The slow cooked pork in this recipe is the real star of the show. If you want to make perfectly tender pork tacos, then this is the perfect recipe for you. And with a slow cooker, you don’t have to watch over your pot all day!
1 (5-pound) boneless pork shoulder roast (Boston butt), extra fat trimmed off
1 (12-oz.) bottle of beer
2 chipotles in adobo sauce
1 fresh pineapple, peeled and cored, then roughly chopped
1/2 cup chopped red onion
3 tablespoons chili powder (not cayenne)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Corn tortillas, for serving
Optional toppings: crumbled goat cheese, (extra) diced fresh pineapple, chopped fresh cilantro leaves, chopped red onions, diced avocado, thinly-sliced radishes
Cut the pork shoulder into 2-inch cubes. Add the pork to the bowl of the slow cooker.
Add the chipotles in adobo, pineapple, red onion, chili powder, lime juice, white vinegar, salt, cumin and black pepper to a blender or food processor. Puree until the mixture is completely smooth, about 30-60 seconds. Stir in the beer until it is evenly combined. Then pour the mixture on top of the pork, and toss until the pork is evenly coated.
Cook on low for 8-10 hours, or on high for 4-5 hours, until the pork is completely tender and shreds easily with a fork. Use two forks to shred the pork, then toss it in the remaining juices.
Serve warm on tortillas, garnished with optional toppings.
