Do you know what a cook lives for? The look in friends’ eyes when they’ve bitten into something you’ve made, and they’re deliriously happy about what they’re eating. Their wide-eyed smiley faces would say, “OMG, WOW,” if they weren’t so busy eating, and wanting to be polite and not talk with their mouths full.
That’s the response I got from my friends when I served them tacos with this slow cooked pulled pork.
Of course how could you not love tacos filled with spicy shredded pork?
Best thing is that it’s crazy easy to make, especially in a slow cooker. You just rub a pork shoulder roast with a blend of ground chiles and spices, let the roast sit in that rub for a while, brown the roast and then slow cook it until it’s fall apart tender. Use a couple forks to pull it apart into tasty shreds and use the meat as a filling for tacos, tamales, or burritos.
