Pork Tostado with Plum Sauce

Pork Tostado with Plum Sauce

1 pound boneless cooked pork loin – chopped or shredded
1 16 3/4-ounce can purple plums
1 clove garlic – minced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
4 flour tortillas
1 cup shredded red cabbage
3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (3 ounces)
1/2 cup diagonally-sliced green onion
Fresh cilantro (optional)

Drain plums, reserving 3/4 cup of the juice. Remove pits and discard. Coarsely chop plums. Place plum juice, plums, garlic, brown sugar, soy sauce, lemon juice, cinnamon and ginger in blender container or food processor; purée or process till smooth.

In a large skillet combine pork and plum mixture. Bring to boiling over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 30-40 minutes or until sauce is reduced enough to just coat pork.

Meanwhile, place tortillas on ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a 425 degree F. oven for 10-12 minutes or until crisp.

Spoon pork mixture onto tortillas. Sprinkle cabbage, cheese and green onion atop.

Garnish with cilantro, if desired.
