This week we decided on pork tacos. I had the seasonings left from the Daal last week and wanted to use them. They are not a normal set of seasonings that I would cook with so I wanted to hurry and use them. I used mini flour tortillas, pork loin, pico de gallo, crema and Mexican 4 cheese blend.
I cooked everything in the crock pot, because I like the phrase, "Set it and forget it". In the bottom of my crock pot I started with my veggie base of red onions, red and orange bell pepper and celery. I also added minced garlic and three Chipotle spice cubes. For the seasonings I used cumin, ground coriander, paprika, turmeric and white pepper. I don't usually cook with salt anymore and pork is plenty salty anyway. I cooked everything in the slow cooker (which by the way is one of the many great gifts Brother has given me. It is a rice cooker/slow cooker) for 4 hours. I think the meat was ready at 2.5 hours, but I let it really cook down and get tender.
Then I shredded it and portioned it out for the three of us. Shi-Shi and I only eat lunch from home Monday thru Thursday and treat ourselves to eating out on Friday. Friday is my true cheat day and I think it keeps me sane from eating the same stuff over and over.
On Tuesday Shi-Shi and I decided we needed lettuce, so we added that Wed and Thurs along with some Tapatio. Then these tacos were perfection!
Look at how beautiful this looks:
