Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Pickle the onion

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
In a small sauce pot, bring the quick-pickle brine and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water to a boil. Remove from the heat, add the onion, and season with salt and pepper. Cover and let stand, stirring occasionally, while you marinate the pork and prepare the mango salad.

2

Marinate the pork

  • Set aside 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] citrus marinade for the mango salad.
  • Pat the pork dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.
In a resealable plastic bag, combine the pork and remaining citrus marinade; seal the bag, turn to coat the pork, and set aside.

3

Make the mango salad

  • Trim the ends from the mango; cut away the peel, then cut the flesh away from the pit into halves. Thinly slice the halves crosswise, then cut the fruit into thin slices.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
  • If using the jalapeño, remove the stem, ribs, and seeds; thinly slice the jalapeño. Wash your hands after handling.
In a medium bowl, stir together the mango, cilantro, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] citrus marinade, and as much jalapeño as you like. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4

Cook the pork

  • Remove the pork from the marinade, shaking off the excess.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, turning frequently, until browned but still faintly pink within, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
While the pork cooks, prepare the refried beans.

5

Make the refried beans

  • Rinse the pinto beans.
  • Drain the pickled onion and transfer to a small bowl. Wipe out the pot.
In the same pot used for the pickled onion, warm 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the pinto beans and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and using a fork, masher, or the bottom of a bowl, mash the beans to a coarse paste.

Serve

Transfer the beans, pork, pickled onion, and mango salad to individual plates and serve.
