Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. On a tray with parchment paper lay the tomatoes, garlic and onion. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast until nicely charred.

Step 2: Once the tomatoes, onions, and garlic have cooled, add lemon juice, honey, Martina’s Original Hot Sauce and blend together, set aside.

Step 3: Season your pork with salt and pepper. Add olive oil to cast iron skillet and sear pork on all sides.

Step 4: Once pork is seared, pour in your sauce. Cover and bring down to a simmer for about 1 hour or until meat is tender. Remove from sauce and let cool.

Step 5:  Cut meat into small pieces and reheat in a cast iron skillet. This will give you a good amount of char. Serve with the reserved sauce it was cooked in and your favorite taco topping!
