Escabeche Pulled Pork Tacos With Loco Orange Slaw

Tammy Brownlow

By

This is my version of a street taco. The spiced pork has all the traditional Mexican spices that I love. I just had to try it with My Loco Orange Coleslaw. This turned out to be a wicked combination that I will make again. I originally wanted to cook the pork on the grill to add another layer of flavor, but my weatherman has been very disappointing lately...rain all week.

Next time I will cook the pork on the grill - and update this recipe with that version as well.

Rain or shine, I hope you give the recipe a try y'all - Happy Cooking!

Place all ingredients for Escabeche Paste in a mini food processor.

Shred the roast and add back to the crock pot. Cover with enough of the reserved liquid to desired moistness. Don't over do it - you don't want a "soupy" mixture.
