Colorado has been experiencing some pretty scorching temps this summer so this week’s blog from the Gourmet Meat & Sausage Shop is a mouthwatering pulled pork pineapple taco recipe.
The balance of pulled pork meat coupled with pineapple is a refreshing alternative to heavier meals. PLUS, it’s easy.
Pulled Pork Pineapple Taco Recipe
- 2-pound pork loin roast (we can trim it for you!)
- 1/3 cup apple juice
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 1 package of corn tortillas (soft)
- 2 cups of diced pineapple (fresh is best)
In a small bowl blend brown sugar, chili powder, salt and garlic powder. Place your pork loin roast in a slow cooker and rub your recently-mixed dry ingredients on the outside of the meat. Around the bottom of your slow cooker, pour in your apple juice (not over the pork roast). Cover and let it simmer all day for around 7 hours.
Pork should be tender enough to shred with a fork. Warm your corn tortillas, add your meat, and top it with your fresh pineapple and serve with a side of slaw.
