Pulled Pork Tacos With Red Cabbage Slaw

These Pulled Pork Tacos with red cabbage slaw are a really simple way to use up leftover pulled pork using our deliciously smoky Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste. However, if you have decided to make the pulled pork from scratch, we recommend making a big batch the day before, perhaps freeze some, and then enjoy it throughout the week in tacos!

If we talk about recipes that are perfect for batch cooking, pulled pork has to be at the top of the list. What’s not to love about a Mexican Pulled Pork? A big piece of meat is infused with our famous Chipotle Paste, and slowly cooked until tender. It can later be used as one main meal as well as a few quick lunches!

A slow cooker is a perfect way to achieve this, but if you don’t own one you can also cook your meat in the oven. If it’s the latter, we recommend you cut your meat into smaller pieces and place them into a baking dish with the rest of the ingredients. You can then cover tightly with tin foil and cook at 160°C / 320°F for 5-6 hours. Just make sure to check your meat from time to time and add water to prevent it from going completely dry.

The perfect way to serve these pulled pork tacos is over a warm soft taco, with red cabbage slaw on top and a good squeeze of Gran Luchito Chipotle Pineapple Sauce, the best smoky and sweet sauce to compliment your tacos.

If Red cabbage slaw isn’t your thing then you could try these Pulled Pork Tacos with our Mexican Corn recipe.

How to make it

Step 1 – We recommend doing this in the morning so it’s ready to eat later that day. If you are having them for lunch, perhaps do the pork the day before

Step 2 – Do this 30 min before serving the pork

  1. Place the meat in the slow cooker and all the ingredients listed for pulled pork. There is no specific order or fancy way about it! Just add all the ingredients into the slow cooker, cover with a lid and let it cook on the high mode for 5 to 6 hours
  2. Prepare the quick slaw by adding into a bowl the cabbage, red onion, red chilli, Smoky Chipotle Fajita & Taco Mix, lime juice, extra virgin olive oil, a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix everything with a spoon, taste and adjust seasoning if necessary, reserve
  3. After 6 hours of cooking uncover your pork and shred the tender meat with the help of two forks. Mix in with the juices
  4. Warm up your Soft Taco Wraps over a hot pan.
  5. Once everything is ready, build your tacos using the warm Soft Tacos, pulled pork, quick red cabbage slaw, fresh salad leaves and finally a good squeeze of Gran Luchito Pineapple Chipotle Sauce, keep it on the side as you may need to add more as you go along, enjoy!

FAQs

What cut of pork is best for pulled pork tacos?

A good choice is a shoulder roast (also called Boston butt) because it has good marbling for flavour and tenderness when cooked low and slow.

How spicy is the Chipotle Pineapple Sauce?

The Chipotle Pineapple Sauce has a medium level of heat from the chipotle chilli peppers. The sweetness from the pineapple helps balance out the smoky spice. If you prefer more or less heat, simply adjust the amount of sauce used.

Can I make the slaw ahead of time?

For best texture, it's recommended to make the red cabbage pineapple slaw right before serving. The salt can cause the cabbage to become watery if dressed too far in advance. But you can prep all the slaw ingredients ahead and simply toss together with the lime dressing when ready to serve.
