SET AND FORGET FOR THESE SLOW-COOKED PORK TACOS
The air is cooler, nights are longer, and my mind has turned – possibly prematurely – to slow-cooked meat and fuss-free dining.
I embraced the slow cooker many years ago; the original has since gone to the Great Appliance Heaven (the tip) but the one that replaced it is going strong.
This recipe for pulled pork is a set-and-forget job; you can put it on before you go to work and then just shred the meat and prepare the accompaniments 10 minutes before you sit down to eat. You can also cook the meat in a dutch oven at a low temperature with exactly the same results.
I like to serve the meat on warmed wheat tortillas with salad; it’s a well-balanced meal with not too many calories if you hold back on the sour cream. In Mexico, queso fresco, a fresh white cheese, is a common topping for tacos. In Australia substitute crumbled Danish feta.
This recipe will serve eight, with enough left over for sandwiches.
