How to make Caramelized Pork Tacos With Pineapple Salsa

Step 1: In a heavy pan, heat the oil over medium heat. To the hot oil, add the shallot, garlic, and jalapeno. Saute for about 2 minutes until aromatic. Adjust the heat to high, add in the pork along with the fish sauce and stir fry for a couple of minutes until the pork is brown. Add in the sugar and water while on very high heat and stir once, allowing the pork to caramelize for approximately a minute, undisturbed. Do the same process until the pork is golden brown.

Step 2: In a medium bowl, toss the Pineapple Salsa ingredients.

Step 3: Quickly warm the tortillas in a skillet with a bit of oil. Between 6 tortillas, arrange the pork and top each with salsa and chilli sauce.

NOTES:

To make the chilli sauce, mix two parts mayo with one part hot sauce. You can add more depending on how spicy you want your hot sauce. Or use Sriracha for a moderate kick. To thin out the consistency, add water.

Separately store the pork, salsa, and sauce to keep the leftovers.
