escabeche pulled pork tacos with loco orange slaw

a recipe 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!
