I make pork tacos probably more than any other type of tacos, and these skillet pork tacos are absolutely, hands down, the new family favorite! It took just a few minutes to cube the tenderloin, but if you're short on time ask your butcher to cut it up for you. And if you only have ground pork on hand, that instead!
The pork is rubbed with big flavor spices, like ancho chili and cumin, and then tossed in cilantro, onions and a bit of cilantro. Then it's time to break out your cast iron skillet, my friend. Trust me, it's EXACTLY the skillet you need for this recipe. Cast iron retains heat which means you'll get a flavorful crust on the outside of the pork. And, oh my GAWD, those little crispy, crunchy bits on the outside are so flipping GOOD!!
When the pork is all cooked and ready to eat, go crazy with your favorite toppings! I love putting out all the toppings and having my kids and husband help themselves. No one likes the same topping combo, so this makes life EXTRA easy! These skillet pork tacos are gonna add EXTRA excitement and tastiness to Taco Tuesdays!
