Ingredients

300 g pork steaks (cut into very thin strips)
2 tbsp olive oil
¼ cup spring onion (finely chopped)
2 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
1 pinch dried oregano
1 pinch dried thyme
Salt & pepper
6 corn tortillas
¼ cup corn oil

Directions

1

Heat a large pan with the oil and when hot add the spring onion and garlic and fry over a moderate heat for 1-2 minutes. Add the pork and stir fry for 1 minute. Add the salt, chilli powder, pepper, thyme, oregano and salsa mexicana. Bring to a simmer then cook for 5 minutes until thickened, almost dry. Remove from the heat.

Place 6-8 tortillas in the microwave for about 1 minute until soft. Quickly remove them and cover. Take one and then spoon about 1 heaped tablespoon of meat into the bottom half of the tortilla. Bring the bottom up and roll up the tortilla into a cigar. Secure with 2 toothpicks and repeat the process with the remaining tortillas.
