What to do with pork tenderloin on sale

Or, a Successful Taco Experiment.

Cook the pork like this. Except I didn't have an orange so I used half a grapefruit, and added a liberal dusting of chipotle chili powder. And the loin was small so it only cooked for 2 hours.

Shred the meat and stir in a few big spoonfuls of the pan juices, to keep it moist and soak up the yummy flavor.

Assemble in corn tortillas with:

jack or mild cheddar cheese
salsa verde
finely chopped radishes and cubed avocado

I happened to have all these things lurking in my refrigerator but it turned out so good that I might have to do it on purpose next time.
