damn Delicious.
- 1 lb. pork tenderloin, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
- 2 Tbs. canola oil
- 1/2 medium sweet onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
- 3 Tbs. freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1 Tbs. freshly squeezed lime juice
Season pork with salt and pepper.
Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add pork, onion, garlic, chili powder and cumin. Cook, stirring often, until pork has browned, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Stir in orange juice and lime juice, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Cook until reduced, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Serve in warmed tortillas or over rice with diced onion, black beans, corn, lime wedges, cilantro, or whatever toppings you'd like.
