Pork Quesadillas

Published: May 10, 2013

Prep/Cook Time: 65 minutes

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, plus more for grates
  • 1 pork tenderloin (3/4 to 1 pound)
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 1 green pepper, halved
  • 4 (10-inch or burrito-size) flour tortillas
  • 4 tablespoons spicy brown mustard, plus more for serving
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced Hatfield Deli Ham
  • 8 ounces provolone or Swiss cheese, coarsely shredded (about 2 cups)

Directions

  1. On a work surface, sprinkle garlic with salt. Using the flat side of a chef's knife, draw the blade across the garlic mixture, repeating until a paste forms. In a small bowl, combine with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and the oil. Rub all over pork.
  2. Heat grill to high; oil grates. Place pork on hottest part of grill; cover. Cook 10 to 20 minutes, turning occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part registers 155 degrees. Let rest 5 minutes; thinly slice across the grain.
  3. Meanwhile, place onion slices and green pepper on cooler part of grill; cover. Cook, turning once, until soft and beginning to brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, further slice onions and peppers and place in pan over heat.
  4. Spread 1 tablespoon mustard on each tortilla, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Dividing evenly, layer half of each tortilla with ham, pork, onion, green pepper and cheese. Fold tortillas; press to close.
