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


  • 1Place all ingredients for Escabeche Paste in a mini food processor.
  • 2Pulse until a liquid paste is formed.
  • 3Cover roast evenly with the Escabeche mixture.
  • 4Pour chicken broth into crock pot. Add onion and green chiles.
  • 5Place roast in crockpot and cook on low for 8 - 10 hours.
  • 6Remove roast onto cutting board. Reserve liquid.
  • 7Shred 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.

  • 9On heated corn tortillas (I use the microwave) place some Pork Escabeche followed by My Crazy Orange Coleslaw. Then add your favorite garnishes. Enjoy!
