How to Make It

Step 1

Combine the first 5 ingredients (through salt) in a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Add the pork, and turn to coat.

Step 2

Cook pork, covered, on high for 4–5 hours or on low for 7–8 hours, or until the meat is tender and pulls apart easily.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 350° 20 minutes before serving. Stack the tortillas, and wrap in foil. Bake for 15 minutes or until warm.

Step 4

Shred the pork with 2 forks, and stir meat into the cooking liquid. Serve shredded pork with warm tortillas, cilantro, sour cream, lime, and extra salsa.

Tried this after reading the great reviews and was not impressed. It came out dry and "eh" tasting. My fiance did not like it either. I think I'll stick with BBQ pulled pork tacos.

I enjoyed this recipe and love that it is cooked via slow cooker as it makes busy nights much easier. I used a very lean cut of port and it was too dense and dry...would tray again with the pork butt.

Great recipe. Cooked for 9 hours on low and pork was so tender and flavorful. Served with fat-free flour tortillas, lime juice, and shredded mozzarella. A couple of nights later, we mixed with some BBQ sauce on the stove top and had sandwiches.

I made this last night. HOLY MOLY GUACAMOLE! this is the best beef filling for a taco I have ever made. This is great! I used the slow cooker for 4 hrs on high and it was great. I did not put the cilantro in, just forgot, and still unbelievable! I had "cheesy black bean mash"(from southern living - march 2008) with it. All that was missing was some margaritas. OLAY!

Just made this and it was FANTASTIC! So easy to throw together and let cook all day, I did the 8 hours on low and it came out great. Don't let the Nutrional Information numbers scare you off, these portions are HUGE and the meat will serve far more than the 6 servings listed. I added a little bit of shredded lettuce to each taco and we loved them! Definetly a keeper!
