1packetTruvia, Stevia, or other 0 calorie sweetener
6ounceslean ground pork
3cupsprepared coleslaw mix in a bag
6small(3-inch) corn tortillas
Prepare the Pork for the Tacos
In a medium size bowl, mix the green onion, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil and cayenne until well blended. Add the ground pork and mix well to incorporate all the spices.
Make the Coleslaw for the Tacos
Make the dressing by stirring together the Stevia and rice vinegar in a small cup.
Place the coleslaw and cilantro in a bowl. Pour on the sweetened vinegar dressing and toss well to combine.
Cook the Pork
Heat an 8-inch skillet. If the pork is very lean, then spray the pan with nonstick spray before adding the meat to the skillet. Brown the meat over medium heat, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, for about 5 minutes or until the pork is firm, browned and fully cooked.
Warm the Tortillas
Spray a paper towel with water lightly and wrap the tortillas in the towel. Microwave for 20 to 25 seconds, or until soft and hot.
Assemble the Tacos
Divide the cooked pork evenly between the warmed tortillas.
Top the tacos with the seasoned slaw and serve hot.
Cooking Notes:Pork is the traditional meat for these Asian style tacos however the dish works very well with ground beef also.Rather than regular coleslaw mix, tri-colored slaw can be substituted or even plain white or red or shredded cabbage works fine.For super quick prep, chop the green onion, garlic and ginger together in a food processor. You'll need about a ½-inch "coin" or knob of ginger to make 1 tablespoon.I find that mixing up the meat works best by using the old fashioned hand method. It's easy to get pockets of ginger and garlic; mixing by hand ensures that it is even and well mixed up.Serving size: 3 3-inch Asian Tacos5*SmartPoints (Green plan)5*SmartPoints (Blue plan)5*SmartPoints (Purple plan)4*PointsPlus (Old plan)
