1 large pork tenderloin (about 1 1/4 pounds), trimmed

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons fajita seasoning

2 bell peppers (red and/or yellow), sliced

2 small red onions (11/2 thickly sliced, 1/2 thinly sliced)

6 radishes, thinly sliced

2 Persian cucumbers, chopped

2 teaspoons finely chopped pickled jalapenos (mild or hot), plus 1 tablespoon brine

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1/2 cup fresh cilantro

Juice of 1/2 lime, plus wedges for serving

12 corn tortillas, warmed


  1. Put a rimmed baking sheet under the broiler; preheat 5 minutes. Toss the pork with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 teaspoon fajita seasoning in a large bowl. Transfer the pork to the hot baking sheet and broil 5 minutes. Meanwhile, add the bell peppers, thickly sliced onions, 1 tablespoon olive oil and the remaining 1 teaspoon fajita seasoning to the bowl; toss.
  2. Turn the pork and scatter the vegetables around it. Broil, tossing the vegetables and turning the pork occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and charred around the edges and a thermometer inserted into the center of the pork registers 145 degrees F, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove the pork to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes. (Continue broiling the vegetables, if needed.)
  3. Toss the thinly sliced onion, radishes, cucumbers, jalapenos and brine in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Add the cilantro, the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and the lime juice; toss.
  4. Slice the pork and toss with the peppers and onions. Serve in the tortillas with the cucumber salad and lime wedges.
