I don't know about you, but my grocery shopping gets done once a week every Sunday. Typically I plan out my meals for the week to buy accordingly, but sometimes an unexpected craving comes along that requires buying a whole new load of groceries and ingredients. Cravings like tacos.
For whatever reason I never plan tacos, but when the desire strikes I MUST have them. But I had zero ingredients for tacos (well, okay I had two. Lime and avocado. Whatever.) so making them would require buying ground beef, lettuce, salsa, sour cream, cheese...you get the picture. An excess of food and a strain on my wallet. Too much when I already had plenty of food at home, but I needed to have tacos. So I stopped at the store to buy flour tortillas and headed home determined to make it happen with what I already had. Damn am I glad I decided to be financially responsible because Asian Pork Tacos were produced!
How I haven't thought to do this before I have no idea. These tacos were mouthwatering - perfectly balanced and had a punch of umami flavor. The avocado provided creaminess, the yogurt a nice tang, and the bean sprouts the right amount of crunch. Not to mention, the bok choy and shiitake mushroom topping could easily turn into its own amazing side dish with a different meal.
The meal came together very quickly (no more than 30 minutes including prep time!) and will definitely become part of my easy weeknight rotation.
