Wash produce before use


Heat the pork carnitas

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, stirring once or twice, until the meat begins to crisp around the edges, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in half the mojo marinade (reserving the remaining marinade for serving) and cook until combined, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Warm the tortillas

Arrange the tortillas on a plate, overlapping slightly, and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave for 20 to 30 seconds, until just pliable and warmed through.


Set out the tortillas, pork carnitas, pickled onions, cabbage, salsa verde, and remaining mojo marinade. Invite everyone to assemble their own tacos.
