  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 small red onion, very thinly sliced
  • One 12-ounce pork tenderloin, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices on an angle
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Red Slaw:
  • 2 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
  • 1 small red bell pepper, very thinly sliced
  • 1/4 small red onion, very thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • Lime wedges, for serving
  • 2 cups pineapple chunks
  • 1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Directions
  • For the pork: Combine the cilantro, lime juice, oil, chile powder, garlic and onions in a large dish. Add the pork slices and turn to coat. Preheat a grill on medium-high heat.

  • For the red slaw: Combine the cabbage, cilantro, oil, vinegar, chile powder, bell peppers, red onions and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl. Toss to mix and set aside.

  • Remove the pork from the marinade and discard the remaining marinade. Sprinkle the pork on both sides with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Grill, turning once, until browned and still a little rosy inside, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a large plate.

  • Grill the tortillas, turning once, until grill marks appear and the tortillas are softened, about 1 minute. Transfer two tortillas per plate. Divide the pork and a little slaw among the tortillas. Serve with lime wedges.

  • Evenly divide the pineapple among four bowls, top each with 1/4 cup sour cream, 1/2 tablespoon sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Serve with the pork tacos.
