Escabeche Pulled Pork Tacos With Loco Orange Slaw

Tammy Brownlow


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!

How to Make Escabeche Pulled Pork Tacos With Loco Orange Slaw


  1. Place all ingredients for Escabeche Paste in a mini food processor.
  2. Pulse until a liquid paste is formed.
  3. Cover roast evenly with the Escabeche mixture.
  4. Pour chicken broth into crock pot. Add onion and green chiles.
  5. Place roast in crockpot and cook on low for 8 - 10 hours.
  6. Remove roast onto cutting board. Reserve liquid.
  7. 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.
  8. Cook on low for another 30 minutes. Gather you garnishes and get ready to assemble.
  9. On heated corn tortillas (I use the microwave) place some Pork Escabeche followed by My Crazy Orange Coleslaw. Then add your favorite garnishes. Enjoy!
