Fresh, Summery, sweet and peppery. This pork is wrapped in salad and a tortilla for a super quick and healthy after-work dinner.
I’ve been keeping something from you but not on purpose, I promise. Honey Pepper Pork Wraps. Tadaaaa!
Main meals are always tricky to blog about. Cooking later in the day means there is minimal light left to take photos. In Winter it’s impossible to photograph a main meal unless I cook early, hence we often eat around 5pm, just so I can get that shot or sometimes we’ll have main meals at lunch time.
Then comes Summer and with it, lots of extra light and a return to normal dinner times. (Breathes a sigh of relief, aaaaaahhhh.)
My Honey Pepper Pork Wraps are the perfect Summer dish and it’s also perfect as an after-work meal because it comes together so quickly. It’s one of those meals where you need everything laid out, ready at the start, because once you start cooking the pork you’re mere minutes away from calling out “Dinner’s readyyyyyyyyy!”
This is a regular round these parts. We eat it a lot. It’s one of my favourite, favourite meals ever. In fact, as I type this post, I am eating for lunch.
By all means, if you don’t like spicy food you can dial down the pepper and it will still taste great but if you want the real deal, don’t be shy with the grinder. It’s meant to be spicy and have some kick, so I use 2-3 teaspoons of freshly ground pepper. I say 2-3 because it really depends on how patient I’m feeling that day and how long I want to wait for the pepper grinder to do it’s thang. Sadly patience isn’t one of my virtues 🙂
Also, I use my Homemade Wholemeal Tortillas for this dish. Check out the recipe. These are simple to make and you can keep a batch in the freezer for whenever you want one.
