Unusual flavors take a long time to cook, right? Trying out something new requires effort beyond the normal work week dinner preparation? Not so! This jerk tacos give you the uniqueness of tangy, smoky jerk sauce, with a slight hint of heat, plus a charred pineapple slaw that will knock your socks off. And they come together in a half hour or less. You could get a whole roll of photos developed in that time! (Kids, ask your parents.)

Before You Cook
Prepare the Ingredients
Coarsely chop pineapple.
Mince cilantro (no need to stem).
Halve lime and juice.
Slice half the jalapeño into thin rounds. Stem remaining jalapeño, halve, seed, remove ribs, and mince. Wash hands and cutting board after working with jalapeño.
Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry. Season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.
Cook Pineapple and Make Slaw
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add pineapple to hot pan and stir occasionally until lightly charred, 2-3 minutes.
Transfer pineapple to a mixing bowl and combine with slaw mix, cilantro, 1 tsp. lime juice, 1 tsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.
Reserve pan, no need to wipe clean.
Cook the Steak Strips
Return pan used to char pineapple to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.
Add steak strips and minced jalapeños (to taste) to hot pan. Stir occasionally until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes.
Stir in jerk sauce and remove from burner.
While steak strips cook, heat tortillas.
Heat the Tortillas
Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave, 30 seconds.
