The pulled pork popular in the South takes hours, even days to prepare; starting with digging a pit. Our barbecued pork has a similar flavor, but takes just minutes to make.
2 1/2 tablespoons wine vinegar
1/4 tablespoon dried thyme
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
Fresh-ground black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
1 pound pork tenderloin
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 cup bottled barbecue sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
6 ounces cheddar or monterey jack cheese, shredded (about 1 1/2 cups)
4 9-inch flour tortillas
1/2 head romaine lettuce, chopped (about 2 cups)
3 tomatoes, diced
2 green bell peppers, diced
1 cucumber, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and diced
Barbecued-Pork Burritos with Chopped Salad Recipe at
In a medium bowl, whisk 1 1/2 tablespoons of the vinegar, the thyme, 3/4 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Add the olive oil slowly, whisking.

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the pork into 1/4-inch slices, and then cut the slices into 1/4-inch strips. In a large frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the cooking oil over high heat. Add half the pork, sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and sauté until cooked through and just beginning to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon cooking oil and cook the rest of the pork, seasoning it with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Return all the pork to the pan. Stir in the barbecue sauce, cumin, the remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar, and two thirds (about 1 cup) of the cheese. Spread some of the pork mixture in a line just below the center of each tortilla. Roll up the burritos and put them seam-side down in a small baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes, sprinkle with the remaining cheese, and bake until the cheese melts and the filling is hot, about 2 minutes longer.

Meanwhile, put the lettuce, tomatoes, bell peppers, and cucumber into the bowl and toss.Put the salad on plates and top with the burritos.
