Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 450 g pork tenderloins trimmed
  • 4 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 4 teaspoons grainy mustard
  • pinch each salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup 2% Balkan-style plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas (6 inches/15 cm), warmed
  • 1 avocado peeled, pitted and chopped
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves torn
  • lime wedges
Onions and Peppers:
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 1 sweet yellow pepper and sweet orange pepper, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt pepper and ground cumin

Method

In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook pork, turning, until browned on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, in bowl, mix maple syrup with mustard; set aside.

Arrange pork on lightly greased foil-lined rimmed baking sheet; bake in 425 F (220 C) oven, turning and brushing with half of the maple syrup mixture halfway through, until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to cutting board; cover loosely with foil and let stand for 5 minutes. Cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices; toss with remaining maple syrup mixture and the salt and pepper.

Chili Onions and Peppers: Meanwhile, in same nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, stirring occasionally, until softened and light golden, about 8 minutes. Add yellow pepper, orange pepper, chili powder, garlic, salt, pepper and cumin; cook, stirring, until peppers are softened, about 7 minutes.

In small bowl, mix yogurt with lime juice. Top tortillas with yogurt mixture, onion mixture, pork, avocado and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
