Grilled Pork Tenderloin Tacos with Fresh Apricot Salsa

Makes 10 to 12 tacos


2 pounds pork tenderloin, sliced into 3/4-inch-thick rounds

salt and black pepper

Canola oil, for brushing grill grates


8 ripe apricots, diced (about 2 cups)

1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro

2 green onions, both green and white parts, thinly sliced

The zest and juice of 2 limes

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, depending on your desired spiciness

10 to 12 (6-inch) tortillas

Lime wedges

Preheat grill to medium-high and lightly brush grates with canola oil. Season pork with salt and black pepper on both sides. Grill for 5 minutes without touching, then flip and grill an additional 3 minutes or until charred all over yet still slightly tender in the middle. Transfer to a plate, cover with tinfoil, and let rest for 5 minutes to seal in the juices, before serving.

For the salsa, combine all ingredients in a bowl and gently toss.

To warm the tortillas, place on the upper level of the grill away from direct heat for 1 minute per side, or until heated through. Tuck 2 pieces of pork into each tortilla, top with salsa, and serve with fresh lime wedges on the side.
