Total time
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce or wheat-free tamari (for gluten-free)
  • ½ teaspoon ground chipotle pepper (smoked or plain paprika can be used as an alternative)
  • 1 pound thinly-cut boneless pork chops (1/2-inch thick), cut into strips
  • 8 small corn tortillas, warmed
  • 1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup pico de gallo (or your favorite salsa)
  • Dairy-free sour cream, avocado, or guacamole (optional)
  1. Combine the honey, olive oil, lemon juice, soy sauce and ground chipotle pepper in a medium bowl, and whisk to combine.
  2. Add the sliced pork to the marinade and let it sit for 15 minutes.
  3. Heat a skillet over high heat. Add the slices of pork to the skillet and cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, flipping with tongs in the middle of the cooking process. Once cooked, remove the pork to a plate.
  4. Arrange the corn tortillas on a platter. Sprinkle each with equal amounts of shredded lettuce and pico de gallo. Arrange a few pieces of pork on top of each taco, and top with dairy-free sour cream, avocado, or guacamole, if desired.
