Say goodbye to hunting down the tastiest taco trucks in your neighborhood. And open your own (I want a cut of the profits!) with these super delicious and easy-to-make pork tacos. I recently served these to a party of 30 + for my son’s 2nd birthday party. The neighbors joined us and actually came back for seconds later on! Get the recipe after the jump…
Pulled Pork Taco Recipe
1 pork tenderloin (a little over a pound), unless you are cooking for a crowd, then get a 4 lb pork shoulder and trim the fat and triple the recipe.
1 cup chicken broth
2 bay leaves
1 onion, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 bay leaves
very good quality corn tortilla (this does not translate to fancy) skip the big national brands and try to get locally hand made. If you can’t find fresh Trader Joe’s makes a great corn and wheat tortilla which is what’s in the photo!
cilantro, finely chopped red onion, salsa for serving.
Break out the crock pot, cut the pork into about 4 pieces. Place some of the onion in the crock pot and put the pork pieces over the onion. Pour in the broth and seasonings and cover with remaining onion. Cook on high for 5 hours or on low for 10. When the pork is done, take two forks and shred the meat. Place in heated tortilla top with onion cilantro and a bit of salsa and show down! Makes 12 tacos.
