Camp Cooking: Lime Pork Tacos


On one of my recent adventures, I chose to mix it up and try some Mexican food. These lime pork tacos turned out absolutely delicious and were the perfect campsite meal while enjoying the surreal views of central Oregon.

Difficulty: Easy-Intermediate

Time: 2 ½ – 3 Hours

Ingredients

Pork, Onions, Bell Peppers, Cilantro, Salsa Verde, Beef Broth, Lime, Jalapenos, Minced Garlic, Salt, Pepper, Sour Cream, Small Corn Tortillas, Salsa

How to Cook

To Cook this meal, first grab your Overmont Dutch Oven and fill it with beef broth and salsa verde. Mix the two together to form the base of your slow cooking broth.

Next, chop up your onions and jalapenos, and throw them in the Dutch oven. Grab a bunch of cilantro and throw that in as well. Then add a healthy dose of lime, some minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Stir it all in to make sure all the ingredients are soaking in the mixture.

Now get your fire ready and set up your Stansport Cooking Tripod. You will want to set up the tripod fairly tall so you can allow the Dutch Oven to sit up higher above the fire. This allows the meat to slow cook.

Grab your pork and throw it into the Dutch Oven. Make sure it is at least half submerged in the liquid. Place the Dutch Oven over the fire and let it slow cook for about an hour.

After an hour, flip the meat. I like to take the cilantro and jalapenos and put them on top of the pork at this point, to really get the flavors locked in. Let the pork cook for another hour or so.

When there are about 20 min left on the Dutch Oven’s coking time, throw in your bell peppers, making sure they get submerged in the flavorful sauce.

Once the 20 min are up, set up your REDCAMP cooking grate over the fire. Throw on your bell peppers and onions. Pull apart your pork a little bit to make the meat smaller and flatter. Lay the meat over the fire. Cooking everything over the fire at the end adds a nice char and smoky flavor to the dish. Once fully cooked throw all the ingredients back in the Dutch Oven to soak in more flavor.

Grab your tortillas and put them on the cooking grate. Allow them to heat up over a couple minutes and get a little crispy, then take them off and put them on your plate.

At this point, you can put your pork, bell peppers, and onions on the tortilla. Top it off with some cilantro, lime, and your favorite salsa. I would also recommend adding some sour cream (if you like).

Now it is time to sit down and enjoy your delicious meal.
