Thursday tacos

This was a simple meal inspired by the corn tortillas that had been sitting in our fridge for a while.

I had soaked some black beans overnight; those got cooked with a couple bay leaves and the rind from a piece of smoked bacon. These I served topped with a sprinkling of toasted cumin and crushed coriander seeds and some sour cream

I quick-pickled ("killed") some onions by thinly slicing them and mixing them with salt, lime juice, and a bit of cider vinegar.

The protein for the tacos was small pork cubes (shoulder and smoked bacon) that I cooked at medium-high heat until they were nicely browned and crisp.

A salad and some salsa completed a very enjoyable meal.
