Slow Cooker Shredded Pork Tacos

You MUST add this to your weekly meal plan. This may be one of the best dishes I’ve ever made in the slow cooker. And it was SO. SIMPLE.

I bought a 2-pack of pork sirloin roast. We made roast and gravy with one, and I decided to throw this one in the slow cooker.

The result: taco greatness


Here is what I did.

Spray a slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Layer the bottom with sliced onions. Cut the pork in large chunks (I do this so the seasoning reaches more surface area…you can totally use pork tenderloin too!) Place the pork on top the onions and season with taco seasoning.

Top with 1 cup salsa verde (medium). The medium spice level gives it a zing without being spicy.

Cook on low for 8 hours.

Your whole house will smell amazing.

Shred the meat.

Time to assemble the tacos.

I put the pork on the tortilla first (straining the juice so you don’t have a soggy taco). Then I topped it with queso fresco cheese, sliced avocado, and chipotle ranch.

Other yummy toppings would be black beans, jalapenos, green onions, sour cream….the options are endless!!!
