Wrap the tortillas in aluminum foil and pop into the oven to warm for 7-8 minutes, while you cook the pork.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the marinated pork (with marinade) and spread into a thin layer. Let cook, undisturbed, until pork starts to brown, then stir and continue cooking, stirring, until pork is cooked through. Remove pork to a serving platter.
