As a working mom I am always on the hunt for super simple family meals and one thing that seems to get overlooked is my slow cooker. Why, oh why, do I not use this thing more often? Seriously… the thought that I can just toss ingredients into one bowl and walk away is as easy as it gets. What makes these easy pork tacos even better is that they only require a few ingredients!
But FIRST, you need a Slow Cooker! I love this one for the locking lid. That feature is a MUST if you plan to take your meal to a pot luck or gathering.
I started with a pork roast. This one was 3lbs which is a good size if you are feeding a hungry crowd (think game day) or a large family. It also made it so that my family of 3 could save some for leftover meals.
Next I added my secret ingredient! The line of Campbell’s Sauces come in a variety of flavors and I decided to try the Apple Bourbon Pulled Pork and it was phenomenal. These packets are “Easy to Use”, whether for an Every Day meal or Game Day get-together and keeps your ingredient list to a minimum. I just poured it directly over my meat, placed the lid on the cooker, and let things cook for about 8 hours. That means my total prep time was UNDER 5 minutes which frees up the rest of the day for more fun things!
When it came time to shred the meat it was so tender. I just used to forks to pull it apart and tossed it in the surrounding meat. Easy peasy.
Toss your meat and some of my apple slaw onto a tortilla and you’ve got the perfect meal. We used these as a pot luck take along and everyone begged for the recipe. I’m pretty sure you could make this with any of the six flavor choices;Tavern Style Pot Roast, Apple Bourbon Pulled Pork, Beef Stew, Southern BBQ, Sweet Korean BBQ,or Hawaiian Pork.
