BBQ Pulled Pork Tacos

Barbecue has always had an intimidating allure – the complex flavors, intricate techniques, and scientific aspects can be overwhelming. But fear not, my friends! Today, I present to you my take on BBQ pulled pork tacos, crafted with love in a slow cooker. It’s a recipe that allows home cooks to enjoy the deliciousness of BBQ without the fuss.

BBQ Pulled Pork Tacos

Let’s start with the star of the show: the pulled pork. To keep things relatively healthy, I opted for a leaner cut of pork – pork loin. It’s perfect for shredding and enjoying throughout the week. Seasoned with a simple blend of salt, cumin, and paprika, the pork loin is slow-cooked to perfection. After 4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low, it effortlessly falls apart, ready to be infused with the rich flavors of BBQ sauce.

The BBQ sauce I’ve chosen for this recipe is my all-time favorite sugar-free BBQ sauce. It boasts a tantalizing combination of caramelized onions, chipotle peppers, tomato paste, and a medley of spices and herbs. This homemade sauce, without any added sugar or artificial sweeteners, is downright addictive. But, if you prefer convenience, feel free to use your favorite store-bought BBQ sauce instead. Toss the pulled pork with a generous portion of the sauce until you achieve your desired sauciness.

Now, let’s not forget about the cilantro lime coleslaw, the perfect accompaniment to these delectable tacos. In line with our healthy-ish theme, I’ve replaced the usual mayo with plain Greek yogurt. The yogurt adds a refreshing punch that complements the savory BBQ pork, elevating the entire meal. To whip up this side dish sensation, toss a 16-ounce bag of coleslaw with plain Greek yogurt, white wine vinegar, lime juice, honey, salt, garlic, and cilantro. Voila! Your coleslaw is ready to rock the flavor party.

But wait, there’s more! Can BBQ pulled pork be frozen, you ask? Absolutely! To freeze, allow the pulled pork to cool to room temperature. Place it in an airtight freezer bag, leaving a couple of inches of room at the top to accommodate expansion, and freeze. It can remain frozen for 4-6 months. To reheat, simply warm it up in a medium pot on the stove or in a large microwave-safe bowl. Add more barbecue sauce if desired.
