  • Ready In

  1. Cut pork into 1/4- to 1/2-inch cubes. Put a 10- to 12-inch nonstick frying pan over high heat, add pork, and stir often until meat is gray, 5 to 6 minutes.
  2. Add orange peel, 1 cup orange juice, onion, and cumin to pan. Stir often over medium-high heat until liquid has evaporated and meat is lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Add 1/2 cup orange juice, scrape browned bits free, and stir until juice evaporates, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add black beans and remaining 1/2 cup orange juice and stir just until beans are hot, about 2 minutes.
  4. Serve pork mixture in warm tortillas, adding green onions, sour cream, salsa, and salt to taste. Roll to enclose filling.

This was ok. First, it took more like one hour before the pork was tender enough. After only twenty five minutes it was like rubber. And please, DON'T trim the fat! That is what makes it so ...

We thought the orange was overpowering in this recipe. I don't think I will make this again. It was quick and easy to make but I would cut the OJ to 1 cup and use water or broth for the other cu...

Uck..Didn't quite taste like I thought it would. The orange flavor was very faint, almost like an after taste.. I'm not sure if the orange and the spices mixed well. Probably won't make again.
