Shredded Pork Tacos

"For best results marinade for a couple of hours before putting it in the crock pot. I suggest serving this with peach salsa or another type of fruit salsa. My husband likes to substitute beer for the water."

    I'm using this recipe to slow cook a 7 lb pork loin. How much longer should I cook it on low in the slow cooker? Assume longer than the 3 hours stated in the recipe for a 1 pound pork loin. Thanks

    I used pork shoulder to make this. I didn't marinate it but it turned out great anyway. Because of my choice of meat I let it cook on low for 8 hours. The meat was very tender and very spicy. I didn't need any salsa with it. Made for some super tasting tacos. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7.

    This was a home run at our house. They even went out of their way to comment on how good it was. We have pork loin quite a bit because it goes on sale regularly and this was a great change of taste. Thanks!

    This was REALLY good. My girl friend is not big on eating meat (maybe once a week) and she pigged out. she ate 5 tacos! :)<br/><br/>This is a well blended, and very authentic recipe. wonderful flavor.<br/><br/>I used Embasa chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Comes in a 12 oz. can. Just puree, use what you need, and refrigerate or freeze for later use. I hate buying fresh cilantro. I usually end up throwing quite a bit away after it spoils in the fridge. I use Litehouse freeze-dried (just add water) cilantro. I just added a 1/4 cup, and a tbls. or so more water to the recipe. I also used two tenderloin chops (aprox. 1.2lbs), but I would not hesitate to use a whole loin roast, and adjust ingredient qtys. for a large crowd. <br/><br/>We ate ours with sour cream and a four cheese Mexican blend.<br/><br/>Easy to prepare, great taste. You will not be disappointed.

    Wonderful flavor in this pork recipe!!! I made it using a Boston Butt Pork roast, which was about 1 1/2 lbs, so I scaled up the rest of the ingredients to match. I am a whimp when it comes to hot and spicy foods, but loved this meat. I plan to use it in another recipe for tostados later this week. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT8.

    A well-blended combination of seasonings that made for a delish pork dinner. Loved the spicyness.. just right for us. Made for Best of Cookbook tag 2011.


I love trying new dishes. For me, food is a way of experiencing the world without leaving my home, and I'm hoping that as my two sons get older that I can convince them to come with me on my culinary adventures.
