SWEET PORK TACOS



If you haven't tried this recipe submitted by Barb at the Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner Blog, well, you really should. We had them tonight and they are sooo good. They were easy to make and made a ton, so I am already looking forward to lunch tomorrow! Thank you Barb!

Pork roast cooked in a crock pot, accompanied with a green sauce, rolled in soft tortillas with rice & other favorite toppings. I have also made this and served as salad. I cut tortillas into thin strips, sprayed with oil and baked until crispy, this is really good too!

1 pork roast
2 cups salsa
2 cups brown sugar

Combine above ingredients in crock pot; cook for 8-10 hours on low or 6-8 hours on high.

GREEN SAUCE:

1 1/3 cup sour cream
¾ cup mayonnaise
1 small bunch fresh cilantro
1 pkg. dry ranch dressing
1-2 cloves fresh garlic, crushed
1-2 dashes tobasco
4 Tbsp salsa verde
1 lime, juiced

Combine all ingredients in blender & blend.

ADDITIONAL FILLINGS:

Rice, prepared any way you choose
Tortillas, soft
Cheddar cheese, grated
Black beans
Tomatoes, diced
Lettuce, chopped

An hour before serving, take roast out and shred with fork and knife. Put it back and heat until serving time. Wrap rice, pork and other ingredients in tortilla. Put green sauce on last and roll up tortilla.

  1. How big was the pork roast that you used?

    1. Lisa, Costco used to have the perfect sized one (sorry I don't even know the weight cause I just grabbed it at Costco and they were all the same), but they haven't for quite a while, now Costco has two smaller round ones in a pack and so I use both of those. They are good, but the other one was a bit better, it must be a different cut. Anyway, the sauce that you put in the crock pot with it makes a TON so no worries about having too much meat in there.
