    I made this last night but grilled it over charcoal in a grill wok. Very tasty but wouldn't really call it fajitas, just a pork soft taco. I will definitely make it again.

    Can I tell you how much I LOVE this recipe??? Wow, so great and easy. I have pork tenderloin in the weekly meal rotation because it is so delicious, moist, and quick to prepare, yet I had never used it in fajitas before. I served this with the choice of flour tortillas, tortillas, or just as a "bowl" for a lower carb option. The seasonings are spot on and the pork is still moist. I also served sliced avacado , sour cream, and salsa on the side. Lynne, TOH Volunteer Food Editor

    This is a delicious, fast recipe. The seasonings are just right. I personally don 't care for flour tortillas and wish I had thought to just have tortilla chips on the side.. I think I might add more veggies next time.

    Easy! Great! Quick! This is a great use of pork tenderloin, wasn't dry. Very flavorful. Didn't have green pepper but lots of onions. Served Black bean and corn salad with it. Along with a bag of tortilla chips for a great family weeknight meal! As a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home magazine I enjoyed recipes that I can prepare quickly and yet still give lots of flavor to the dish!
