Recipe

  1. Mix the marinade together and toss the shredded pork in it to coat. Set aside.

    This recipe works perfectly with frozen meat. Check what you have in your freezer and defrost meat thoroughly before cooking. If using defrosted cooked meat, you can only reheat this meat once so only cook what you can eat.
  2. For the salsa, quarter the tomatoes and remove the seeds. Chop small and place in a bowl. Layer the basil leaves one on top of the other, roll them up and slice so you are left with ribbons of basil, add these and the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and stir. Season to taste.

  3. Get a frying pan nice and hot and drizzle some oil in, fry the pork and keep tossing until it becomes slightly crispy and hot. You are now ready to serve dinner!

  4. The tortillas can either be steamed or popped into the microwave. Just follow packet instructions. Build everything up into a tortilla, wrap it up and try and eat without making a mess!
