Slow Cooked Pulled Pork Tacos

Slow Cooked Pulled Pork Tacos

Ready in 5 hours

I modeled these tacos after my husband's favorite local Mexican restaurant. My husband now prefers mine and requests them often.

"Absolutely fabulous. I didn't have any pablanos handy so instead used a bit of the adobo sauce from some chipotle peppers in adobo. I've also used a dried chipotley pepper (seeds removed) and simply pulled it out after cooking. Phenomenal flavor in this dish. This one is in our regular menu rotation! Leftover go onto nachos or mixed with BBQ sauce for sandwiches."

2 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce

1 package Queso Blanco or Monteray Jack Chees; shredded
4 whole Limes; sliced in wedges, 4-6 limes
1 jar Salsa Verde
1 container Sour cream

Original recipe makes 10 Servings



To the slow cooker add onion, garlic, poblano peppers, Worcestershire sauce, lime juice, and cilantro. Season each side of the pork with half the seasonings and place in slow cooker, fat side up. Cover and slow cook on high for 4 to 6 hours until tender. Before serving, remove as much fat as possible from the pork then shred with two forks. Warm corn tortillas in the oven, then top with pork, cheese, sour cream, and salsa. Serve with lime wedge to be sqeezed over the taco just before eating. You could also garnish with some extra chopped cilantro.


Leftover pork can be used for enchiladas or a casserole. It would even make a great sandwhich.

Absolutely phenomenal!! Highly recommend to all! The taste was so good. We served with fresh homemade salsa and we can't wait to make again. For sure this will be a favorite in our household.

I don't know if it was the quality of the meat I used (Walmart), or the fact that I used the shoulder instead of the butt, I'm sure it had nothing to do with the recipe because all the ingredients work well with one another and it sounds delicious, however, even though I followed the recipe to a T I ended having to make an entirely different dinner :(
