Lime Marinated Pork Tacos

I had gotten some boneless pork chops on sale the other day. I had only a vague idea what I was going to do with them. I started throwing things together for a marinade and this was the result. I thought it turned out surprisingly well and very close to taco truck fodder.

Lime Marinated Pork Tacos

1 1\4 pounds boneless center cut pork chops
juice of 3 limes
1 Tbs olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt
1\2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1\2 tsp ground cumin
1 Tbs minced garlic
taco sized flour tortillas
sour cream
salsa verde

Combine lime juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, cumin and garlic in a zippable plastic bag. Squish ingredients together in the bag to distribute. Add pork chops and marinate at least 2 hours, turning frequently.

Heat a cast iron frying pan over medium heat. Add another tablespoon olive oil to the pan. Drain marinated pork pieces and sear, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and allow to sit at least 15 minutes before slicing thinly on the diagonal.

Assemble tacos by placing pork strips in the center of the tortilla and cover with salsa and sour cream.
