Oh boy, I’ve done it. This is officially one of my new favorite meals. And did I mention it’s easy? Not that I ever make any challenging meals, but hey whatever works! Mike and I wanted to try something we’ve never made before on Sunday and immediately I knew it had to be made with a crockpot because that instantly makes things easy…and delicious!
On our trip to Vegas, I had the best taco of my life. A pulled pork taco to be exact! I knew when we were home I had to recreate it!
This recipe has minimal ingredients and only takes work to shred it at the end!
Step 1: add your pork loin to your crockpot on low for 6-8 hours (depending in the size) you just need to add one beer (we used corona because that’s my fav) and one bottles worth of water or double if the loin is larger. You just need to cover the meat completely!
Step 2: drain off all the liquid once the loin is fully cooked. The fat will literally fall off!
Step 3: shred it baby! The meat should be tender enough to shred with a fork!
Step 4: add your mix ins to make this your taco filling! We added some BBQ sauce for creaminess and sweetness, drained rotel tomatoes for color, some diced sautéed peppers and onions for texture, and this salsa verde to kick it up a notch!
We also added salt, pepper, and some paprika for flavor!
Step 5: Next all you need to do is blend the ingredients together and let it sit on warm for about 20 minutes so the flavors can come together!
Step 6: fill your favorite taco shell (we used whole wheat soft tacos) with the filling….
it doesn’t look pretty yet… But remember to add a TON of chopped cilantro here….
Step 7: now fill that taco with some sweet and crunchy cole slaw!
this is the ingredient that makes every bite fun!!!!
Step 8: eat up!
This was such a delicious meal!! I hope you give it a try!!!!
