Ground Pork Tacos with Carambola & Tomato Salsa

Crunchy Orange-Cilantro Slaw

Cooking time

25 minutes




570 /serving

No question who’s the star of this show. Carambola, or star fruit, is known for its five-fingered points that shine spectacularly when cut crosswise. Grown in tropical climes from Southeast Asia to the Caribbean, this glossy yellow fruit is sweetly fragrant and juicy when ripe, with a slightly sour edge. It brings its golden beauty to a vibrant tomato salsa that accompanies these Mexican-spiced ground pork tacos. Illuminated with orange juice and flecked with cilantro, the coleslaw is another ray of starshine.

Cook the pork
Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the shallot and cilantro stems, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the pork*; season with all but a pinch of the spices and S&P. Cook, breaking up the meat, 4 to 6 min., until browned and cooked through. Add 1 tbsp water (double for 4 portions) and cook, 1 to 2 min., until slightly reduced. Cover and set aside in a warm spot.
