ClemenGold<sup>®</sup> Mandarin Teriyaki Pork Tacos

ClemenGold® Mandarin Teriyaki Pork Tacos

Who doesn’t love a tasty taco night? The joy of dropping everything in the centre of the table and watching everyone help themselves is a sight I’ll never tire of.

The spicy beans, caramelised teriyaki pork paired with the cooling sweet ClemenGold® mandarin is hands down my new favourite flavour combination.

Don’t take my word for it though, try it for yourself.
