A tender, juicy pork tenderloin, covered in crispy bacon placed on top of a tortilla with a sweet and spicy mango cabbage slaw.
Grease grill grates with olive oil and turn on all the burners to medium heat. Once ready to put the pork on the grill, turn off the burner that would be directly under the pork. You don’t want the all your burners on, otherwise the bacon will flare up and burn your meat. If using charcoal, when ready to cook your pork, push all the coals to one side.
Spiral wrap bacon around the tenderloin and spread steak sauce over pork. This holds the bacon in place, plus gives it great flavor. You can secure the ends of the bacon with a toothpick.
Place pork on the grill on the side without the flame. Cook, rotating every 5 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 150ºF, about 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, to make the cabbage slaw, add all cabbage slaw ingredients to a bowl; mix until incorporated. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Place tenderloin on a plate and cover with foil for about 5-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, if you choose, you can lightly heat up your tortilla shells by placing them on the grill for about 30 seconds or so and then flip. Just don’t burn them.
Place 2 ounces of pork onto each taco shell and top with cabbage slaw. For optional toppings, you can add sliced avocado, bbq sauce, hot sauce, and cotija cheese.
These spicy, satisfying tacos are always a major crowd-pleaser. And they’re incredibly simple to whip up!
