SRC - Pork Fajitas

Time for another Secret Recipe Club reveal I love getting my blog assignment each month and this month I was assigned the blog Cooking Mimi by Micha.  Micha's blog is full of wonderful looking recipes and I had a lot of fun looking through them all trying to decide what to make. It’s a mix of traditional Southern food, good old American home cooking, and her favorite ethnic inspired dishes.  Some of the recipes we  considered were the  Chicken Paprikash and the Pumpkin Spice Latte Cake  because even though it's still 90 plus degrees here in TX, fall has officially arrived in our house!

We eventually settled on the  Pork Fajitas as Randal thought they looked good and fajitas are not something we make often, plus we have never had pork fajitas before.

We both really enjoyed them and would definitely make them again. We found a great deal on boneless pork ribs, which were perfect for this dishThe seasoning and flavours were great and we served ours with a touch of sour cream and our favourite mango salsa on the side.

1 lb boneless pork chops
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp taco seasoning
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 red onion, sliced
flour tortillas
grated cheese and sour cream for serving

Combine the olive oil, lemon juice and taco seasoning in a large bowl.  Add the pork chops to the bowl, cover and refrigerate for 2-4 hours.

Slice the pork chops into strips and cook over high heat for 2-3 minutes.  Remove the pork,  add the sliced peppers and onion and cook for 3-5 minutes.  Add the pork back into the pepper mixture.  Serve with tortillas, cheese and sour cream.

I have never used pork for fajitas either. No idea why. I've used beef, chicken, shrimp and just plain veggie. So glad you chose this for SRC reveal this month. It is one of those knock myself in the head, why didn't I think of that, moments.

How strange - I have also never done a pork fajita. Crazy! Great post.

Add me to the "I've never had pork fajitas" club. Like Wendy, we've tried just about everything else, but like you, it hasn't been at home. ;) These sound nice and easy to make, and delicious! Great choice for SRC!

Pork for fajitas is new to me too. Sounds great though.

Pork fajitas have always been a favorite in our house and this one looks fantastic! I like the addition of the mango salsa on the side too. Great choice!
