“An intro to fusion foods. Teriyaki marinated pork tenderloin turned into a sweet and spicy taco. Could also be used as a filling for some oven-baked chimichangas, or burritos. This is just a basic recipe I cam eup with using ingredients I had on hand. I'm sure others can find other ways to use it or add/remove things to make it their own. Try it!”
1hr 40mins
6-8 tacos

  1. Place tenderloin in ziplock bag with 1 cup of teriyaki sauce. Marinate for at least an hour. Overnight is preferred.
  2. Preheat oven to 450°F Place pork in baking dish with onions and bell peppers. Season pork with 1Tbsp of cumin and chili powder. Pour can of tomatoes and chilis overtop. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in the oven 20 minutes. Pour remaining teriyaki sauce on top of tenderloin, recover, and place in oven for another five minutes, or until pork is medium rare.
