For the final day of the Twin Cities Live Kitchen Star Competition, I needed to make a recipe that had only 5 ingredients. I made these Carnitas(Spanish terminolgy for pulled pork tacos) a few weeks before for Bubbie and Will. Pork Tenderloin happen to be on sale and we were in need of some home-cooked food in our house. I put it in the crockpot on a Thursday night and on Friday we had a delicious crock full of pulled pork. We used what we had in our fridge at the time, which happened to be the below ingredients and it was a hit. I like to use the Trader Joe’s peanut dressing if you shop at TJ’s. For the challenge I had to shop at Cub and the closest thing was Kraft Sesame dressing. These are great for a Friday night when you try and stop yourself from dialing your local pizza joint’s phone number.
1 Extra Lean Pork Center Cut Loin Filet (Mesquite Barbeque Flavor)
1 Red Cabbage (shredded)
1 Package of Medium Size Tortillas
1 Bottle of Kraft Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing
Remove visible fat from Pork Loin. Place Pork in crock-pot on low with 4 cups of water. Run crock-pot on low for 8 hours.
When pork is done cooking, drain water and fat. Pork will “pull” or fall apart easily with a fork. Set aside.
Dice avocado and set aside. Shred cabbage and set aside.
Heat tortillas and stuff with pork, avocado and cabbage. Drizzle with Sesame dressing.
