Pork Tacos In Red Indian Chile Sauce
  • 250 g or ½ lb finely cubed pork (you could also use chicken)
  • 7 dried Indian chiles, adjust to taste
  • 1 small onion, halved
  • 1 medium tomato, halved
  • 3 garlic clove
  • salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp whole cumin seed
Instructions
To make salsa topping:
  1. Mix all ingredients until well combined.
How to prepare pork:
  1. Heat a frying pan or griddle over medium heat. Once hot place the onion and tomatoes, allow to charr on all sides. Once the onion and tomato have begun charring place the garlic cloves on the pan/griddle and only leave for a few minutes. Remove from pan/griddle and allow to cool. In the meantime toast the chiles, being carful not to burn and only allowing to slightly darken. Remove from pan/griddle. Peel the tomatoes and if you want scrape off a bit of the blackend skin from the onion and garlic. Place charred onions, garlic, chiles and peeled tomatoes inside blender. Add all the spice and blend until you have a smooth sauce. Set aside.
  2. Heat a little bit of oil in a pan, once hot add pork and cook all the way through. Next pour the sauce over the pork. Turn heat to low and allow to simmer until sauce has thickened. Taste and adjust salt if needed.
Serve pork in corn tortillas, and top with salsa. Also serve with your favorite vegetable side dishes. I'll share the side dish recipes another time.
