These are the best pork tacos I ever had! This is another recipe from my foodie friend, Pleclare! She posted this as a BBQ pork chop recipe, but I tried it this way and I've never looked back! My whole family loves this! Its an easy crockpot recipe and you'll just want to drink the marinade...its so full of flavor!
