I recently cook a pork shoulder for some pork chili I was making. (I’ll share that recipe later.) It was about six pounds, so there was a lot of pork left. I thought about what to do with this leftover pork shoulder meat, and it came to me — BBQ Pulled Pork Tacos.
This recipe is super simple to make and delicious. You’ll need:
– pulled pork (about 4-6 cups)
– 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce
– 1 medium size onion, chopped
– tbsp of olive oil
– tsp of cumin
– tsp of cayenne pepper
– tacos (soft or hard, your choice)
– shredded cheddar cheese to top
– salsa verde to top
– salt and pepper to taste
Heat your olive oil in a pan. Place your onions in the pan and cook until onions are soft and translucent. Get your pulled pork ready.
Place your pulled pork in the same pan with the sauteed onions. Add the cumin and cayenne pepper. Stir up to ensure the seasonings spread throughout the meat. Then add your barbecue sauce. You may want to add more or less, depending on your personal preference. The final BBQ pork should look like the picture at the bottom.
Here is my BBQ pulled pork taco, dressed up with salsa verde and shredded cheddar cheese. It was so yummy!!
