Tacos to my left. Tacos to my right. CRISS CROSS. It’s taco time.
Y’all. TACO DAY is like every kids dream of a half birthday.
Here are two yummy recipes that go a little further than your classic taco kit, but involve the same, if not less, work.
3-4 pounds of pork shoulder or pork loin roast (if you go with something more lean it will be far less tender and delicious)
one onion cut into large chunks
Step 1: Cut pork into 4-5 large chunks.
Step 2: lay cut up onion on bottom of crockpot and place chunks of pork on top. Poor about half a cup of water into crock pot.
Step 3: generously season the pork. I’m sorry but I do not have exact measurements - 100 Days of Real Food has a great recipe that uses exact measurements for seasoning.
Step 4: Lid on top, cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4ish hours, or on high for 2 and low for 2 more if maybe you forget to thaw your meat completely.
