This has honestly been one of my favorite recipes that we have created to date! It was really easy, not too expensive, and absolutely delicious. Not to mention making our flat smell great with BBQ pork!
Ingredients for the Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork:
This is what it looked like before the LOW and SLOW cooking time!
And this is what it will look like 15 hours later - such amazing flavor and just falls off the bone. Leave it on your "Keep Warm" setting until you are ready to serve.
So what else goes on these pulled pork tacos? And why tacos and not a pulled pork sandwich?
You are definitely welcome to do a traditional sandwich with a nice cool and creamy coleslaw on top, but these tacos add a unique flare onto your traditional pulled pork, and are fun for everyone to make! My favorite condiment on them is homemade chipotle sour cream sauce, which could not be easier to make.
Blend all ingredients together in your food processor. If you like it spicier, feel free to add in more chipotle peppers. I went more simple on this sauce (rather than adding in more spices/herbs) but you are welcome to improvise by adding fresh cilantro, parsely, or other spices.
I made a "build your own taco" station with a variety of other toppings to add. Another key player in this dish are the thick flour tortillas. They are thicker but smaller around than your normal flour tortillas, and act more like a bread or Indian Naan for these hearty tacos.
I would "pull" a bit of pork out a bit at a time and place in a bowl for people to add to their tacos. You can add a spoonful of juice on top. I did take some of the fat off of the top once it was done cooking, as it does tend to render quite a bit of fat.
Now you can assemble your tacos - I heated up the tortillas in a pan and then gave them to each individual who then assembled their own tacos!
