A Dinnertime Treat!
Taco Tuesday only comes around once a week on Instagram, but having a huge batch of pork shoulder you just slow cooked can make it a breeze to have tacos every night of the week!
During a recent shopping trip to our favorite mall, we passed by a kitchen store we’d never noticed before. Thinking it’d be the perfect opportunity to snag a slow cooker, we went inside and inquired about them. Turns out, the store was having a 20% off sale on certain items, our bright red slow cooker included! So with bags of summer clothes in tow, we stored our slow cooker in the car and made our way home, getting inspired by Pinterest’s overwhelming amount of slow cooker recipes.
Our first recipe idea was a basic version of pulled pork with tons of spices. And since we were overflowing with low carb wraps, we decided to use some up in a Keto Pulled Pork Tacos recipe!
The bulk of the prep laid in the slow cooking of course. That took about 10 hours, but with the slow cooker, we were free to do whatever we wanted during those 10 hours (which was mostly sleep, since we let it run overnight). That morning, we woke up to the sweet, sweet smell of delicious braising meat. So instead of our usual breakfast of scrambled eggs, cheese and bacon, we quickly whipped up some Pulled Pork Tacos.
The assembly is up to you! We chose to layer on pork, shredded cheese, guacamole from a few nights before, sour cream and cilantro – keeping it classic. These turned out quite heavy, but we each scarfed down 2 tacos.
Note: our nutritional information reflects what we estimate we added to these tacos. Each assembly will be different so your nutrition may drastically differ from ours. We encourage you to calculate your own nutrition, if that’s important to you.
