While meat is marinating, dice red onion. Seed and dice tomatoes and peppers and place on a large plate. Slice avocado and radishes for additional toppings.

Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, and sauté the pork until tender — roughly 5 minutes.

Man, were we inspired by the “Brewing Change” in Springdale, Arkansas, this Saturday! We took the cider flavors we explored at Black Apple Crossing and a little influence from just across the street at Taquería Don Güero to make a brand new favorite. We can’t wait to hear how our recipe for Cider Pork Tacos turns out for you!
