Lime-Cilantro Pork Tacos

We tried this out in the apartment last night. It's awesome, trust me.

1 lb pork tenderloin (trimmed and cut into thin strips)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 and 1/2 cups thinly sliced onion
1 small jalapeno pepper (chopped)
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup chopped plum tomato
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 and 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
flour tortillas

1. Heat a large-nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork with black pepper and salt. Add oil to the pan. Add the pork and brown it. Remove pork from pan and place to the side (ideally in a bowl or something).
2. Add onion and jalapeno to pan. Saute until tender.
3. Add broth and reduce heat. Let simmer for a minute or so. Stir in tomato and simmer for two minutes.
4. Return pork and accumulated juices to pan. Stir in cilantro and lime juice. Cook until pork is done.
5. Warm the tortillas in a small skillet (no need for oil or anything).
6. Serve and enjoy.

Sounds damn fine, and I will be trying this out! Always appreciate the South-Western style recipes.

One time when I was in New Mexico I ate in a restaurant called the Coyote Cafe which I think was in Santa Fe. It had the best corn-bread I've ever eaten.

Do you know we call cilantro coriander' down here?

Anaglyph - I hadn't realized coriander and cilantro were the same thing. But, blame that on the Spanish. They apparantly have two different names for it.

As for corn bread, I think I might be able to come up with a recipe for that, if you'd like.
