Food For Thought Tuesday: Shredded Pork Tacos

Shredded pork tacos are a staple in our house.  We eat them at least once a month.  The reason I love making them is because they are so easy to make!

Shredded Pork 

1-2 lb boneless pork roast
3 cups salsa or until it just about covers your roast.
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 can diced green chilies

In crockpot add all ingredients.  Cook on low for 8-10 hours or until roast starts to shred easily.  

*Check on meat about half way through to see if you need to add more liquids.  I sometimes add a little more salsa about halfway through.  

**Taste the sauce when meat is cooked through and see if it's as sweet as you like it.  If not add a little more brown sugar.  


Corn tortillas
Shredded pork
Queso Fresco or any cheese you prefer
Chopped tomatoes
Sour cream

Fill taco shell with meat and then top with cheese, sour cream, tomatoes, and cilantro.

I usually serve these tacos with Spanish rice or Cilantro Lime Rice.
