  • Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F).
  • Mix the chili powder with the cumin and salt. Rub the pork tenderloins with the spice mix. Place in a baking dish and bake for 15 minutes.
  • In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat and brown the garlic and onions for 5 minutes. Add the cabbage, and cook stirring for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour the beer into the saucepan and bring to a boil. Add salt and pepper. Let simmer until the cabbage is tender and the beer is nearly evaporated.
  • Remove the pork tenderloin from the oven. Cover with aluminum foil and let stand 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Warm the tortillas. Fill each one with a little bit of the beer cabbage, 2 slices of pork tenderloin, cheese and cilantro. Serve with sour cream.

Suggestion

Storage

  • The cooked red cabbage will keep in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 days. The cooked pork tenderloin will keep in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. For best results, assemble right before serving.
